Features

Here’s what you’ll get in each report

Performance metrics

We’ll generate a report with the most important metrics such as load time, time to first byte, and the number of network requests, just to name a few! You’ll also see the overall caching performance and other performance metrics that only your host can provide.

Actionable insights

In each report, our performance team will identify areas of opportunity to improve your site’s performance! With these insights, you’ll know exactly where improvements can be made and how you can tackle them. (No more guesswork!)

Historical trends

The performance dashboard allows you to view reports each month to track your site’s behavior over time! Easily compare the data to previous months to highlight troublesome patterns or unique problems affecting your sites' performance.

FAQ

As many of the answers as we could compile!

HOW OFTEN WILL I GET A PERFORMANCE SUMMARY?

By default, we’ll generate the report once a month! But you can run your own audit from the performance dashboard any time you like. This allows you to review your site’s performance at the most important times, like during peak traffic hours or after you make adjustments. There’s no limit!

DO I NEED A FLYWHEEL HOSTING PLAN TO ADD PERFORMANCE INSIGHTS TO MY SITE?

Yep! We have a number of options to choose from, you can view our plans here. Once you’ve purchased a hosting plan you’ll be able to add Performance Insights straight from your Flywheel dashboard.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ADD A NEW SITE IN MY DASHBOARD? WILL IT AUTOMATICALLY ENROLL IN PERFORMANCE INSIGHTS?

No, new sites you create will not automatically be enrolled in performance insights. This add-on is only activated when you enable it for a site.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN RUNNING A SPEED TEST ONLINE?

You can receive a lot of information from a speed test online. However, our Performance Insight summaries include information that’s only available through your host (Flywheel in this case). An example of this is how well your site is caching. Also, unlike a speed test, Performance Insights provides you with personalized actions on how to make your site more performant. Reports are also delivered automatically to you every month so you can monitor your site’s performance over time and take action if you see any new issues arise!

WHAT DOES FLYWHEEL DO ABOUT MY PERFORMANCE INSIGHTS RESULTS?

Flywheel’s involvement is in producing the report, sharing the results, and helping with any questions you have. The actual implementation of performance optimizations is almost always site development, which is not in the scope of support that Flywheel provides. This means any site level changes would be completed by you or the site developer.
