Edit a Page Load Monitor


Page Load Monitors are essential for measuring the speed metrics for pages on your website. In RapidSpike you can customise an existing Page Load monitor for your site. This could include pausing your monitor, changing the interval or region, deleting the monitor or a number of advanced options.

Where to find Page Load Settings in RapidSpike

To access Page Load Monitor Settings, navigate to Settings > Websites, Pages, User Journeys & Sitemaps. Find the Page Load monitor you wish to edit and click on Settings.

You may also access this directly from the Page Load Monitor itself by clicking on Options and Edit > Edit Page Load Monitor

Changing the Interval & Region for your Page Load Monitor

In the Page Load Settings – Interval and Region tab, you may alter how frequently the page load monitor runs. You can also add or remove test regions. When making changes, you can see how many credits are required for the monitor compared to how many are available.

Page load monitors are set by default to run every 30 minutes.


Critical pages – 10 minutes

Non-critical pages – 30 minutes to 1 hour
