I have a field with a small set of possible text values.
I'd like to plot the value of that field over time.
As a first pass I used eval to convert the text values to numerical values. Then I was messing around with changing the labels when I saw on this documentation page: http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/4.1.7/Developer/CustomChartingConfig-AxisGrid#categoryaxes
That there was a "category" chart type. I'm curious how that sort of chart works and if I can use it to graph a string-state value.
I gave it a try, but it didn't seem to work. Does it work this way? Am I reading too much into the option?
