lighthouse-graphite

NodeJS app that get metrics from a website using lighthouse and sends them to a graphite service.

Installation

npm i -g lighthouse-graphite

Usage

lighthouse-graphite url [flags]

flags

  • --runs (Number, defaults to 3): number of lighthouse runs.
  • --graphite-host (String): the host of the graphite service where metrics are going to be sent to. If not defined, the metrics will be only printed in the console.
  • --graphite-prefix (String, defaults to empty string): the argument's value will be added as a prefix to all metrics sent to graphite. You should at least set the website's url (replace all dots and other special characters to avoid issues with graphite), to be able to collect different metrics for different pages without metric collision.
  • --metrics-blacklist (Values separated by commas, defaults to empty string): set this argument to ignore one or more metrics from being sent to graphite. This is useful when you have a limit on the number of metrics stored by graphite. Names of metrics are listed below.
  • --function-blacklist (Values separated by commas, defaults to empty string): set this argument to ignore one or more aggregation functions from being sent to graphite. This is useful when you have a limit on the number of metrics stored by graphite. Possible values: min, max, mean and median.
  • --blocked-url-patterns (Values separated by commas, defaults to empty string): set this argument to tell Chrome what URLs of requests to block while loading the page. Basic wildcard support using *.
  • --chrome-flags (Values separated by commas, defaults to --no-sandbox,--headless,--incognito): set this to pass custom flags to Chrome.

The following command will run lighthouse 5 times on https://www.example.com, ignore the mean and max functions, and ignore the seo-score and best-practices-score metrics:

lighthouse-graphite https://www.example.com --run=5 --graphite-host=graphite.example.com --graphite-prefix=lighthouse.example_com --metrics-blacklist=seo-score,best-practices-score --function-blacklist=mean,max

These metrics would be sent to graphite.example.com:

lighthouse.example_com.first-contentful-paint.min 751
lighthouse.example_com.first-contentful-paint.median 751
lighthouse.example_com.first-meaningful-paint.min 788
lighthouse.example_com.first-meaningful-paint.median 788
lighthouse.example_com.speed-index.min 869
lighthouse.example_com.speed-index.median 900
lighthouse.example_com.estimated-input-latency.min 12
lighthouse.example_com.estimated-input-latency.median 12
lighthouse.example_com.time-to-first-byte.min 106
lighthouse.example_com.time-to-first-byte.median 107
lighthouse.example_com.first-cpu-idle.min 824
lighthouse.example_com.first-cpu-idle.median 825
lighthouse.example_com.interactive.min 824

lighthouse.example_com.network-requests.min 1
lighthouse.example_com.network-requests.median 1

lighthouse.example_com.pwa-score.median 50
lighthouse.example_com.accessibility-score.min 88
lighthouse.example_com.accessibility-score.median 88
lighthouse.example_com.total-time.min 4568
lighthouse.example_com.total-time.median 4627

Metrics

The app will collect a sub-set of metrics returned by lighthouse, most of them are related to performance. The documentation of these metrics can be found in the Audit Reference section of the Lighthouse documentation.

The list of the collected metrics is:

  • first-contentful-paint
  • first-meaningful-paint
  • speed-index
  • estimated-input-latency
  • time-to-first-byte
  • first-cpu-idle
  • interactive
  • network-requests
  • total-byte-weight
  • dom-size
  • total-time
  • performance-score
  • pwa-score
  • accessibility-score
  • best-practices-score
  • seo-score
