Our RUM/Real User Monitoring capability has the ability to identify Network Grade. This makes it easier for you to know whether the Network is at the root-cause of a slow page.

The following line can be added to the Germain RUM’s init-script to modify the list of poor grades (i.e. what is considered a "poor network"):
settings.plugins.poorNetworkLocation.poorGrades = ['slow-2g', '2g', '3g'];
For example, ‘3g' can be removed so only '2g’ and below are considered poor.
The network is suited for small transfers only, such as text-only pages.
The network is suited for transfers of small images.
The network is suited for transfers of large assets, such as high resolution images, audio, and SD video.
The network is suited for HD video, real-time video, etc.
Type: [Browser:Poor Network]
Value: [DownlinkMbps] - The values of '
3g', and '
4g' are determined using observed round-trip times and downlink values.
Network can also be monitored via a Germain Engine. More details here.
