  • Impact of the RUM script on your website
    You may already have a fair number of scripts on your site, and wanting to collect RUM data means adding another script to the pages of your site.

  • Real time data
    When someone visits your website, the data collected by the RUM script in your pages will be sent to us as soon as the page is done loading. Your data is then queued for processing, but seeing those pageviews in the RUM reports in your Uptrends account should usually be a matter of minutes. No need to wait until the next day to see any results. That said - while your reports will always show very recent data, our recommendation is to mainly use Real User Monitoring data as a tool for watching trends.
