Configuring reports

This section describes how to display SilkPerformer results in a report format.

Enabling percentiles

To report 90th percentile response times as well as averages, add this line to your fInitialize() function in SilkPerformer:

MeasureCalculatePercentiles("", MEASURE_TIMER_RESPONSETIME, FALSE,0.9, 67);

Using Silk TrueLog Explorer

When your performance test ends, all results go to the RecentLoadTest folder in your project directory. Rename this folder to give it a name that describes your performance test.

1.  Open Silk TrueLog Explorer, choose Results > Explore Time Series in SilkPerformer.

2.  In the left navigation pane of Silk TrueLog Explorer.

3.  Click the click here to add workload  link to add a load test. The project selection dialog box appears.

4.  Select the project you are working on, and then select the load test you want to report.

This loads a file with extension TSD.

An overview report appears. The report contains the average response times of the actions you measured and some charts of users, SilkPerformer transactions, kilobyte throughput, HTTP hits, and errors.

A section in the report shows information about each script, including timings for transactions (see the SilkPerformer transactions overview figure) and timings for individual measure starts and stops that you put in your script (see the SilkPerformer custom timers overview figure). Both sections include averages, execution counts, and standard deviations. The response times in these sections reflect only the measurement time range specified in the workload configuration.

In the "Transactions" section of each script report, Trans. ok[s] indicates that think times were included in the response time; {{Trans.(busy) ok[s] }} indicates think times were not included.

The "Custom timers" section of each script report shows the average response time. Percentiles are shown in the "Custom timers - percentile charts" section that follows the "Custom timers" section.

The Active Users chart shows how many users were ramped up at throughout the test. In the following figure, 400 users ramped up in about half an hour, and steady state time was about 32 minutes.

Other charts worth reviewing are throughput in kilobytes, hits, and transaction(busy) ok response time. The error chart shows HTTP errors and any AR System errors you scripted to catch.
