Analyze how a resource performs over time
The aggregated resource waterfall widget takes the traditional web page waterfall concept and applies it to the data available from real user measurement (RUM). Rather than present absolute values for a single test, the aggregate resource waterfall shows the distribution of resource load times relative to page construction timers.
The x-axis shows the percentage of page load completion relative to the chosen timer, instead of the absolute time in seconds. This normalization of resource performance against variations in the overall page load allows mPulse to present resource timing data aggregated across all user sessions, while also reducing noise in the data from variable connection speeds, device types, and user location. The shape and position of the distributions tell you more about the resource performance and loading patterns, potentially across millions of page loads.
Any filters that you set in mPulse are recognized in the aggregated resource waterfall view, allowing direct comparison of waterfalls by browser, device type, or whether the visitor was a bot or not. Start with a 30 minute time window. Waterfall results usually takes several minutes to load.
Resource selections (HTML, CSS, script, image, font, XHR, unknown, text) are at the top of the widget and can be filtered by type.
This widget shows aggregate performance data by device type, page group, browser and country. The hierarchy is shown at the top of the widget, the current view is highlighted in a lighter color and the hierarchy can be re-arranged by clicking on the direction arrows next to the text.
