  • “network time” represents the breakdown of the times that were involved in the actual requesting of the page until the request got to the server that needs to server the page
  • “server time” represents the time it took for the server to respond once the request was received by the application on the server
  • “browser time” represents the time it took for the browser to load the DOM and finish the loading of the page after the response from the server was received

“Resource distribution” pie chart represents the distribution of the bytes received by the browser categorized by the type of the resources.

“Number of resources” pie chart represents the distribution of the number of resources received by the browser categorized by the type of the resources.

The table displays all the resources that were retrieved during the page load and includes the duration that it took for the resources to be retrieved which gives the Url owner an idea of which of the resources should be optimized and if the same resource is retrieved by mistake.

When we talk about 1000 clients load testing your website, we refer that every second 1000 users are making in parallel a request on your website or API.

It does not matter if your server can handle the 1000 requests done in parallel, every other second another 1000 requests are executed.

Here you can add headers to your requests so that when the load test clients will access your Website or API they will use the Request Headers added.

The header fields are transmitted after the request or response line, which is the first line of a message.
Header fields are colon-separated name-value pairs in clear-text string format.

Understanding the “Load Time” panel

  • In the “Load Time” panel the following information can be checked:
  • the “load time” represents the sum of network + server + browser time
  • the “avg. load time” represents the average load time based on all the tests that where done for that url


Understanding the “Analysis” panel

  • In the “Analysis” panel the following information can be checked:
  • “perf. score” represents the scoring that the url has received based on a few factors like compression of assets, minifying of the assets
  • “no. of requests” represents the total number of assets that were loaded during the page load in the browser (a detailed view can be seen in the “Requests” tab)
  • “page size” represents the total size of the loaded assets (JS , CSS, HTML and other)
  • “request size” represents the size of the request
  • “location” represents the location from which the request was done for measuring that time like Europe Ireland, US Northern Virginia…

  • In the “Last test run” panel the following information can be checked which refer to the last test run against the url:
  • “Load Time” represents the time a user experiences between the user navigates to the page until the page is fully loaded
  • “Latency Time” represents the time for the network latency (it does not include the unload time and the redirect time)
  • “DOM Time” represents the time it takes between DOM loading starts and DOM loading is complete
  • “Page Time” represents the time needed for the processing that is done on the client once the response is received from the server until the page is fully loaded
  • “Cache Time” represents the time it takes the user agent to check any relevant application caches
  • “DNS Time” represents the time needed for the domain name lookup for the current document ; if a persistent connection is used or the current document is retrieved from relevant application caches or local resources, the value returned will be zero
  • “Redirect Time” represents the time needed for any redirects done in case there are any HTTP redirects or equivalent when navigation, otherwise this time will be returned as zero
