Browser Tests with APM


Browser tests with APM connect synthetics tests with your backend traces.

Test results

Test results are accessed from the Step Results section on your browser test’s status page.


The Errors panel shows the name of the error, description, type (js/network), and status (network status code).

The type of error is logged during interaction with the page. It corresponds to the errors collected between the time the page is opened and the time interaction with that page is realized.

The maximum number of errors that can be displayed is 8, for example 2 network + 6 js.


A resource corresponds to the combination of requests and assets. The Resources panel shows:

ResourceThe URL of the resource
TypeThe type of resource (HTML, CSS, Image, Javascript, XHR, Other)
DurationThe time needed to perform the request
% Total TimeThe resource duration over the total interaction time
SizeThe size of the request response

The maximum number of resources that can be displayed is 50. Typically, the resources with the longest duration (slowest to load) are displayed first.

Resources can be filtered by resource type. Also, a search can be performed over the displayed URLs.


The traces panel shows your traces associated with the browser synthetics test. The UI is similar to the APM Trace View except for the following difference.

One browser step can make multiple requests to different URLs/endpoints, which results in several associated traces (dependent on tracing and whitelisting setup). Use the dropdown to choose the trace to view.
