Hi Alessandro, 

It is possible to track page load times with extra implementation. This blog post by Ben Gaines should help you get an idea on how to go about it https://blogs.adobe.com/digitalmarketing/analytics/measuring-site-speed-in-adobe-analytics/

Also, this discussion on stackoverflow can also serve as reference if you want to do it through DTM http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28710564/how-can-getloadtime-plugin-be-implemented-in-adobe-dtm

Let me know if that helps. Thanks!

Does the community know if there is a way to track at a more granular level than seconds? Like 10ths or better yet 100ths of a second?

At this point a second is to large of a number when we're trying to gauge success in our optimizations. Google Analytics has out of the box functionality to go to 100ths of a second.

Capture page load time in prop as mentioned in this article: https://theblog.adobe.com/measuring-site-speed-in-adobe-analytics/

s.prop1=s_getLoadTime();

 

This will assign the page load time, in tenths of a second, to prop1. For example, if my page took 3.75 seconds to load, I would get a raw value of 38 in the Page Load Time (prop1) report. So if you want to capture the page load time in seconds.

 

s.prop1=(s_getLoadTime()/10);

As a Tealium user I would be very interested in any other ways that people are recording page load speed.

The Above solutions have never worked for us.
