Using Dashboard to Deploy and Backtest Strategies - Part 5


You can use the Strategy Performance page in Dashboard to analyze the performance of your Hummingbot strategies and scripts.

The images below utilize this SQLite database file (as described in this video): bot_battle.sqlite.

Upload Data

First, import your trading data by uploading the SQLite database file associated with your trading strategy.

  1. Locate the SQLite Database File: Navigate to the /data folder of your Hummingbot instance. Here, you'll find the SQLite database file named after your trading strategy. For instance, in the provided screenshot, the strategy's name appears to be bot_battle, hence the file bot_battle.sqlite.

  2. Upload the Database File: Drag and drop the SQLite database file into the designated area in the Hummingbot Dashboard. Alternatively, click on "Browse files" to manually search for and select the SQLite database file from your computer.

  3. File Confirmation: After successfully uploading, you'll see a confirmation message stating "File uploaded and saved successfully!".

  4. Select Database: Once uploaded, select the database file from the dropdown menu (e.g., bot_battle.sqlite) to begin analyzing the performance of your trading strategy.


Ensure the database file size does not exceed 1GB.

Continue with the next steps in the Hummingbot Dashboard to dive deeper into your strategy's performance metrics and insights.
