Hi there, I've put together a small demo using our sample data:

In this example, I used the hour_of_day field to create Histogram bucket for the X-Axis. If this field isn't available in your data, you could look into creating a scripted field to extract the hour data from your time field.

Does this help?

I'm not 100% sure of why you're getting these results, but it's possible this is due to a bug that will fixed in the 6.5 release:


Yeah sorting it will most likely fix it, thanks for the help and I have marked your answer as the solution.
