Releasing WBS Gantt-Chart for JIRA 9.0 shortly – 25% faster than previous versions

Hi, my name is Namiko, and I am in charge of testing for WBS Gantt-Chart for JIRA.

Whenever Ricksoft releases a new version of the application, we carry out a performance measurement test. In this case, the test consisted of 3,641 tasks, with five levels structured hierarchically, starting from “Project” as shown:

In this article, we share the test results for the development version of Version 9.0, due for release shortly.

Performance test conditions

The test conditions were as follows:

JIRA version Chrome version CPU Number of Tasks in Project
6.4.0 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit) Core i7-6600U CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.81 GHz 3,641

Each “task” represents an “issue” in JIRA. For each task, we tested all of the app’s custom field types, with three test scenarios as follows:

  1. Collapse all tasks when they are in expanded view;
  2. Expand all tasks when they are collapsed;
  3. Set tasks to expand by default each time they are brought in from JIRA.

Test results: Up to 25% faster with Version 9.0

Time required for V8.7.0.8 (Sec) Time required for V9.0 dev version (Sec) Improvement in time required (%)
Scenario 1 1st 12 9
2nd 9 8
3rd 9 8
Average 10.0 8.3 +17.0
Scenario 2 1st 25 19
2nd 24 19
3rd 25 18
Average 24.7 18.7 +24.3
Scenario 3 1st 32 30
2nd 32 26
3rd 32 26
Average 32.0 27.3 +14.7

For each scenario, the development version was faster than the current version (by approximately 15-25% on average). The screen capture below shows the measurement results from the second test for scenario 2. Server processing took 14.33 seconds.

We used a stopwatch, as shown in the picture, to measure the total time required for rendering to complete (time taken combined with browser processing time). The measurement in this instance is 19 seconds.
