Task #3530: [ndnrtc-oi] Dashboard design
[ndnrtc-oi] Design QoE dashboard
Need to design a dashboard that is easy to read and estimate test results.
Dashboard should include QoE metrics. One of the possible QoEs that can be included are:
- # of rebufferings
- # of crashes
- Latency estimation
- Average buffer size
- Times (in %) in each state (chase, adjust, fetch)
- ndncon CPU, memory usage
- NFD CPU, memory usage
Such a dashboard may be used to track results across multiple tests.

- Status changed from New to Closed
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
OI dashboards can be found here.
Grafana is used as an OI tool, InfluxDB is used as a time-series data storage.
Grafana is not designed for using it as an analysis tool for occasional test runs. It is designed as visualization&dig-and-discover tool for continuous metrics gathered from remote services. Consequently, I had to come up with some usage pattern in order to use Grafana with NDN-RTC large-scale testing.
- individual tests are combined into test-groups
- each test has a number and ID - date-time string
- test group is defined by tester, who launches test scripts;
- this is typically a string containing meaningful identificator for the tests, i.e. "version0.1.1-beta", "NFD-fixed-strategy-issue", etc.
- test id and test group attached to each metric as tags
Analyst searches for certain test group using "Test Sets Overview" dashboard:
- first, analyst must choose time period that covers time when tests were taken (otherwise, data will not be retrieved);
- second, analyst must choose value for the "Test group" variable from the drop-down list (if value is not there, reload the page);
- if nothing is visualized on the graph - make sure time interval is correct (it doesn't need to be exact though);
- once data appears on the graph, analyst should be able to see differently colored dots for each test runs within test set:
- from here - analyst should narrow down the time range on the graph that corresponds to the test she wants to see;
- once test data is narrowed (graph does not mean anything, it's just a visualization of the duration of the test), analyst must use hyperlink on top of the graph to jump to "Test Run Overview (NEW)" dashboard;
- from "Test Run Overview (NEW)" dashboard, analyst is able to jump to other dashboards using the same principle - hyperlinks next to the graphs' captions.
