Details

(Whiteboard: perfherder-docs)

perfherder compare mentions it needs more data, but it isn't clear on what that really means and how to do it.

It makes sense to retrigger or get more data for your try push, but the base revision that you compare to (many times on m-c) needs more data and that part is easy to get confused.

This could be a simple text change in the UI- maybe a more comprehensive docs section as well.

perfherder compare mentions it needs more data, but it isn't clear on what that really means and how to do it.

This bug requires the 'Retrigger' button from bug 1202718 & its functionality. It will address the above issue nicely.

What's left here is decide on a better definition of the docs.

  • do we need more than one?
  • if yes, where should we place them?
