Image Bandwidth Out

This report displays the outgoing bandwidth for images on the site. Website developers can use this report to identify images that could be compressed or reduced in size. IN addition, site owners can use this report to spot potential image "leechers" - those who steal images or link to images for use on their own websites. Note: Many image optimization software products and services are available online. In general, these can greatly reduce the size of images without sacrificing image quality.

Regarding "Severity" - this is a calculated field that is based on the impact of the measured result (e.g., page load time) multiplied by the number of pages affected, then normalized across the entire result set. In general, Severity can be used as a way of making responsible decisions about the impact your site is having on the server and to avoid making unnecessay optimizations. For example, pages with high load times that are accessed infrequently may have lower serverity than smaller pages that are hit much more often. In this case, there's no reasone to optimize the higher load time page as it has less impact on the server.

Note: This report can be added as a report item to a custom report. For more information on report items, refer to Understanding Report Items.
