Description

The statistics from Bugzilla (bugs, regressions, contributions etc.) are currently manually created. Bugzilla provides sensible means at https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/chart.cgi to automate that process.

Steps involved:

  1. Identify required statistics together with development and QA (mentionin this topic during the ESC call might be a good idea)
  2. Identify who is generating statistics at the moment and if these can be automated (to avoid double work)
  3. Automate the creation of these statistics, possibly via the Sun 24 that Cloph will repurpose for this matter, or directly as Cronjob within the Bugzilla VM
  4. Document and saltify what has been done
  5. Establish monitoring of important parameters, values and thresholds to identify key issues in advance

History

#1 Updated by Bjoern Michaelsen over 3 years ago

Bugzillas "new charts" (reports->new charts) at least make data collection over time easy, although its a UI desaster and its own charts are mighty ugly:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/chart.cgi
Using it for data collection, and then have $something to nicely present the data in a sensible way without too much repeated manual work would be great.

Infra tries to provide a VM this week, but it depends on a couple of parameters
If you can work on this ticket in the productive instance, please do so

Bugzilla test VM should be up and running again, so you can proceed here
On a side note: Please be cautious of the disk space and make sure not tons of dumps are flying around that suck up space

How will this fit-in with the Dashboard tender?

We had a couple of QA folks working on a small stats project, but they've postponed that work for the moment until we have more information about how the dashboard might address some of these needs.

Bjoern: Based on what I've heard so far, this description is pretty close to the tender. Is one a superset, or are there some non-overlapping parts?

As it looks now, not much will happen on the dashboard tender until at least February. Thus anyone wanting to do bugzilla stats should just go ahead now -- dont block on this.

Ok. I'll let the interested parties know.

Moving to Cloph's pile, but un-milestoned yet - let's revisit next year if we still need this and who carries it out; so no action required from your side for the moment, Cloph

#16 Updated by Florian Effenberger almost 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Rejected

We didn't get a hand on this for a couple of reasons
Closing this one for the moment, as I think there will be an overlap with the Dashboard - let's re-open if there's still a need afterwards
