you must use it in this form

rqt_plot /topic1/field1

To graph multiple fields of a message:

rqt_plot /topic1/field1:field2:field3

To graph the data all on the same plot:

$ rqt_plot /topic1/field1,/topic2/field2

so, how to find the field name?

use "$rosmsg show msg_name" or use "$rostopic echo topic_name " to see diffrent fields of msg
