It is fully autonomous – does not rely on external services and does not require any API keys, works on any type of hosting and in any type of environment – including staging, intranets or password protected sites.
By continuously monitoring user experience, Vibes can report:
- navigation performance KPIs per pages – like latency, redirections, browser caching hit rates, etc.;
- network timelines as if you were in the dev tools of your users’ browsers;
- resources details – like initi’ators, protocols, mime types, average sizes, etc.;
- Web Vitals: LCP, FID, CLS, FCP and TTFB.
It can segment all this data per:
- user type (anonymous vs. authenticated);
- channel (frontend vs. backend);
- country (requires the free IP Loc’ator plugin);
- device classes and types (requires the free Device Detector plugin).
Vibes ’supports multisite report delegation (see FAQ).
Vibes ’supports WP-CLI commands to:
- display (past or current) performances signals in console – see
wp help vibes tailfor details;
- toggle on/off main settings – see
