HTTP Full Web Page Sensor discrepancy between engines



When using IE as the browser engine, I get a load time of about 6 seconds for the site I am monitoring.

However, when using Chromium of Phantom/JS as the engine, my load time is 70 ms.

After some packet captures, it appears that Chromium and Phantom do not follow the redirects and only report back on the initial request.

Can this be changed so that the full page is loaded just like when using the IE engine?

actually it's the other way round. The IE engine doesn't follows redirects and Chromium should do so.

Could you please open a support ticket by sending a mail to [email protected] and give us an example which Url you are monitoring.
