How to change precision of y-axis labels?


I'm charting some data that has values close, but under 1.0, e.g., in the range 0.9999 to 1.0 and all of my y-axis labels come out as "1". I can't specify minimum and maximum tick size because I want the graph to scale correctly according to the actual data (which could in some circumstances cover a wider range of values). I've tinkered with the XML and currently have:

  <title>Publisher Success By Node</title>
  <option name="charting.axisTitleY.text">Success Rate</option>
  <option name="charting.chart">line</option>
  <option name="charting.axisY.includeZero">false</option>
  <option name="charting.axisY.scale">false</option>
  <option name="charting.axisLabelsY.scale">true</option>

but nothing seems to make any difference. How can I specify the precision for the y-axis values, or turn off rounding, if that's what is happening? The graph itself is fine, adjusting correctly to the range of data - it's just the labels that are meaningless.

Interesting. I would try getting rid of the "charting.axisY.scale" and "charting.axisLabelsY.scale" options. The first one controls linear versus log scale for the axis, and the second one doesn't do anything that I know of.

If that doesn't help, could you post some sample results and/or a screenshot of what you're seeing? Also, what version of Splunk are you on?
