Ubuntu Bug Statistics now Available as Graphs September 18, 2006Posted by Carthik in bugsquashing, ubuntu.
I put together some scripts from Sam Tygier and some of my own to generate graphs of the number of open/unconfirmed/critical etc bugs from the statistics available on Launchpad. I figured I’d spend some time on doing this since visualizing past performance and statistics must act as motivators for at least some bug triagers 🙂
Here’s an example graph that shows the number of open bugs over the last 24 hours:
More plots are available at the Ubuntu bugstats page.
The page has links to the raw data if anyone needs it. As time goes by I will add a graph showing the changes over longer periods of time (like months).
Thanks are due to Sam for giving me the script he used to parse the data from the launchpad pages. I just added a simple enough gnuplot script to plot the graphs. Any suggestions/comments etc are welcome as comments to this post. The Ubuntu-in loco team was kind enough to lend me space on their server – thank you guys!
