With version 3.4.3, we introduced the Treemap widget. The intent of this widget is to give you another means of visualizing where your pain is coming from. In the screenshot below, we present both the Priorities by Product and the Treemap widget labeled “Priorities And Severities”.
Note the counts in the table of “Priorities by Product” at the top of the image; 94 in the Highest priority, 201 in the High priority and 100 in the Low priority. This same table is then visualized as a treemap showing not only the priorities, but within each priority, the classification of the bug’s severity (e.g. “enhancement” or “trivial”) and a hyperlink to each of the bugs in that combination of priority and severity. Note in the Treemap at the bottom that the counts for each priority appear in the header for that area of the map reprsenting the priority. Within each priority is a breakdown of bugs by their severity along with their counts. This is a quick and easy way to visualize where most of your issues reside.
When you mouseover a priority, the entire area of the map for that priority is highlighted. You can click on the header to open the priorities as a floating object should the bugs be too many to list within the constraints of the widget. You can also click on any given bug number to jump to that bug in Bugzilla.
The Treemap widget makes use of the jQuery Treemap plugin from Renato Formato and is Copyright © 2007-2008 Renato Formato renato at virgilio.it licensed under the MIT license.
