Chart auto rescale

Hi,

I just started playing around with the netdata dashboard. But what already does bug me a bit is the auto rescaling of the charts when scrolling left and right or when switching on and off single graphs. It makes it a bit difficult to follow or compare certain values.

Is there a way to (temporarily) switch off the auto rescaling? I know it is an intrisic feature of the d3 library, but a little checkbox below the chart to switch it on and off would be very convenient.

Hello,

Maybe the Play/Pause button at the topbar next to the datetime picker is helpful to do what you are trying to do? You can stop all the charts at once.

Best,
J

Yes the pause button does stop the charts from updating.

But the one specific chart I am exploring still constantly rescales on the y-axis when switching on only one graph-line or when scrolling left and right through the data history. So the comparision constantly changes its baseline and makes it difficult for a human to read and compare properly.
