Analyzing Silk Performer Test Results

Performance Explorer enables in-depth analysis of Silk Performer test results. The Analyze Results option downloads only selected results, in contrast to “Downloading result packages”. To assist you in analyzing the results of your optimization efforts, Performance Explorer even allows you to compare statistics from multiple test runs side-by-side in custom comparison reports.

The results of tests that are run using Silk Central can be automatically loaded into Performance Explorer through commands on the Runs page in the Tests area.

For full details on using Performance Explorer and integrating Silk Performer with Silk Central, refer to the Silk Performer documentation.

To open Silk Performer test results in Performance Explorer:

  1. In the menu, click Tests > Details View .
  2. Select the test you are interested in viewing.
  3. Click the Runs tab.
  4. Click Analyze Results in the Actions column of the test execution for which you want to download results. A File Download dialog box displays, showing you the name of the Performance Explorer command file, .sppecmd, that you are about to download.
  5. Click Open to open the results in Performance Explorer. Alternatively, you can click Save to save the results locally.
  6. If not already open in the background, Performance Explorer now opens, connected directly to your Silk Central installation, and fetches the results of the selected execution run.
    Note: To prepare for a custom comparison report that compares the results of multiple executions in a single report, you may download the results of additional executions from the Runs page. Additional execution results are displayed in the existing instance of Performance Explorer on the Silk Central ribbon. For additional details on custom comparison reports, refer to the Performance Explorer documentation.
