Flood view

Seeing the overall metrics for one flood

The Flood view is very similar to the project view, but it only shows details about the flood that is selected.​​

A. The status of the flood is displayed in icon form. You can hover over the icon to see what it means. A flood can have the follow statuses:

  • Stopping (square) - The flood is in the process of stopping, and is waiting for the last responses or copying results to Flood.

  • Completed (check icon) - The flood has stopped.

  • Problem (triangle with an exclamation point) - An error was encountered during the flood.

B. The project name, flood name and flood number are now shown in the upper left.

C. Timeline is shown by default, and contains the graph as pictured in the screenshot above.

D. Logs shows the data written to files on the nodes and may contain important information used to debug errors.

The Logs tab is populated in real-time while a test is running, but you can also download the full logs.

E. The grids used in a flood are shown in a dropdown menu.​

All grids will be shown in this menu along with their identifying name ("hydrodynamic-blackburn" in this example) and the number of nodes in each grid. Clicking on the grid in this menu will show only information from that grid. This can be useful when wanting to compare, for example, the effect of geographic location of the grids on response time.

When more grids are used, an option to select "All Grids" will be displayed. You can select this option to see the test as a whole.

F. The flood options menu is to the right of the Grids dropdown menu.​

G. The list of transactions sits below the graph and shows all the transactions executed in that flood, along with each one's response time, throughput, and error rate. The transactions are sorted from highest response time to the lowest by default to highlight potential problem transactions.

Clicking on the > arrow to the right of each transaction will take you to the transaction detail view.​​
