Interactive reports: getting a good grip on things

ByteBlower reports contain a lot of information. It may be difficult to interpret the graphs, especially in the case of large tests. Some plots appear to be stacked right over each other, hiding crucial info.

While we can't make your screen any larger, we can help you identify the events that matter.

This new release transforms all 6 results over time into interactive graphs. You can zoom in on them, hide plots you are not interested in and easily read the exact value at each point. An example of the new reports:

New tests use this interactive format by default, but we haven't forgotten your old results. Do you have an archived report you couldn't quite make sense of? You can regenerate it now in the report and inspect it in more depth.

Capture

When running tests, you often want a capture to investigate what is happening on your DUT/setup. You can now capture on the traffic ports through the GUI. Simply click to start the capture and all data is saved directly onto your hard drive; it's just a matter of opening Wireshark to start debugging. Below is an animated gif that shows how it's done:

Server Update Wizard

Updating your ByteBlower Server is now easier than ever! Even servers that have no direct connection with the internet can now be updated via the GUI. The new Server Update Wizard is available in the Server View. Here’s how it works:

Reports from a stopped CLT

Stopping the ByteBlower CLT used to be a tricky process. The only way to do it was through control-c, but this leaves you without a report. It is also annoying, especially when working with headless systems.
As of this release, you can now restart the ByteBlower-CLT with the regenerate option. The CLT will then regenerate the last report. It generates all available report types by default, but it also accepts a list of format types.

What's coming next?

The next version is already in the works and will be released in the next few months. Some of the new features you can expect:

  • Wi-Fi details (RSSI/BSSID/...) in API where available
  • JSON reports preview
