Burndown Charts

Hi.  Relatively new Agile / JIRA user here.  I am having some trouble with the burndown chart for my current sprint.  The green line (which estimates time spent) on the chart for a sprint that we just completed is completely stagnant at the bottom of the graph.  What is it that actually controls this line? We updated estimate time remaining throughout the sprint, which I thought is what this line was supposed to represent.  Perhaps we did it incorrectly though. 


Any help appreciated.

In the estimation tab on the board configuration, have you got estimate or story points selected?
