Human readable byte counts on Y axis

New Member

I'm looking for a way to make the graph display a more readable version of values in the Y axis when I'm counting bytes.

Specifically, I'd like the Y axis to have a tick labeled 10K rather than 10,000, 6G rather than 6,000,000,000, etc. Is there a good way to do it automatically, without preselecting a scale? (I can label the graph "In GBs" and divide by 1000000000, but that's not ideal)

@viraptor, Chart Axis Label abbreviations have been introduced in Splunk Enterprise 7 as part of Chart Enhancements

charting.axisX.abbreviation (none | auto)   Enables the abbreviations of large X with the closest SI prefix.
charting.axisX2.abbreviation    (none | auto)   Enables the abbreviations of large X2 with the closest SI prefix.
charting.axisY.abbreviation (none | auto)   Enables the abbreviations of large Y with the closest SI prefix.
charting.axisY2.abbreviation    (none | auto)   Enables the abbreviations of large Y2 with the closest SI prefix.

PS: You can only abbreviate X-axis values in scatter and bubble charts.

Refer to Splunk documentation on Chart Configuration: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Viz/ChartConfigurationReference#Area.2C_Bubble.2...
