The Waterfall display can be controlled by adding query arguments to the
URL. For example, if your Waterfall is accessed via the URL
http://buildbot.example.org:8080, then you could add a
branch= argument (described below) by going to
http://buildbot.example.org:8080?branch=beta4 instead. Remember that
query arguments are separated from each other with ampersands, but they are
separated from the main URL with a question mark, so to add a
branch= and two builder= arguments, you would use
The last_time= argument is a unix timestamp (seconds since the
start of 1970) that will be used as an upper bound on the interval of events
displayed: nothing will be shown that is more recent than the given time.
When no argument is provided, all events up to and including the most recent
steps are included.
The first_time= argument provides the lower bound. No events will
be displayed that occurred before this timestamp. Instead of providing
first_time=, you can provide show_time=: in this case,
first_time will be set equal to last_time minus
show_time. show_time overrides first_time.
The display normally shows the latest 200 events that occurred in the
given interval, where each timestamp on the left hand edge counts as a single
event. You can add a num_events= argument to override this this.
By passing show_events=true, you can add the "buildslave
attached", "buildslave detached", and "builder reconfigured" events that
appear in-between the actual builds.
Show non-Build events
If you provide one or more branch= arguments, the display will be
limited to builds that used one of the given branches. If no branch=
arguments are given, builds from all branches will be displayed.
By adding one or more builder= arguments, the display will be
limited to showing builds that ran on the given builders. This serves to
limit the display to the specific named columns. If no builder=
arguments are provided, all Builders will be displayed.
To view a Waterfall page with only a subset of Builders displayed, select
the Builders you are interested in here.
By adding one or more committer= arguments, the display will be
limited to showing builds that were started by the given committer. If no
committer= arguments are provided, all builds will be displayed.
To view a Waterfall page with only a subset of Builds displayed, select
the committers your are interested in here.
By adding the failures_only=true argument, the display will be limited
to showing builders that are currently failing. A builder is considered
failing if the last finished build was not successful, a step in the current
build(s) failed, or if the builder is offline.
Show failures only
Adding a reload= argument will cause the page to automatically
reload itself after that many seconds.
