Grid Lines
X Divisions Divides the Trend Line View x-axis into number of sections. The section widths are hard-wired as follows:
  1. Steady State: 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 5000 iterations;
  2. Dynamic:
    • Seconds: 1, 5, 10, 20, 30 seconds
    • Minutes: 1, 5, 10, 20, 30 minutes
    • Hours: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 hours
    • Days: 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 28, 56 days.

Note: Section widths will always be rounded to the nearest logical time unit as presented above, so it is possible the number of sections being shown on the trend page does not match the number of X-divisions specified.

For Example, Current duration will display 2200 Iterations, X division is set to 5, the actual number of full sections shown will be 4.4. See image to the right.
