Here is a real-time L1 'F' fundamental message for the CME ES futures contract. I requested the watch about 15 minutes before open a few days ago using the @ES# symbol which stands in for the currently active contract (in case that makes a difference):

F,@ES#,22,,,4609.25,3683.50,,,,,,,,,,,,E-MINI S&P 500 SEPTEMBER 2023,,,,,,,,,,,,12,2,,12.42,8,43,07/19/2023,10/11/2022,,,,,,09/15/2023,,,ES,,,18:00:00,17:00:00,USD,50,--H--M--U--Z,0.250000000,,,,

Even though volume is recorded through the day in L1 updates and is available in the historical data, I notice that column 5 here for Average Volume is empty. I wondery, why?

The average volume is a ticker-generated fundamental value for equities only. @ES# is a future, so it won't have this value.

Well, I hope you will agree with me this is not clear from the docs, since the page for Fundamental Message Format lists the Origin of Data of this field as, "Calculated by DTN".

I agree, that could use some clarification. A lot of the docs are being update now so I'll make sure that is addressed.
