About the Report Panel

The Report panel of the load testing log contains several tabbed pages that describe the test run via various tables, graphs and charts. The Summary tab shows summary information on the test run. The test name and status (success, error, warning) are displayed at the top of the page. The other parts of the panel contain detailed information on the run.

The contents of most pages are organized into several expandable sections. Each section contains either graphs, tables or charts describing the appropriate testing metrics. If you use cloud machines to run your load tests, LoadComplete also collects statistics for these machines and then divides the load testing reports according to their location. For this purpose, it automatically adds the Chart by Region tabbed page to most of the graphs shown in the Report panel. For more information on this page, follow the links below to see the description of the desired graph.

Along with predefined graphs, LoadComplete results provide you with custom graphs that let you combine several metrics in one chart so that you can easily compare the selected metrics. To generate such custom graphs, use the Custom Charts page of the Report panel.

The sections below contain details on each tabbed page of the Report panel.

Summary Page

This page contains information about the test (the name, result, workload profiler) and information on the test run time (the start time, the end time and the test duration). It also contains the following values:

  • Time metrics (the average, minimum and maximum values) of traffic simulation: Time to First Byte, Time to Last Byte, Page Load Time, Scenario Completion Time, Transaction Completion Time.

  • A chart that represents results of simulating virtual users. The chart displays the number and percentage of virtual users that were simulated successfully as well as the number and percentage of users that failed to be simulated (due to errors) or were simulated with warnings. For more information on the chart and its settings, see Viewing Report Charts and Graphs.

    Note: To view the chart, Flash Player 8 or later for Windows Internet Explorer is required.
  • Information on the number of simulated requests:

    • Total requests - The total number of requests simulated by all virtual users during the test run.

    • Total errors and Total warnings - The number of the requests simulated with warnings and errors during the test run. You can view those warnings and errors in the Details panel of the log. To open the panel, click the View link in parentheses.

The page also includes sections that provide high-level information on the number of simulated virtual users (the Load Profile Graph expandable section) and it also contains detailed statistics on the requests sent to each server that was accessed during the test run (the Hosts expandable section).

For more information on the graphs and statistics shown on this page, see Summary Page of the Report Panel.

Pass / Fail Page

This page contains summary information on the requests simulated during load testing. It also provides charts that represent the results of loading pages and page resources.

For more information on this tabbed page and the information it contains, see Pass / Fail Page of the Report Panel.

Response Time Page

This page contains graphs that represent the changes of the load testing metrics during the test run:

For more information on these graphs and the actions you can perform over them, see Response Time Page of the Report Panel.

Infrastructure Page

This page contains graphs that represent the changes of the Request transfer speed and Response transfer speed metrics in time. To view the desired graph, expand the appropriate section and LoadComplete will display the needed graph along with the virtual users graph (the With Virtual Users tabbed page), or you can view this graph using scroll graph components (the Scroll chart tabbed page). For more information on working with scroll graphs, see Working With Scroll Graphs.

The page also contains the expandable Server Monitoring section. The section shows server-side metrics enabled on the Graphs page at runtime.

For more information on the Infrastructure page, see Infrastructure Page of the Report Panel

Top 10 Page

This page contains 10 slowest pages and page resources that were loaded during the test run. This information is very useful when you need to know why the test execution took a long time. You can also use this page to determine which website page or page resource of the tested server is the slowest.

For more information on the page and statistics shown on it, see Top 10 Page of the Report Panel.

Custom Charts Page

This page lets you create custom charts that will contain several predefined metrics so that you can compare them on one graph. For instance, you can command LoadComplete to show the Response Time metric along with the Request Transfer Speed metric on the same custom chart. This page allows showing any number of server metrics on one chart. It is really useful when you need to compare two metrics.

For more information on the page and statistics shown on it, see Custom Charts Page of the Report Panel.

Panel Location and Visibility

The Report panel is shown in the test results window. The panel is automatically activated after the test run is over or when you double-click the Report node in Project Explorer.

Panel Toolbar

The Report panel’s toolbar contains the following items:

  • Print - Lets you print load test results. For more information, see Printing Test Results.

  • Export to HTML - Lets you export load test results to an MHT or HTML file. For more information, see Exporting Load Test Report.

  • Export to PDF - Lets you export load test results to a PDF file. For more information, see Exporting Load Test Report.

  • Post issue to JIRA - Lets you create JIRA issues for tests directly from LoadComplete and attach the test results to them. For more information, see Posting Issues to JIRA.
