Custom Dashboards: Open Beta

We're thrilled to open our custom dashboards beta to all customers. To get started, head over to the custom dashboard docs.

Native Custom Dashboard

Collection of Web Vitals in Website Monitoring

Our JavaScript agent now automatically collects the core and extended Web Vitals for page loads! You can find these within the website dashboards, the website monitoring analyze features and within the page load view.

In order to properly collect these you might have to update your website monitoring snippet. This updated version will ensure that the JavaScript agent gets enabled earlier in the page load phase (technically before DOMContentLoaded). You can find the updated website monitoring snippet within the Configuration tab of the website dashboard.

Web Vitals is an initiative by Google to provide unified guidance for quality signals that are essential to delivering a great user experience on the web.

Site owners should not have to be performance gurus in order to understand the quality of experience they are delivering to their users. The Web Vitals initiative aims to simplify the landscape, and help sites focus on the metrics that matter most, the Core Web Vitals.

Web Vitals in the Page Load View
