ObservePoint Applications: Page Performance
ObservePoint offers three primary solutions for those interested in measuring page performance:
- Page Summary Report
- Page Performance Details Custom Tag
- Google Lighthouse Integration
Page Summary Report
The Page Summary Report is included in every audit. The official definition of load time is: the time (in seconds) from the moment of initiating a first network request on a page to the moment of receiving a response for last collected network request. This helps you get a pulse for how long a page is taking to load all of its resources. Because it was designed primarily for troubleshooting tagging issues, e.g. users move on before tags load, it is not as comprehensive as other page performance solutions.

Page Performance Details Custom Tag
The Page Performance Details custom tag offers a much more granular view of page load metrics.
Some of the metrics it collects include:
- DNS timing
- Domain connection timing information
- Request and response timing information
- DOM content load
- Page load timing information
- Redirection timing information (if there is a redirect)
