## What is Scale or Scalability of Graphs?

Hi Guys,

Could some one please explain with the example on Scale or Scalability of graphs?

Let's take a Transaction Response Time graph Scale =1 and Scale =10.

What makes the difference between Scale=1 and Scale=10

Thanks,
Raj

From the Controller Guide: The scale of a measurement is the relationship between the y-axis and the graph's actual value. For example, a scale set at 1 indicates that the measurement's value is the value of the y-axis. If you select a scale of 10, you must divide the y-axis value by 10 to obtain the true value of the measurement.

It is basically used for display purpose. It enables to display more than one measurement on a common Y-axis. And also to display the measurement trend more clearly.

For example, if your values vary between 0.1 and 0.5, it makes more sense to multiple it by 10 (i.e. scale of 10), so that the variation is more clear
