The vertical axis of the graphs produced by the System Load Indicator appear to scale automatically to the range of the currently displayed data. This is confusing because it visually exaggerates values during times of low CPU/network usage.

How can I set a fixed maximum value so that I know how to interpret the graphs?

I do not think you can do this with System Load Indicator. I suggest you either file a feature request on Launchpad against SLI or perhaps on Ubuntu brainstorm
