Performance KPIs allows to you to track and trend key metrics over time, providing insights into business-relevant metrics about your site and it's performance.
In Rigor, every Real Browser check has a Performance KPIs report, which can be used to compare a variety of metrics from multiple pages. The data powering this report is fully accessible via our API.
To get to the Performance KPIs report, click the link in the reports dropdown menu.
With the Performance KPIs report, you can:
- Compare data for multiple KPIs from a single page or from the check as a whole
- Compare data for one KPI over multiple pages visited by a check
- See how a KPI trends over time, using aggregators like median, average, maximum, and minimum
Change the KPI displayed on the graph using the far-right dropdown filter.
Metrics are grouped by their type: timing, count, or size. If you view data for a single page, you can select any number of metrics from up to two categories.
Any page the check visits is listed in the page dropdown filter.
You can filter the data to show one or more pages, or click "Total" to see how the check performs as a whole. The Total series sums the data from all of the pages visited during a check run.
If your check has failed runs, those data points may not be representative of your site's typical performance. When viewing run-level data in the Performance KPIs report (select a timeframe less than or 24 hours), you can hide these failed runs using the exclude failures toggle button.
Note that your hourly and daily rollup data will always include data from failed runs. Learn more about how rollup data works here.
When viewing larger timeframes (greater than 24 hours), the Performance KPIs report will display hourly or daily rollup data.
By default, the median value for each rollup is displayed, but you can change the aggregation method using the dropdown filter.
You may want to change the aggregation method depending on the type of information you're looking for.
- Median and average values both provide good baselines for your performance, although median data is more resistant to outliers
- Maximum and minimum values can help you find outliers in your data that indicate poor performance or broken functionality
Share links and Image Exports
After you configure the chart to view the KPIs you care about, you can share the report in two ways:
- Copy and paste the URL from your browser to share with any Rigor user. The graph will load for that user with the same timeframe, pages, and metrics you have selected.
- Export an image of the chart by clicking on the image export button. This is useful if you want to share this data with someone without a Rigor login.
You can get more detail about the pages your check visits in the Page Detail table below the chart.
The "first seen" timestamp indicates when Rigor first began collecting data for that URL, and the "last seen" timestamp is when your check last visited that URL. These timestamps can be helpful to track down data if your check configuration changes and you begin monitoring new pages.
