I tested the interaction timeline on test.wikipedia for some of my own test accounts and IP addresses (incl. IPv6). It returned the correct revisions (compared to the revision history on the wiki).

I understand we have had performance issues with this schema change. I tested a large date range on en.wikipedia. I had nothing to compare to, but the results returned in what I thought was a reasonable time. I assume the majority of query time will be querying the revision table rather than the new actor table.

I also compared a couple of revision diffs as they appear on the tool with how they appear on the wiki.

I also checked the "Share these results" returned the correct links to user pages/contrib logs, etc.
