Set up a custom timer
You can define timers to identify key performance moments during a page load such as time to first image, time to sidebar load, and time to load content served from a specific third-party resource.
Before you begin
mPulse supports either client-side URL pattern matching defined as part of your app, or as a variable in your source code written as a boomerang plug-in.
You can define up to 10 custom timers for your web app configuration based on any measurable value in a page, using the following methods by browser:
- Navigation Timing (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer 9+, Opera, Android; experimental on Safari & iOS)
- Resource Timing defined with CSS Selector or XPath (Chrome only)
- Resource Timing defined with Resource URL pattern (Chrome and Internet Explorer 10+)
- URL Timing (Chrome and Internet Explorer 10+)
- Resource Groups (all browsers)
- In mPulse, click Central.
- In the left pane, select Apps.
- From the list, double-click your app, then click Timers.
Click the plus sign to add a custom
timer and open the Timers dialog.
- In the Name field, give the timer a name. Enter a descriptive comment about the timer if you want.
From the Value Source menu, choose the
method that you want to use to define the timer.
Note: For details on using these methods, see the links under Learn more.
- From the Include on menu, select which beacons you want the timer applied to.
- In the Indicator Color Ranges section, color ranges and time indicators are set for you. You can change these if you want or use the presets.
- Click OK to save your custom timer.
