Nearly all graphs auto-scale to fit the data, scale will change. Exception is dBm since there is a sane range predefined.

Packets per channel per second, peak, over whatever the channel gathering time was, same as the other graphs. Channel gathering time is determined by hopping speed, etc, so can be highly variable. Graph is intended more for trending than for absolute graphing (use per-packet stats for this)
