Add a Secondary Y Axis

You can add a secondary Y axis to a bar or column chart to create a combo chart. For details of query requirements, see Combo Charts.

To add a secondary Y axis:

  1. On the Dashboards page, click the Edit toggle.
  2. Click the Panel's Settings icon.
  3. Click Y Axis.
  4. Under Secondary Y Axis, select the check box for either the average or the count value in your query, and select Line Chart.
  5. A second Y axis is displayed in the preview below.
  6. You can also change the Scale. Under Scale, select one:
    • Linear. (Default) A linear scale on the Y axis represents equal distance and change on a chart. So for example, if grid lines are enabled, a change of three spaces on a line graph may represent an increase of 3MB of data.
    • Logarithmic. A logarithmic scale uses an equal distance and percentage change. When graphing values that display over a wide range, change the scale to logarithmic to make the smaller values easier to perceive.
  7. Under Range, enter specific values for Minimum Value and Maximum Value.
  8. Click Save.
