Dashboards contain a filter toolbar.

To display or hide this filter toolbar, click the Toggle Dashboard Edit Mode button,  select the Filter tab, and change the Display filter toolbar checkbox.


Custom Timer Filtering

For domains with a custom timer defined, mPulse users can select the Filter tab in the dashboard or widget, and then choose the Timer attribute to select a custom timer from among other timers in the Value dropdown. Ensure that the correct domain is selected in the Filter tab before setting your timer.

Default Timer Attribute Values

A Navigation Timer measures a portion of the time from a page request to its completion. For example, the TCP Connection Time for the page request.

The following values are now available when the Filter tab, Timer attribute is selected on a dashboard. Note that if you have also added a custom timer that its name will appear in the Values dropdown (i.e. if the domain to which you added it is also the selected domain in this dashboard or widget). These attribute values also appear at the widget level for each widget that accepts a timer. The Navigation Timing and Timers and Metrics widgets have their own timer checkboxes (refer to the New Widgets section for more information about timing checkboxes in these widgets).

  • Page Load – Set a timer on the total page load (this includes frontend time, DOM loading, etc.).
  • DNS Resolution – Set a timer on the time to resolution (e.g. the time it takes to resolve a DNS name to its IP address)
  • TCP Connection – Set a timer on the transmission control protocol (TCP) connection in the session.
  • SSL Handshake – Set a timer on a Secure Sockets Layer handshake for apps that use authentication.
  • Time to First Byte – Set a timer on the first byte received in a session.
  • Front End Time – Set a timer on the front-end time on the device. Frontend time is client-side time such as the additional time it takes to fully render any content.
  • DOM Loading – Set a timer on the time to load the DOM (e.g. after the client has finished loading all window frames, objects, and images).
  • DOM Ready – Set a timer on the DOM ready status. This event represents the moment when the browser has fully processed the DOM structure of the HTML document.

Navigation timers are presented by default in the Navigation Timing widget and can be turned on optionally in the Timers and Metrics widget edit panel..
