Why was this: http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/win_performance_results.html#graph discontinued? Isn't it possible to have some machine/s do performance testing once every month or so, or for releases at least, and display the results in a graph? Of course, I'm referring to performance aspects of all of tbird, firefox, seamonkey, sunbird, etc.
not web services
> not web services Ok, but not Thunderbird-specific either.
move to mozillamessaging?
This is an old bug/comment (2005): (In reply to comment #0) > Why was this: > > http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/win_performance_results.html#graph > > discontinued?

I guess at the time it was stopped once the developer left netscape. > Of course, I'm referring to performance aspects of all of tbird, firefox, > seamonkey, sunbird, etc. Firefox now have their own tests. SeaMonkey & Sunbird should be dealt with on their own (SeaMonkey needs a mix of FF & TB perf tests, Sunbird needs its own). For Thunderbird I'm not convinced having this bug around gives us any value or added drive. Given we have a general project goal (although not written down) of implementing Thunderbird performance tests, even having a "implement basic perf test structure" tracking bug isn't required because bug 462862 - startup tests for Thunderbird - does that for us. What I am thinking we should do is archive the page mentioned in comment 0 and its links and all the performance related stuff on www.mozilla.org/mailnews, and maybe put the archive on wiki.mozilla.org, maybe under https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Performance_Testing - I'd certainly like to keep the ideas and test data around somewhere, I'm just not convinced a bug is the place to do it. If we do want to keep this bug (or a variant), then I suggest we may want to consider a testing component for either MailNews Core or Thunderbird. Then we have a specific place to put bugs like these. Thoughts?
The archive site for deprecated mozilla.org content is http://www-archive.mozilla.org/. For the sake of consistency, I think it should go there. We can link to it from https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Performance_Testing. Can I go ahead and do this?
Please reopen if this is still relevant.
