Efficiency: Timing overview

This panel focuses on time to first attention and time to close tickets. The main goal here is finding out whether we are attending tickets early and solving them in a reasonable time.


  • Average Time to Attend and Close Tickets bar chart compares the difference in average between first attention and closing time of tickets created in a given time frame. Ideal case would be low values for both, which means contributors are attended soon and tickets are closed in a reasonable time. Worst case would be having long bars for both, which means customers have to wait a long time to get our first attention and also closing time is of course longer than desired. Trends in bar chart give an idea about where are we going to.

  • Gauges show times in average and median to complement bar chart with a more general view. Despite we aren’t able to provide magic numbers that works for all projects, gauges provide some tentative numbers that can be used as a reference:
    • Time to First Attention: 1 day seems a reasonable time for a quick reply. Between 1 and 3 days is not that bad, while more than three days could be seen as too long for a first reply.
    • Time to Close: in this case one week would be a very good term for solving a ticket, up to a month could still be reasonable for complex issues, but more than that is usually too long for most issues.
  • Repositories on the right hand side provides a quick glance on how general numbers apply to particular repositories. It also allows to filter by repository in case we may want to specifically analyze its timing.

In addition to Kibana filters and search box on top, filtering by Data Source, Organization and/or Project is allowed by using the top left corner widget. Notice top filters in blue color are used for filtering in closed tickets and red one is used for filtering out bots.
