Select Test Runs to Trend Report Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to add performance test runs to the report.

To access
  1. On the My Performance Center navigation bar, select Runs & Analysis > Trending.

  2. On the Performance Trending page, in the Trend Reports grid, click the name of the report to open. The report opens as an additional tab on the My Performance Center Dashboard.

  3. On the <report name> Trend Report, select the Trend Overview tab, and click the Add runs to trend report button .

Important information
  • To add performance test runs to the trend report, there must be a data processor present in your project pool.

  • The process whereby Performance Center extracts the performance test data from Analysis is very labor intensive on the data processor, and may take anywhere from several minutes to over an hour. It is recommended that you use a machine dedicated for this purpose.

  • Performance Center extracts the performance test data from Analysis using a granularity of 16 seconds. This value might be different from the defined granularity in Analysis, and may lead to slight variations when comparing values between Analysis and Performance Center.
