I'm afraid I cant say whether they are good or bad, I'm not that much of a battery expert. I'm assuming they are the maximum voltage they acheive i.e when fully charged and the lowest the voltage gets when being discharged.

You'd need to look at your battery spec to see if that is an acceptable range.

On 3rd van so not a total newbie....
Your min voltages look low, ours are a minimum of mid 11's?

An expert will be along soon.....

Seems your panels are working relatively well but something looks to be draining the battery too much at night. Or the batteries are done.

Agree the min voltage looks a bit on the low side either you have been running your batteries very low or it's due to a high load on the batteries as on load voltages are always lower than off load.
In the second photo your batteries are quite low and you are getting very little charge only 1.8 amps so no way will you get much of a charge into your batteries today.

Today's column shows that you are still in "bulk" charge, and the rest of the week it it has made it out of "bulk" ( usually 85% charge ) and into "absorption" but not into "float".

This is a pic from one of my Victron mppt's.
If you look at the column that says 4 days ago you can see that it made it through all stages of charge (y)

My thought, you are consuming more than the system is capable to put back in. You are discharging pretty deep( low) and never make it in to float already every other day. Despite the fact you harvested 1/2 kwh in last day, the batteries are so discharged that never made it to absorb. More solar, or, less discharge, and things will improve.
All the above on the assumption that your batteries are not shot.
