CloudTest includes the ability to split or combine the data in some charts by one or more dimensions. The split/combine dimensions currently include location, domain, and clip. For example, a location or domain that is aggregated across multiple servers so it appears as a single line in a chart, you can now split it to create a line for each server.

Splits, and subsequent combines, are performed using the Split/Combine button that appears on widget title bars (shown below). Both domain and location can be split, where applicable.

If a chart can only be split by only one dimension, it is split by that dimension whenever its Split/Combine button is clicked, and its title bar then indicates the split (whether by Location, by Domain, or by Clip). Clicking the button a second time will re-combine the split dimensions.

 

Split by Location

Use the following instructions to split results that contain multi-location data. Location refers to the geographic location from which the load in tests is generated.

  1. Click the Split or Combine by Dimension button on the given widget’s title bar.
  2. The widget is selected and the Split drop-down menu appears. Select Split by Location.

As a result of the split by location, the chart above now displays location information split by color (as shown below). Additionally, the title bar now indicates "by Location."

To identify the color correspondence per location, click Legend to inspect color. Optionally, check or uncheck a series to toggle it.

Combine by Location

  1. For a selected widget that has been split by Location, click the Split or Combine by Dimension button on the given widget’s title bar.
  2. The Split drop-down menu appears. Select Combine by Location.

Once Combine by Location is selected, the widget’s title is restored to its original state (e.g. Error Count by Location becomes Error Count once again).

Split by Domain

Use the following instructions to split results that contain multi-domain data. Domain refers to the distinct hostname or IP address from which a message or set of message responses originate.

  1. Click the Split or Combine by Dimension button on the given widget’s title bar.

  1. The Split drop-down menu appears. Select Split by Domain.

As a result of the split by domain, the chart displays domain information split by color (as shown below). Additionally, the title bar now indicates "by Domain."

To identify the color correspondence per location, click Legend to inspect color. Optionally, check or uncheck a series to toggle it.

Combine by Domain

  1. For a selected widget that has been split by domain, click the Split or Combine by Dimension button on the given widget’s title bar.
  2. The Split drop-down menu appears. Select Combine by Domain.

Split by Clip

Use the following instructions to split results that contain multi-clip data. Clip refers to the distinct test clip within the test composition. 

  1. Click the Split or Combine by Dimension button on the given widget’s title bar.
  2. The Split drop-down menu appears. Select Split by Clip.

Combine by Clip
