Priority Parameter - cherry - 01-25-2016 11:47 PM


Please clarify on priority parameter for a HTTP request under details section in waterfall view.

Priority parameter takes various value such as Verylow, low, medium, high, veryhigh etc. Based on which criteria the values are being set?

Please refer the sample result URL http://www.webpagetest.org/result/160125_YJ_7358945cd3a2ea4a1e77246e703a6d12/

Also provide us any detailed link regarding this topic.

Thanks in advance.

Those are Chrome's internal priorities that is uses for making the requests (to determine the order of request fetches). Other than content type and async/blocking they are not controllable by the site developer.
