Is there a way to export the visual progress chart data from a given run? I want to be able to get the data from that chart into a spreadsheet. I have been able to recreate a chart from a run by grabbing the XML data from the test, and using the data from the time and visually complete columns (columns RT and RV). But I am not sure if this is the correct data.
Also in a related question, I haven’t been able to get the XML from some tests. As I understand, you can get the XML from a test as follows:
But for some reason that doesn’t seem to work with each test.
If you pull the JSON response e.g. http://www.webpagetest.org/result/150911_8W_70fd03cac5fa3c6099b1e29f979eadf2/?f=json
You see a videoFrames array within each run’s data, this is the same data that’s plotted on that chart.
The XML data should also include the visual progress along with the frames: https://github.com/WPO-Foundation/webpagetest/blob/master/www/xmlResult.php#L314
Do you have an example where the XML was not available but the regular result was? It shouldn’t be possible because they both use the same underlying data.
Patrick - I thought I tried the URL yesterday and it gave a 404 error. Now it is ok - Although I admit I might have entered the wrong test ID - this URL works fine now. I will let you know though if I have any issues. Thanks
