Features specific to the Results section

Export Results graphs

A click on the Export button makes it possible to export the selected graph data.


The Export wizard provides the following options:


A number of options are available to modify the properties of a graph:

A right-click on a graph gives access to the contextual Properties command to display the Graph Options box.


In the General tab, the Horizontal Axis Options group box makes it possible to change the way graphs are plotted using different data for the horizontal axis:

The following example is a curve showing the number of hits/sec. for a ramp-up load, using the number of Virtual Users as the horizontal axis data:

In the Time group box, the time scale of the x-axis for the graphs can be modified:

Delete all graphs

The Delete all existing graphs button in the Graphs tab toolbar removes all displayed graphs.

Compare test results
  1. Select the first test result, as described in Select a test result and plot the statistic for an element.
  2. Select the second test, and plot the same statistic on the same graph

Modify the scale factor

The scale factor can be edited for each plotted curve in the caption bar of the selected graph.

  1. Select the curve to edit in the graph caption bar.
  2. Edit the scale factor.
  3. Validate the value by hitting the ENTER key.
Use graph templates

During the application testing process, it may prove necessary to plot the same graphs for the project in order to check performance progress as the various changes are made to the application and server settings. The Templates tab allows saving time in plotting default graphs for average page response times, test throughput, and so on. Custom graph templates can be created too.

The templates are saved to the project. When a test result cannot be traced on a graph template in its entirety, the graph shows all the statistics and monitors that can be plotted. A case in point is where the template includes a statistic for a page not played during the test.

  1. Create a graph the normal way (select the statistics or monitors, colors, etc.).
  2. Click the Templates tab.
  3. Select a custom template group, or create a new group by right-clicking on the Custom templates node.
  4. Add the current graph to the template by right-clicking on the group node or by dragging and dropping it.
