Item load times

The requests and responses play a major part in determining the overall performance. In order to review them well, they are color coded as listed below:

  • Green: < 500ms
  • Yellow: 500-1000ms
  • Red: > 1000ms

You need to look for the item load times marked as red as it is something that needs to be optimized in most cases.

In order to test the item load times, you should clear the browser cache after going to the page and clicking on Start again. This will give you a fresh reading and it can be compared to the earlier result to determine which among them is cached by the browser.
