What is the meaning of "Performance Results (Median Run)" exactly? - paulbntz - 03-12-2019 09:24 PM

Hi mates, I have been using webpagetest long time but I have a doubt regarding the summary Performance Results (Median Run).

I am talking about this test:

https://www.webpagetest.org/result/190312_5C_b037014825222ce54d2245347691646b/

In the summary inside the table we see the first view and the repeat view but the data i see is not the best of both results, so what is the meaning of median run?

The median run is just the median statistics metric?

-------------
Copy from Google:
The median is a simple measure of central tendency. To find the median, we arrange the observations in order from smallest to largest value. If there is an odd number of observations, the median is the middle value. If there is an even number of observations, the median is the average of the two middle values.

Thanks.
