Summary0000554: Unable to queue bump cycles in bench test tab
DescriptionThe value that the add cycles button uses is greyed out and unable to be changed until the test is running. This makes it impossible to queue an appropriate value in advance, and impossible to use an appropriate value if the initial time frame is sufficiently short.
TagsNo tags attached.

Bumping infers an ALREADY RUNNING test (As per your original documentation). Hence the control is and should be greyed out until such a test is actually running. I don't understand your statement "This makes it impossible to queue an appropriate value in advance". You should choose appropriate settings in the benchtest config such that your test runs for the intended timeframe or longer, as you can always stop it.

I don't mind it being assigned to me, but it's staying open. You should be able to adjust the value in advance such that you can start bumping it immediately after it starts running with a desired quantity (as opposed to the default quantity). This can be part of the patch, I guess, no biggy.

So you want the allowed cycles settable but the bump button will still have to remain greyed until such time as a test is running. I think that's non-intuitive and will confuse the end-user making them wonder why they can set some value but not make it take effect. I think the current design makes more sense.

That's exactly right, yes. I see your point of view, however it's a test tool, functionality comes first to me. This is what is known as a "disagreement" which is OK in FOSS. Don't feel the need to comply, I'm capable.
