Full Version: Identify blocking or gap causing request
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I'm running tests against a site with a lot of third party requests.
I see that often the doc ready is very slow (65 secs)
I'm trying to identify which request is causing this slowness, but I don't see any blocking requests higher up in the waterfall.

I have read the blocking might be caused by javascript execution. How do I identify which request is running javascript causing the blockage?

I've add a partial screen shot of the waterfall view, I can add the rest if it is useful.
thanks!

Performance tab of Chrome developer tools is what I'd use to debug this further but from this waterfall https://www.webpagetest.org/result/18102...view_step1 it looks like

1. https://b-code.liadm.com/a-01db.min.js looks like a candidate for an initial investigation - notice how it's JS execution extends to onload

2. I'd be tempted to take a close look at Optimizely too and maybe consider moving it so it loads sooner
