How the Agile charts are calculated?

Hi all!
I've looked through the Help, and it describes the Guide and other lines on the Charts in general terms. I'd like to know is how these are calculated.
For instance, is the Guide line calculated by the Story Point or Original Estimate fields that are populated on the stories assigned to the Version (sprint) in the filter BY THE DATE the sprint starts? No adjustments for estimates populated on Day 1 or when the task is taken up by a developer.
Is the Burndown based only on the Story Points, not including any Tasks that are not linked or sub-task to a Story?

Can you direct me to anything that gives more detail about how the Agile charts are calculated?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Serge

I believe the following blog post will give you a very comprehensive and detail explaination on this

However it will be quite a lengthy article, please do spend some extra time to read through it :)

Hi Daryl!

Yes, looks like that's exactly what I'm looking for.

Many thanks!
