Links on the left hand side allow to choose ​some often-used predefined periods ​(above the slider area) and move them back and forth in time (below the slider area). The dates on the right hand side actually work as links, popping up a calendar and allowing to set a specific start/end time.

 +The **fixed/​dynamic** link in the lower right hand corner has the following effects: 
 +  * controls whether the time period is kept constant when you change the start/end time in the calendar popup.  
 +  * when //fixed//, time moving controls (<< 6m 1m 7d 1d 12h 1h | 1h 12h 1d 7d 1m 6m >>) will move the slider, while not changing its size, whereas when //​dynamic//,​ the control used will enlarge the slider in the respective direction. 
 +  * when //fixed//, pressing the larger **<** and **>** buttons will move the slider, while not changing its size, whereas when //​dynamic//,​ **<** and **>** will enlarge the slider in the respective direction. The slider will move by the amount of its size, so, for example, if it is one month, it will move by a month; whereas the slider will enlarge by 1 day. 
 + 
 +Another way of controlling the displayed time is to highlight an area in the graph with the left mouse button. The graph will zoom into the highlighted area once you release the left mouse button.

 For very recent data a **single** line is drawn connecting each received value. The single line is drawn as long as there is at least one horizontal pixel available for one value. For very recent data a **single** line is drawn connecting each received value.

-Two factors influence whether history of trends is used:+Several ​factors influence whether history of trends is used:
  
   * longevity of item history. For example, item history can be kept for 14 days. In that case, any data older than the fourteen days will be coming from trends.   * longevity of item history.

If the amount of seconds to display in a horizontal graph pixel exceeds 3600/16, trend data are displayed (even if item history is still available for the same period).
  
 +  * if trends are disabled, item history is used for graph building - if available for that period. This is supported starting with Zabbix 2.2.1 (before, disabled trends would mean an empty graph for the period even if item history was available).
 +
 +== Absence of data ==
 +
 +For items with a regular update interval, nothing is displayed in the graph if item data are not collected.
 +
 +However, for trapper items, a straight line is drawn leading up to the first collected value and from the last collected value to the end of graph; the line is on the level of the first/last value respectively.
 +
 +== Switching to raw values ==
 +
 +A dropdown on the upper right allows to switch from the simple graph to the //​Values/​500 latest values// listings. This can be useful for viewing the numeric values making up the graph.
 +
 +The values represented here are raw, i.e. no units or postprocessing of values is used. Value mapping, however, is applied.
