According to Dynatrace documentation, visually complete " automatically times out 3 seconds after the Load event end triggers. All elements that are part of the page at the time Visually complete stops observing the page are used for the calculation. "
Question - there may be instances where content elements may render after the load event. If so, what happens if content continues to render more than 3 seconds after load event? My concern is that I have observed some instances where a page may not actually display all data 5-10 seconds after load. So if visually complete times out 3 seconds after the load event, then it seems that visually complete will underestimate the actual elements rendering.
I have not been able to test this in Dynatrace since there is no way to visualize events rendering after load. However, in using Google Dev Tools in Chrome, and running a filmstrip, I observed that some page elements did render up to 10 seconds after Load.
I am not sure if there is a way to adjust the timeout parameters - IN the documentation, it says "
vcitproperty to define the inactivity timeout.
I am not sure if this means I can adjust the number to account for a page with script execution past the load event. For example, would setting this # to 10000ms be better? I am also wondering if readjusting the number has any negative side affects?
