Completed Workload Tests and Completed Suites

Once you have set up a workload by configuring and starting a test, individually or as part of a suite, you can analyze that test run by navigating to its associated test result. When the workload test finishes, the test result appears on the Completed Workloads tab of the Completed/Running page.

Click the Completed Workload Tests link in the View Test Results section of the Home page to display a detailed view of all test results produced on your system. These results are displayed on the Completed Workloads tab of the Completed/Running page.

Click the Completed Suites link in the View Test Results section of the Home page to display the results for completed suites. These results are displayed on the Completed Suites tab of the Completed/Running page.

The following display is an example completed workloads test display. This display was accessed by clicking the Completed Workload Tests link on the Home page.

At the top of the page, and depending on what type of user you are, there are seven tabs that you can access.

The number associated with each tab refers to the number of entries associated with the tab. In the Running Workloads, Running Analysis, or Running Suites tabs, the number refers to the number of entities that are presently running on the system. In the Completed Workloads, Completed Analysis, and Completed Suites tabs, the number refers to the number of entities that have ever completed on the system.

  • Running Workloads. Displays a list of currently running workload tests. A currently running workload test is one that has entered the starting state and has not yet completed. The results displayed regardless of whether the workload test was started manually as a single test run, or automatically as part of a suite.

  • Completed Workloads. Displays a list of completed workload tests. The Finished state indicates the workload test ran to its expected completion. The Aborted by User state indicates that the workload test stopped prematurely, either by the user or due to errors.

  • Running Analysis. Displays a list of currently running analysis of workload data files that were imported for analysis using the Workload Data Importer (WDI).

  • Completed Analysis. Displays a list of completed analyses of workload data files.

  • Running Suites. Displays a list of currently running iteration and workload suites.

  • Completed Suites. Displays a list of completed iteration suites and workload suites. In each of these suites, all workload tests have completed.

  • Utilization (Admin). This option is only displayed and available if you are logged as a WorkloadWisdom administrator.

Displays a summary of Port Utilization, Total Number of Tests, Total Test Duration, and Total Port Hours for the past year, month, and week. This information tells administrators how much WorkloadWisdom is being used.

In the Port Utilization row, an entry of 0.0 indicates that no one is using WorkloadWisdom. A number of 100 indicates that WorkloadWisdom is being used continuously, and indicates effective, maximum use of the product.

There are some additional parameters available on the Completed/Running page to better qualify your results:

Use the drop-down menu to define the number of results entries to display. You can choose to display 10, 25, 50, or 100 entries at a time. The default is 25 entries.

Use the Collapse All or Expand All buttons to control the visibility of additional details for each row. These details include fields such as Description, Tags, Test Bed, and others, depending on the type of entity (Test Result, WorkloadData Import, Suite), that the row describes. You can edit some of these fields, for example, Description and Tags, by clicking the Name of the entity that you would like to drill down into, and then making changes on the displayed page.

Use the Show by User filter to show entries started by All Users or yourself.

Use the Delete button to delete the selected result entries. If you select multiple result entries simultaneously, the Delete Selected button activates. You can click the Delete Selected button to delete multiple result entries at once. The Delete Selected function is only available for Completed Workloads, Completed Suites, and Completed Analysis. If there in an associated trace file, the drop-down next to the Delete button activates and displays Delete Trace Files. Use Delete Trace Files to delete the trace files associated with the selected entries.

Use the Search box to search for a result entry by matching your search terms to the name of the Workload Test or Workload Suite. This search only searches the Description, Name, and Started Date fields. A result entry is considered a match if all your search terms are found in the name, regardless of ordering or capitalization. For example, if you entered “vdi workload”, then a result entry with the name “My VDI Workload” and a Result entry with the name “My Workload simulating VDI” would both appear.

Each results entry displays on a (multi-line) row in the output table. Use the checkbox to the left of each row to select the entry.

Descriptions of the column headings associated with each Results entry are:

  • Info. Controls the visibility of additional details for each row. These additional details include fields such as Description, Tags, Test Bed, and others, depending on the type of entity (Test Result, Workload Data Import, Suite), that the row describes. You can edit some of these fields, for example, Description and Tags, by clicking the Name of the entity you would like to drill down into, and making changes on the displayed page

  • Name. Displays the name and description of the Workload Test or Suite.

  • Duration. Displays the configured run duration. In the case of a suite, the duration is calculated by adding up the configured run duration of each workload test inside the suite.

  • Elapsed. Displays the elapsed runtime of the workload test or suite. There are some common cases when the elapsed run time displayed in this column is much shorter than the configured duration run displayed in the Duration column. One common case is if you abort the workload test or suite. This carries the state Aborted by User in the State column. Another common case is when the workload completed, what was configured to do in less time than the configured Duration time. When preconditioning a very large array, for example, you might set Duration to several days to be sure there is ample time for preconditioning and that the actual preconditioning completed in the configured duration time.

  • Started On. Timestamp of when the workload test or suite entered the starting state.

  • Finished On. Timestamp of when the workload test or suite entered the finished state. This is the column that is sorted by default, from most recent to least.

  • State. Current state of the workload test or suite. Values are: Finished, Aborted by User, Skipped, and Failed. Finished means that the workload test ran to its expected completion. Aborted by User means that the workload test was stopped prematurely either by a user or because do error. Skipped means that an added test encountered problems and was not run. Failed means that an error occurred.

  • Started By. Username of the person who started the workload test or suite.
