Specific tick interval in axis units for the minor ticks. On a linear axis, if "auto", the minor tick interval is calculated as a fifth of the tickInterval. If undefined, minor ticks are not shown.

On logarithmic axes, the unit is the power of the value. For example, setting the minorTickInterval to 1 puts one tick on each of 0.1, 1, 10, 100 etc. Setting the minorTickInterval to 0.1 produces 9 ticks between 1 and 10, 10 and 100 etc.

If user settings dictate minor ticks to become too dense, they don't make sense, and will be ignored to prevent performance problems.
