RE: What do you want to see next?
Do you have a mechanism to test video? Can WPT start showing metrics like initial buffer time, startup time, rebuffering ratio etc?

RE: What do you want to see next?
It would be nice to see a nice visual chart / graphic of the same elements we see in a waterfall chart, eg connection time, dns lookup time, download time, etc. Maybe as a pie chart? Or is that already somewhere and I have just been missing it?

I wish there is Opera browser included in test website performance.

RE: What do you want to see next?
Agreed. I've been trying to set this up myself with Firefox and Firebug enabled, but it's proving to be a very frustrating experience.

What might prove to be a better solution is to run the result HAR through yslow and pagespeed and post to ShowSlow, instead of allowing the browser to do it. That way multiple browsers are all supported, and WPT controls which results are posted to SS.

Currently, when I do get something to autopost to SS, I get multiple entries for each WPT test that I run, rather than just an entry for the median result. It gets a little messy, since any outliers show up in SS and make it difficult to see trends over time.

We are working on automation of tests through WPT and it would be great if the WPT agents also ran the other tools & report those results to ShowSlow ...

It's not completely clear what you want to achieve - is your goal to just send one WebPageTest result back to ShowSlow when you run multiple tests?

RE: What do you want to see next?
It would be awesome for some kind of annotations to appear so that we can make notes on specific bars before sharing the waterfall with the others

Is there any "what-if" module to interact with the waterfall. I am looking for something similar to SPOF module. The use case I have is the following:

(a) Take a given waterfall and form a hypothesis that images are blocking the download and want to test it

(b) If I can have a way to "zero" out the download time of all the image bars and see how much the document complete line would be pulled in?

© Alternatively I want to remove the big pink bar and see what happens if I do NOT run any handlers associated with the specific event

You get the drift, right? I want to know what factors are the biggest bang for the buck.If image download/rendering does not affect onLoad then its probably a waste of time to optimize them

RE: What do you want to see next?
So the current behavior of WPT and ShowSlow is correct, IMO. The results displayed in SS reflect the 'median' result of all runs executed.

If I have enabled other performance tools in the active browser (YSlow, PageSpeed, and DT AJAX) and enabled upload to ShowSlow, I display each test run, even if it was not the 'median' value.

I'm able to work around this by setting up a 'dev' profile and encouraging my users to only execute a single test run on the 'dev' profile.

It would be awesome if WPT was aware of this additional monitoring and would manage the results from those additional tools, and the upload of those historical results to ShowSlow. I don't consider that a high priority, though.

RE: What do you want to see next?
Perhaps this already exists, but I couldn't find it. I'd like to be able to specify the response time of a domain, à la the SPOF test, but without complete domain failure. It would allow one to see the effect of a sluggish domain response time on a page's load. This would have to be an amount of time added to the real response time if the real response time is less than or equal to the desired "slow" time. Not sure what would be the right thing to do if the real time exceeds the "slow" time. Wink
