If you continue to see the 'index' on the X axis instead of the PV meant to provide the X axis values, you need to check the configuration of the XYGraph.

The "Trace" needs both an "X PV" and a "Y PV". The "Buffer Size" needs to match the size of those two. "Concatenate Data" = "No". "Plot Mode"="Plot last n pts."
