Viewing page element responses - Legacy Reports

You can display the response times for individual page elements in reports, to determine which elements are the slowest.

About this task

Page element response times do not include client delay or connection time. Because page elements can be returned in parallel from the server under test, the page response time is not necessarily the sum of the page element response times. To determine how much time each page element contributes to the overall page response time, see Viewing page response time contributions.
Note: If you substitute an element of a page with a dataset column and use the Use the substituted URL in performance reprots check box, the Page Elements report shows all the dataset substitutions.


  1. Right-click any page response graphic (for instance, a bar in a bar chart).
  2. Select Display Page Element Responses. The ten slowest page element response times are listed.
  3. Right-click the page element to analyze, and select Display Response Time Breakdown Statistics. The response time breakdown report for that page element opens.
  4. To return to the original report, use the navigation information in the upper-left corner.
