chart config.json

The file chart_config.json is defined for each test. This file controls how charts are drawn, in the Jenkins interface for the test it is associated with.

schema [edit section]

chart_config.json holds a single object, with attribute pairs describing values for the configuration of the charts for a test. The following pairs are supported:
  • chart_type - this indicates the type of chart to present in the Jenkins interface for a test job
    • It's value must be one of:
      • measure_plot
      • testcase_table
      • testset_summary_table
      • measure_table
  • match_board - if true, this indicates that a job page in Jenkins should only display the results for boards that match the job.
    • By default, Fuego displays the results for all boards on a job page for a test. This is to allow users to compare results between boards. However, it is often desirable to only show the data for a single board (the one that the job actually refers to).
    • possible values are:
      • true
      • false

  • measures - this is a list of measures for which plots will be drawn
    • Each measure is specified by it's tguid, which must be specified in full (see Fuego naming rules)
    • If no measures are listed in the chart_config.json file, all the measures produced by the test will be plotted.

The purpose of the "measures" field is to limit the charting to only a few important, or characteristic, measures. Some Benchmark tests save many results, and the user may want to focus on only a few measures that they are specifically interested in.

Here is an example, from the test Benchmark.cyclictest:

        "chart_type": "measure_plot",
        "measures": ["default.latencies.max_latency",

Defaults [edit section]

If a test has no chart_config.json, then default values are used, as follows:
  • For Benchmark tests, create a measure_plot for all measures found in any run of that test.
    • Each measure_plot has one measure, shown with values for all boards that have had that test run.
    • The value and reference value (threshold) for each measure are plotted relative to each run of the test (by Jenkins build number).
  • For Functional tests, create a testcase table for each board.
    • Each testcase table has the result status for each result, and a set of summary lines at the bottom of the table, for each run of the test (by Jenkins build number)
  • For Functional.LTP, create a testset_summary_table for each board
    • Summary counts of pass/fail/error/skip status are shown for each testset (collection of test cases) for each run.

Planned features [edit section]

Additional features are planned for future releases of Fuego, including the following:
  • additional chart_types:
    • testset_summary_plots - a plot of summary data by test set
  • control over measure grouping:
    • the ability to place multiple measures in the same plot
  • control over board grouping:
    • the ability to only show a single board, or specific groups of boards, in single plots
  • control over header data
    • the ability to customize the meta-data placed in table headers
