OctoPerf's new UI - Analysis changes
This article is the last in a series of overviews of our new UI. You can find the others here:
This time we will dive into the changes we've made in the analysis.
The analysis page has remained mostly the same:
The main change here is that each report is assigned a unique number so that you can quickly differentiate them. This is especially useful for comparison reports since this allows you to see which reports they contain without opening them:
Configurable trend graph¶
The trend graph now displays statistics for the currently select graphs only:
Note that if you select a comparison report, all of its associated results will be displayed in the trend.
The report screen has a look and feel similar to the design screen:
- A tree on the left in order to navigate or interact with the report structure,
- A main panel to show the report or the report item being edited,
- Optional panels to display logs, properties and available report items.
The new report header can be pinned so that it remains visible while scrolling down to other items:
Report items tree¶
But it also allows you to select multiple items and interact with all of them through the right click menu, like the tree from the design page.
This way you can add new report items or mass remove some items.
When you add or edit a single report item, the metric selector screen will display:
Here you can select the metric and filters to be displayed on the graph. You will also see an overview of the resulting graph on top of the screen.
When you click the export button on top of the screen, OctoPerf will generate a PDF for you and provide you with a download link:
Report item export¶
And it is also possible to export the data behind every item using the items tree:
The comparison report, although quite similar has a better look and feel:
This post is the last one in our overview, which means our new UI is almost ready to be officially released. It's been a long journey since the very first beta version of the new UI. We are proud to see how it's evolved so far and curious to know where your feedbacks will take us in the future.
