Getting Started

The GameBench Web Dashboard is an essential tool for storing, visualising and comparing test sessions. Although some degree of analysis is possible on the GameBench Android and desktop applications, we recommend that you use the Web Dashboard for all analysis of your test data.

Below you'll find instructions on how to log in and navigate the Web Dashboard. If you're looking for help with analysing test sessions, then please progress on to the next article: The Summary Pane

After logging in, you'll arrive at the Home tab, which contains a number of boxes and tabs that are designed to help you work quickly.

The Time Used box shows you much session time you (or your team, if you're a Premium user) have generated so far.

The Sessions box shows you the total number of sessions you have recorded.

The Apps box shows you the number of top apps you've tested, based on median frame rates across all sessions.

The Devices box shows you many different device models you've tested.

The Blog boxes contain recent GameBench articles. These are worth a look as they might provide hints and tips that assist with your own testing.
