Incorporate Speed Index metrics in the data point detail page

Incorporate Speed Index into the times reported for each data point...

Google and webpagetest.ord have started to use a measurement called Speed Index in their reporting.

Long story short, this is a method of measuring render time to the user based on what shows on their screen (video capture) as opposed to a particular element loading or the onload event. Speed Index, as I understand it, gives a much better idea of how the page performs from the user's perspective.

If this metric could be displayed between Render Time and Load Time, (here https://my.rigor.com/checks/10488/runs/862529159 )that would be awesome. In addition, alerting based on speed index thresholds would cut down greatly on false-positives.

I discussed this idea Melanie Crissy in a meeting today and wanted to add it to the suggestion box.

100% agree Austin. SpeedIndex is a critical metric we should be monitoring. our Engineering team is currently working on this.
