Task Results Chart

Overview

The Task Results chart supplies a numerical or percentage account of previous task execution results, which can be one of four values; Success, Failure, Stopped or Aborted. Each execution result is color coded for easy identification. By default, this chart displays horizontal bars that represent the total number of occurrences of a specific execution result for a task. Bar lengths are proportional to the values that they represent. For instance, if Task1 ran successfully eight times, failed twice and aborted once, three separate bars would be displayed on the grid, each representing the number of occurrences for each execution result. Alternatively, this chart can return percentage values by enabling the Show Stacked control (normally disabled by default). Doing so will generate a single bar for each task with relevant execution results stacked (one above the other), each bar portion revealing result occurrences as percentage values (as shown below).
