Yardstick User Interface
-This interface provides a user to view the test result
-in table format and also values pinned on to a graph.
+This chapter describes how to generate HTML reports, used to view, store, share
+or publish test results in table and graph formats.
+The following layouts are available:
+* The compact HTML report layout is suitable for testcases producing a few
+ metrics over a short period of time. All metrics for all timestamps are
+ displayed in the data table and on the graph.
+* The dynamic HTML report layout consists of a wider data table, a graph, and
+ a tree that allows selecting the metrics to be displayed. This layout is
+ suitable for testcases, such as NSB ones, producing a lot of metrics over
+ a longer period of time.
+To generate the compact HTML report, run::
yardstick report generate <task-ID> <testcase-filename>
+To generate the dynamic HTML report, run::
+ yardstick report generate-nsb <task-ID> <testcase-filename>
