Configuring WebPageTest

Sergey Chernyshev edited this page Mar 6, 2016 · 1 revision

If you are running a private instance of WebPageTest, you can configure it to send all test data to your private instance of Show Slow.

To do so, you have to set the following configuration parameters in /settings/settings.ini file

; showslow beacon
showslow_key=<your showslow API key>


  • showslow - base path to your Show Slow instance (required, enables the beacon)
  • beaconRate - (defaults to 100) percentage of tests to be sent to Show Slow instance (keep it at 100 to send all data)
  • showslow_key - (optional) will be used as a beacon key (if your Show Slow instance limits access to beacons)
