Page Time Taken

This report displays the average time taken for specific pages to load in the given timeframe. Website developers can use this report to identify the pages that need the most optimization with regards to page loading.

To optimize the time taken on the page, optimize the code to reduce database calls, improve the page flow to reduce the work the server has to do, or implement caching.

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.
