# What is the unit of tcp.time_delta in IO Graph

I created an IO graph and set AVG(tcp.time_delta) as the Y axis. What I expected is to show average time_delta in seconds in Y axis. But what I actually got is values such as 210^6 and 1.210^7 (see the image below).

Is it something with the unit of tcp.time_delta? Is the tcp.time_delta in second, millisecond or nanosecond by default? And how can I achieve my expected behavior to show Y axis in second?

Thanks a alot.

The unit of time is seconds, but that means this file of yours is exhibiting some preposterous TCP delays. The ^6, etc. are scientific notation - used for representing very large or very small numbers. Can you attach the trace file?

The trace lasted only minutes. I think there should not be time_delta as large as 10^6 seconds (which is 11 days). I'll attach the trace file later.
