# why doesn't the y-axis have same distance

Hi,

I wrote a test script to display some data. Here is the script:

from bokeh.plotting import figure, output_file, show

x = [1, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, 200, 300]
y = [21939, 119904, 165837, 186567, 181159, 165289, 177935, 149031, 141843]

ymin = min(y)
ymax = max(y)

p = figure(
#tools=“save”, y_axis_type=“log”, y_range=[ymin, ymax], title=“test”,
tools=“save”, y_axis_type=“log”, title=“test”,
x_axis_label=‘Number of client’, y_axis_label=‘Requests per second’
)

output_file(“test.html”)

p.line(x, y, legend=“test”, line_color=“red”, line_width=2)
p.circle(x, y, size=6, legend=“test”, line_color=“red”, fill_color=“red”)

# show the results

show(p)

``

After the executing, I find the y-axis show:

5.000e+4
1.000e+5
1.500e+5

but distance between them in the chart are not same, how can I set them as fixed same distance, like x-axis?

Thanks,
Linbo

To be specific, you are currently using a log scale, which is why things "are not evenly spaced". On a log scale, it is decades that are evenly spaced, i.e. 10, 100, 1000 are all evenly spaced. If you want a linear scale, that is the default, so remove the y_axis_type="log" that you currently have.
