How to get an Advanced XML timechart to not automatically create its own bins of milliseconds like a Simple XML timechart?

Hi,

The timechart in advanced XML creates its own bins of milliseconds. See below

Whereas in simple XML, it doesn't. See below

If you do not want to mess around with xml, you could enforce span size for timechart.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.5/SearchReference/timechart

For example:

... | timechart span=1h ...

Already span is specified in the search. It is span=1d

That is the minimum span that we can specify

The span is specified in the search. It is span=1d
That is the minimum span that we can specify

for the search macro, the span value is passed as an argument. There are two possible values: 1d and 7d.
The problem is when span=1d
