Hello all,

I have modified getlog.pl to graph 404 errors per interval using the Web
Service/Total Not Found Errors perfmon counter. The problem is this:
We have contracted an independent security firm to audit our systems
monthly.  The scan results in nearly 2000 404 errors.  This makes the axis
scale so much that a slight increase in 404s is not noticable.  I would like
to keep the axis reasonable enough to notice a small number of 404s, but I
also need to keep the maxbytes total high enough where I'd be able to see
huge bursts of 404s. Is it possible to force the axis  to be  something like


If not, Is there a way to keep the axis small, but still "graph" points
somewhere above bounds?  Then I could at least still see the line shooting
off the top of the graph...

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
