for some time I wish for logarithmic netload scaling. I do heterogeneous tasks
on network, in which I do want to be able to determine the approximate current
netload in one look.
Linear is fine for "is it 5 Mbit/s or 15?", however using the same scaling on
the same device for the next task, it's impossible to distinguish 5Kbit/s from

Thus, I'd wish for a logarithmic scaling of the netload bar.
To allow this, the user will have to be able to set a minimum value as well,
providing a useable scaling. (Not having a scale like
|0.000001byte/s...........1kbit.10Mbit| below that log. minimum, the scale
could either be linear to 0 or not displayed. That could be a user choice, or,
if it's too complicated to implement, not implemented.

So my personal wish is: (each dot is a arbitrary but constant amount of pixels,
the numbers are the limits):

      lin           log

alternative, if you want to implement log, but not lin/log combined, I'd set it
like this:


I'd be happy if you like and implement my idea.
