Summary section

The summary at the top of the page allows for filtering based on the page’s data points and the selected timeframe and locations. Retried check runs do not influence this section; only the final results are considered.

Based on the user’s selection, the metrics in the summary will also be updated to show the most important numbers at a glance.

Monitoring results chart

The monitoring results chart shows a summary of the run results in the selected time period where each bar represents a part of that time period. You can change the time period in the summary section.

Hovering a bar in the chart will show the results of all check runs executed during that time. You can quickly filter the check run results in the right sidepanel by clicking a bar in the chart.

When retries are enabled, an additional icon highlights that the check result contains multiple check runs.

Monitoring results sidebar

On the right side you can view the check result broken down per check run and location for the selected time frame. If you select a bar in the monitoring results chart it will filter out the corresponding results in the sidebar. Click any result to navigate to the check results screen for detailed information about the check run.


Depending on the type of check, different performance metrics will be shown in the Performance section.

For Browser checks, several performance metrics are shown in separate charts:

  1. The total duration of the check run check overview browser session duration graph

  2. Load timings for the first page navigation check overview load timings graph

  3. A breakdown of different error types check overview errors graph

  4. An interactivity summary check overview interactivity graph

  5. A visual stability breakdown check overview visual stability graph

For API checks, a detailed response time breakdown is shown: check overview api performance graph

For Multistep checks, a response time breakdown is shown per step: check overview api performance graph

A performance comparison by location will also be included for both types of check: check overview location performance graph

The check result page will contain results from multiple locations when using parallel scheduling. Navigate between each location using the sidebar. Viewing multiple attempts from the dropdown

These include:

  1. The request performed

  2. Any assertions that were included in the check

  3. All data related to the request and its response, such as

    a. Response body

    b. Request & response headers

    c. Query params

    d. Check job log

  4. Timings, such as

    a. Wait

    b. DNS

    c. TCP

    d. First Byte

    e. Download

Multistep check results

Multistep check results are navigated using the tree on the left side of the screen. If you are running checks in parallel, first select the location you are interested in.

In the result tree the top node shows the check run log and the check run configuration. Both can be collapsed.

Any errors encountered can be viewed in the ‘Errors’ node.

Each Playwright request done is shown as a separate node under the test step in which it was performed. Selecting a request node opens the request details. Here you can view the request and response body, headers and any request parameters. A breakdown of the request timings is also available.

Currently, only requests done using the Playwright request are shown as nodes in the tree, requests done via e.g Axios or HTTPS are not.

In the request details you will also find the result of any assertion done as part of the corresponding test step.

Check results with retries

When checks are retried, a dropdown will indicate that the check result contains multiple check runs:

  1. The initial failed attempt
  2. The final result (which may have failed or succeeded)

When selecting a check run, all data and assets are available for inspection for each attempt.
