I'm having the exact opposite problem - most of my charts only display the interval between the min and max value - There seems to be no way to control it - which I agree is a mayor nuisance.
Can anyone help?
I got the following from Kevin Twomey from Solarwinds support - one of the few who's actually been able to produce some results on the issues we have.
For Orion 8.5.1 - maybe earlier version aswel - I don't know !
In the install directory, there is a file called
This file contains the Y axis definitions that will be used be the charts.
To change the custom poller chart:
Open this file, find the <CustomOidChart> section.
Change the <Rescalable> value to No (from Yes).
Under <YAxis>, change <ManualScale> from “None” to “Both”
Use the <ScaleMin> and <ScaleMax> values to set the minimum and maximum values on the charts
(this applies for all custom poller charts).
5. Restart the Solarwinds Orion NPM Com+ application.
6. Restart IIS.
It will take a few minutes before the cache is cleared,
but then they should start to see the new values.
If you only wants to set the minimum value, set the <ManualScale> value to “Min”.
For maximum values, use “Max”.
The same steps can be used for any of the charts in this file(min/Max/Average)
to set the values for the Y-Axis on the chart.Just a reminder, these values are global for all charts of this type
It doesnt work for all my custom charts for some reason though
I tried this solution, but the <CustomOIDChart> section is not in the listed file. I am running version 9.0.0 and am wondering if that section is no longer used. Was it replaced?
Being able to manually set the scales on the charts would be a wonderful thing to have.
