. The Command Data Report dialog box appears.
and save the report under a descriptive name, such as Command
Data--Passed and Failed Commands.
The next time you open a Command Data report, TestManager displays the
Command Data--Passed and Failed Commands report along with the default report.
Reporting on a Particular Command ID
The default Response vs. Time report can look confusing because it contains
information about every command ID. This information is useful for assessing trends
in the data. However, you might want to report on a particular command ID or a
small group of command IDs and display the report in a line histogram, which is
easier to read.
To report on a particular command ID and then display it as a line histogram, see
Command IDs:Reporting on a Particular Command ID in the TestManager Help Index.
Mapping Computer Resource Usage onto Response Time
Monitoring computer resources is essential in performance testing. If you have a
performance problem, you need to determine whether it is caused by a large number
of virtual testers or by a hardware bottleneck. The Response vs. Time report lets you
overlay computer resource statistics over response time. If your response time
increases, you can determine whether this was caused by a computer resource
TestManager must be set up to collect the information about computer resources
before you can report on them. When you run a suite, the Run Suite dialog box
appears, and you must select the
Monitor resources
check box.
To map computer resources onto response time:
Right-click on the graph of the Response vs. Time report, and then click
Changing a Graph's Appearance or Type
TestManager can display the Compare Performance, Performance, Response vs. Time,
and Command Status reports as both graphs and table-style reports. TestManager lets
you change the type of graph that appears and enhance its display.
