These charts serve two purposes. The first is to satisfy one of the specific needs of the Bugzilla Anthropology Project which was to provide a view into patch review times. The second is to prove ElasticSearch can be used a performant data warehouse. More on the project and conclusions can be found at the Jan 2013 project summary. There is also my DashCon presentation( PPT)

Bug Counts

Bug Counts Open bug count over time, with open/close rates, and median age. Filter bugs by time range, components, and common program markups. This dashboard is meant as a rough-first-step to building something more process specific.
Bug Close Rate Counts bug closures, and requires writing Elasticsearch filters to limit view to desired category of bugs.

Patch Reviews

Reviews are broken see bug 1344253

Top 30 Reviewers
Requires VPN. Allow mixed content.
Shows the top reviewers from the past 6 weeks, the number of reviews they did, and the number in their queue right now. The original objective of this dashboard is to confirm some engineers have too many reviews. This dashboard is fine for identifying egregious differences, but poor for individual comparison; it seems personal style, team style, and code under review all impact the size and number of reviews done.
Time to First Incoming Review

Requires VPN. Allow mixed content.

Counts review requests and review completion rates. Also breaks down aggregate review age. The first review has been shown to take the longest, probably due to people synchronization issues. Subsequent reviews were almost instantaneous, so we exclude them. This dashboard is not good for fine grained comparison of teams because the nature of the bugs, and the process used, is often too different. The response time INCLUDES WEEKENDS.
Incoming Review by Individual
Requires VPN. Allow mixed content.
Top reviewers, but this time with some breakdown by week and component. Interesting, but not actionable.
Incoming Reviews

Requires VPN. Allow mixed content.

Statistics for all reviews. Subsequent reviews of a bug happen much faster than the first. Maybe the fast review speed is an administrative anomaly; reviews are added after the fact, and marked as reviewed. Maybe, the requester and reviewer are working closely to remove the remaining nits.
Reviews Requested in the Past 18 weeks An attempt to better understand the aggregate response time; while treating "old" reviews (those over 18weeks), as something else entirely.

Engineering Dashboards

Dashboards for use by developers, or our own team

Neglected Oranges List of current, intermittent test failures, and have seen no bug activity in the past week.
Management Dashboard View of all bugs for a particular team, in priority order, and categorized to help understand scope. This prototype was designed in 2015 for the categories important to the JS team.

Release Management Dashboards

Release Management are responsible for quality, security, and stability.

Release Dashboard All outstanding bugs tracked by the Release Management
Release Uplifts Count the number of patches that have been uplifted to the Aurora and Beta branches.


Contributors Dashboard Engineering Productivity's list of contributor bugs that may benefit from some action on our part.

Project Dashboards and Burndown

These dashboards are for showing general project state and burndown.

Quantum Flow tiles
All components with Quantum Flow bugs (qf:p1), color-coded by age
Quantum Flow Burndown
Requires VPN. Allowed mixed content.
Quantum Flow bugs (qf:p1) over time, with projected complete date
Project Dashboard
Requires VPN. Allowed mixed content.
Lists assigned bugs, patches in review, and patches awaiting landing
Burndown Prediction
Requires VPN. Allowed mixed content.
Uses average new bug rate, and average close rate to estimate the time it takes

to close all bugs in the given category. Compares to close rates necessary to meet due date

Final Burndown Dashboard
Requires VPN. Allowed mixed content.
Basic burndown chart. Showing current bugs over time compared to ideal (linear) burndown
