Change the Scale of the Y Axis

Your chart's Y axis can use a linear or logarithmic scale.

To change the scale of the Y axis:

  1. On the Dashboards page, click the Edit toggle.
  2. Click the Panel's Settings icon.
  3. Click Y Axis.
  4. 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.
  5. Click Save.
