Description

Some graphs have data at much different scales, such as the quality graph's loss and latency, where detail can be lost on the smaller scale when the larger has a spike.

Adding a logarithmic option can help show detail with both in some cases, and would be nice to have.

It requires using absolute mode, so it could be a third option under style, for example:
  • Inverse
  • Absolute
  • Absolute Logarithmic

In the RRD code, it must set a lower limit > 0 (e.g. 0.001), and pass the --logarithmic option.

See the attached patch, which forces absolute mode and uses logarithmic scaling for the quality graph only.
