How do I format the x-axis to look like the first picture from the timechart documentation? To clarify,I want to have grouped labels for the hour, day / month, and year.

Currently, my x-axis looks like the second image.
Thanks for any help

timechart will format the x-axis for you depending on the timeframe and span you are using.

I uploaded what my graph currently looks like, is there a way to make the x-axis be formatted like the first image?

Try this

| timechart .....
| fieldformat time = strftime(time, "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M")

Hi,

your line chart looks like it is not coming from the timechart command.

Do you use the _time field? Or just time with values of the format %FT%T%z.

I tried to copy your effect and avoid using timechart on some internal data (last 24h):

index = _internal sourcetype=splunkd component=*process*
| stats count by component _time
| eval _time=strftime(_time,"%FT%T%z")
| xyseries _time component count

Even then the splunk search visulization formats my x axis of the line chart with "good" time labels.

But if I use this instead:

    index = _internal sourcetype=splunkd component=*process*
    | stats count by component _time
    | eval time=strftime(_time,"%FT%T%z")
    | xyseries time component count

The labels of the x axis look like in your chart.

Does this help?

Thanks for the help, I've posted my query above and I'm using the timechart in it. I ran your query and got the same display results initially but as it got more stats, splunk formatted the x-axis. To be clear, I want to get the formatting shown in the first image.
