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.
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:

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:
