View simulation results

The results table provides information on how many tokens were completed for every element in the process as well as valuable insight into simulation outputs such as processing time, duration, wait time, lag and elapsed time.

The table is an interactive table that allows you to filter row data, show and hide columns and sort data in ascending or descending order.

To view the results:

  • On the Simulations page, click the simulation name or click and select View results.

Download results table

You can download the results of the simulation in CSV format to analyze the data in detail.

If you’ve applied filters to the table, the downloaded table will include any filters currently applied to the table.

To download:

  • In the table toolbar, click Filters and select Download table as CSV.

    This downloads the file to your device.

Heatmap

The heatmap is a visual tool that colors process elements based on the magnitude of a simulation output using a color scale that runs from hot (red) to cool (green). Hotter colors indicate higher values, cooler colors indicate lower values.

To view the heatmap:

  • Open the Heatmap tab at the bottom-left of the screen.

How to use the heatmap

Use the heatmap toolbar to select the output you want to visualize and the diagram (if the project contains multiple diagrams).

  1. Select an output.

    Click and select an output from the dropdown list.

    You can only visualize one output at a time.

  2. Change the diagram.

  3. View information on the output for each element.

    Click the element. A popup shows the value of the parameter you’ve chosen.

Zoom and pan the heatmap

To zoom:

  • Press the Ctrl key on your keyboard and rotate the mouse wheel up to zoom in or down to zoom out.

To pan:

  • Position the mouse pointer outside the heatmap. Press and hold the left mouse button and move the pointer.
