    Chart style

    • You can use a Summary chart to view the statistics on how the charted data varies over time, including details on average, maximum, and minimum values. The percentile range (10% to 90%) shows the spread that contains 80% of all values in the chart.
    • You can use a Histogram to sort data into ranges of values. The horizontal axis shows the distribution of data across those ranges. The vertical axis shows the number of items in each range. (A current data histogram displays the most recent data collected; a trend histogram displays an average of the data collected over the available history of the chart.)
    • Any charts under the Other views heading (as in the Sample item here) are specific to individual Spotlight applications.
    • Some charts that show task or status data may be drawn as Gantt charts. These are custom-coded charts and cannot be displayed in other styles.
