Performance monitoring


Performance monitoring is a service we offer that helps us to gain insight into the performance characteristics of the app.

Key capabilities

We use performance monitoring to collect performance data from the app, and then review and analyze that data. Performance monitoring helps us understand where and when the performance of the app can be improved so that we can use that information to fix performance issues.

Automatically measure app startup time, HTTPS network requests, and more

As soon as the app goes live it starts automatically monitoring several critical aspects of performance. We log aspects like first contentful paint, ability for users to interact with the app, and more.

Gain insight into situations where app performance could be improved

Optimizing the performance of the app can be challenging when you don’t know exactly why it is falling short of user expectations. That’s why our performance monitoring lets you see performance metrics broken down by attributes, like country, device, app version, and OS level.

Customize monitoring for the app

In certain situations we can create custom traces to capture the app’s performance in specific situations, like when your users load a new screen or display a new interactive feature. And, we can create custom metrics to count events that we define (like cache hits) during those traces.

User data

The app’s performance monitoring does not permanently store any personally identifiable information (such as names, email addresses, or phone numbers). While monitoring HTTPS network requests, Performance Monitoring uses URLs (not including URL parameters) to build aggregated and anonymous URL patterns that are eventually persisted and shown in the Firebase console.
