Monitoring of website loading time

Monitoring of website loading time

« back to feature list

A website that loads slowly not only discourages users but also has little chance of being ranked high in Google's search results.

It's worth monitoring the loading speed of your website to detect its possible slowdown and react as soon as possible.

How it works

At defined time intervals, our system, pretending to be a simple web browser, fully loads your website—along with all embedded graphics, styles and scripts. The total loading time is compared with the set limit—if it is exceeded, a failure is registered and notifications are sent.

In the check's history, you can display a "waterfall" graph showing the loading times of all components of the website. This allows you to easily detect bottlenecks. You can also download this data in the form of a HAR file, allowing for analysis using external tools.

Configuration

Setting up a test to monitor website's loading time simply involves defining a limit (in seconds), exceeding which will be treated as a failure.

You can also choose the frequency of monitoring—10, 30 or 60 minutes.

Additional information

The website loading time test, pretending to be a real browser, downloads all of the website's elements and executes JS scripts. This means that such visits are "seen" by traffic monitoring tools—such as Google Analytics.

You can easily exclude visits generated by the monitoring by setting a filter for the browser called "super monitoring" (UserAgent value).
