Date/Time (Horizontal) Axis

All Process Analyst pens have a date/time axis, located at the top of the pane.

The date/time axis displays time using the current locale format specified in your computer date/time settings. If the millisecond component is necessary, it is appended to the end in the format "<xxx>ms." Since the local time zone is determined from the current computer settings, these settings needs to be configured accurately.

The date/time axis can also display data using the universal time coordinate (UTC) format. You can switch between local or UTC time as you like (see Configuring pen axes). If the current time is 10.00 p.m. UTC, in the Sydney (GMT+10) time-zone, local time will be 8.00p.m.

The date/time axis is divided into major and minor time intervals, which change dynamically depending upon the time span. In the illustration above, the major intervals are 1 minute apart, and the minor are 5 seconds apart.

Note the following:

By default, the date/time axis displays a time span of 10 minutes; the major intervals represent 5 minutes, and the minor intervals 30 seconds.
