I can imagine many scenarios which is similar to mine:

For instance if we want to count the number of emails passing through the 
How would you have 1.5 email represented on a graph? You always know that 1 
or 2.
If there are only few values entered and the maximum count is 2 it would be 
better to
remove some of the horizontal lines on the graph and just print out the 
lines with round numbers.

Another example is like the following:

It shows the number of processes in the system. In this case is prints the 
numbers on the y-axis like I want.

How would I do that?

The idea is to getting then out on a graph, not storing them.

Thanks in advance.
