mPulse is built above the boomerang JavaScript library that collects web performance data from a user’s web browser and sends that back to the mPulse servers on a beacon. The simple definition of a beacon is that it is an HTTP(S) request with a ton of data included either as HTTP headers or as part of the Request’s Query String. Within the web performance community, this data is commonly called RUM or Real User Measurement data because it involves measuring the experience of real users. In this document, we will describe the various parameters we collect via the boomerang beacon as well as how they are mapped onto the raw datastore on S3 and the DSWB analysis tool in RedShift.

Top Level Fields

Top level fieldsQuery String ParamS3RedShiftExampleDescription
domainh.ddomaindomainRegistered domain or registered dev domain in mPulse of the page sending the beacon.
timestamptimestamptimestampServer timestamp when beacon arrived.
IPIP Addressremote_ipremote_ipIP Address of the end user or any proxy they might be using.
API Keyh.keykeykeymPulse API Key assigned to this domain.
HTTP Methodhttp_methodhttp_methodGET/POSTHTTP Request method used to send the beacon. This may not be useful for analysis. (For internal use only)
HTTP Versionhttp_versionhttp_version1.1, 1.0, 2.0HTTP Version used when sending the beacon. This may not be very useful for analysis. (For internal use only)
Beacon Referrerhttp_referrerhttp_referrer<url>URL of the page that sent the beacon. This may be blank depending on browser privacy settings.
Proxyproxy_addressproxy_addressIP address of the CDN provider that handled the edge connection for this beacon. This may not be very useful for analysis. (For internal use only)
Beacon Typert.startbeacon_typebeacon_typepage view, angularSpecifies whether this beacon was for a full page view, an XHR call, an Angular.js call, etc.
Page Grouph.pgpage_grouppage_groupHome, Orders, PDPPage Group for the page the beacon relates to. Page groups are defined in the mPulse App Config dialog.
A/B Test nameh.abab_testab_testIf the site uses A/B Testing, this variable specifies the test bucket the user was in when they sent the beacon.
Site/App Versionh.vsite_versionsite_version1.0, 2.5bFor mobile apps, this is the version of the app installed on the user’s device. For websites, site owners may use this to specify a release number for their site.
Filtered URLurlurlURL of page the beacon relates to after passing through all defined URL filters. If no filters are provided, this is the top level URL of the site.
WarningswarningswarningsWarnings added by the collector when parsing this beacon.
SPDYnt_spdyspdyspdySet to true if the page was served using SPDY.
SSLsslsslSet to true if the page was served using SSL.
IPv6ipv6ipv6Set to true if the beacon was sent using IPv6. This may not be very useful for analytics. (For internal user only)

Session

SessionQuery String ParamS3RedShiftExampleThe following fields are all subfields of the session structure in the S3 JSON
Session IDrt.siIDsession_id90d7eab1-f0b2-46fc-acbc-6f19bb583d29-nr6gdfSession ID generated by mPulse and stored in a cookie by Boomerang. The first five chunks are a UUID, while the last chunk is the base36 representation of the session start time (see below) based on the user’s browser’s clock.
Session Start Timert.ssstartsession_startSession start time represented as milliseconds since the epoch based on the user’s browser’s clock. This clock may not be in sync with the server clock, so only compare it with other browser timestamps.
Session Latest Timert.endlatestsession_latestThe timestamp of the current beacon based on the user’s browser’s clock. It is not the timestamp of the latest beacon in the session. To find out actual session duration, look at MAX(latest)-MIN(start) across all beacons grouped by session ID
Session Length in Pagesrt.slpagessession_pagesThe number of pages the user viewed in this session up to and including the current page, but not including any pages viewed after this page in the same session. To find out actual session length in pages, look at MAX(pages) across all beacons grouped by session ID. If MAX(pages) == 1, then the session is considered a bounce.
Uncounted pagesrt.obooboPagessession_obopagesThe number of pages in the session for which we were unable to calculate a load time. We need this to get a closer estimate of the actual average load time of all pages in the session.
Total Load Timert.tttotalLoadTimesession_totalloadtimeThe sum of load times of all pages within the session where we calculated load time. The average load time of a session is MAX(totalLoadTime)/(MAX(pages)-MAX(oboPages)).
Unload flagrt.quitisUnloadsession_isunload(presence indicates true, absense indicates false)This field specifies if the beacon was part of the unload event of the page or not. Unload beacons give us a better idea of how long a session actually lasted.

Custom Timers

Query String ParamS3RedShiftExampleDescription
custom0 - 9custom0 - custom9timers_custom[0-9]Custom Timers are configured via the mPulse App config dialog and may be based on a JavaScript variable, Navigation Timing, Resource Timing or User Timing. On the beacon, these are part of t_other

User Defined Timers

You may also add your own timers by calling BOOMR.plugins.RT.setTimer from JavaScript. Note that we have no control over these timers. Every custom timer also contains a corresponding _st (eg: custom0_st) that specifies the timestamp when the timer started. This is used to render it on a waterfall.

In the S3 logs, these metrics are all numerically indexed.
cmet.Metric9_Name9custom_metrics_9Metric values are always numeric. Currency values are always in the lowest unit (eg, ¢ rather than $). If a decimal place is included, then the value is multiplied by 100 to get the actual currency value.
