XML output documentation


I’m wondering if you can point me to documentation or a thread that explains the XML fields?

For example, what is the difference between bytesIn and bytesInDoc or the difference between firstView and repeatView or what does avgRun indicate?


The fields are (mostly) documented here: http://www.webperformancecentral.com/wiki/WebPagetest/Page_Results_Fields

The avgRun field just tells you which run was closest to the average time.



Thanks, Pat.

What is the difference between a First View and a Repeat View? How are they used?

The testing basically goes:

  • Clear cache, cookies, DNS cache
  • Launch browser and run test (First View)
  • Exit Browser
  • Launch browser and run test (Repeat View)

Repeat view essentially shows you the difference when the browser is using cached content.
