xyseries vs timechart labels

New Member

I've got a chart using xyseries to show multiple data series over time, and it's working fine, except when searching over longer time periods all the date labels are truncated to ...

Using timechart it will only show a subset of dates on the x axis. Is there a way to replicate this using xyseries?

perhaps the following answer will help you in your task :

Look at this search code which is build with timechart command :

source="airports.csv" |timechart sum(number) as sum by City

The same code search with xyseries command is :

 source="airports.csv" |stats sum(number) as sum by _time , City
         | eval s1="Aaa" | makemv s1 | mvexpand s1
         | eval yval=case(s1=="Aaa",sum) 
         | eval series=City   | xyseries _time,series,yval    

Note that the code : convert timeformat="%a %b %d %Y" ctime(_time) AS c_time is used to change _time command format in the format which is almost like the _time format which appear when we use timechart command.
