(However, it appears to me that the project doesn't separate the components of execution/tracking/report-generation/web-service, which makes it harder for other people to adopt.)
I am interested in both the functional and the UI requirements of such software. I hope to be able to choose an existing one based on the criteria so that I can use it in my project.
Right now, the only thing I can think of is that the Execution UI should be similar to a Unit Testing harness, but the Reporting UI should be totally different from the xUnit family of software. Webpages seem to be a better way to navigate through the results.
And, along with some minor ideas:
- There should be a tracking component to track performance changes at all levels
- However, the presentation layer should highlight only "relevant" performance changes, that is, performance drops in important areas that are serious enough to require developers' attention.
I am also interested in whether any of the advices from Edward Tufte can be applied here.
