Description of problem:
Trying to do a bar chart gave me a picture with only distributed numbers in the
chart. No bars as far as I could see. And I don't understand what the numbers
would mean, the whole thing seems broken.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try the graphical report
2.Select component on vertical axis
3.Select resolution on horizontal axis
4.Select format "bar chart"
5.Select "plot data sets" individually
6.Select bugs with reporter firstname.lastname@example.org
Actual Results: The resulting picture is enclosed.

The resulting report
Problem is with resolution I would imagine. Please try this with a smaller list
of components and see if the bars become visible properly. Looks like it is
trying to squeeze alot of info into a small area. The resolution is hard coded
and would need to be changed upstream in the mainline Bugzilla code.
Is the URL still https://bugzilla.redhat.com/rh-bugzilla-beta3/ ?
I've tried to reach it a few times during the weekend. (Because a comment from
you on the 26:th which seems to have been removed again.) But only got error
messages back. I'm not sure if it has been the same message all times, but
right now it says:
Bugzilla is currently broken. Please try again later. If the problem persists,
please contact email@example.com. The error you should quote is: FATAL 1: Database

Oops. Sorry it is now https://bugzilla.redhat.com/rh-bugzilla-rc2.
Yes, that worked better. And fter stripping down to just 9 packages, I could
see the bars.
If possible, I think it would be nice with some kind of warning about this in
the bugzilla interface. If the warning comes up only when applicable, only
when I have choosen too many packages, that would of course be best. It wasn't
obvious to me I was choosing too many packages, and somebody else might make the
But in any case, your assumption about the cause of the problem seems to have
This should actually be reported in the upstream Bugzilla tree since the person
who originally re-wrote the new charting tool, may have not realized the effect
when alot of components are chosen. I have filed a bug at bugzilla.mozilla.org
with this info so please follow along there.
So this is a standard function of Bugzilla! That was new to me. (I'll have to
check if we have that at our installation at work! :-)
I'm CC:ing myself on the mozilla.org version.
