I'm trying to follow the idea suggested in the Web Performance Testing with WebDriver google test automation conference talk and ChromeDriver "Performance Log" documentation page to get the trace data which I want to submit to webpagetest for performance analysis later.

How can I retrieve performance logs using python selenium bindings?


I've tried to print out log_types available in the driver instance

from selenium import webdriver

driver = webdriver.Chrome()

driver.get('https://stackoverflow.com')

print driver.log_types

driver.close()

but got only

[u'browser', u'driver']

And I don't see a relevant command-line switch.

Performance logs are disabled by default.

To enable it, use DesiredCapabilities and configure loggingPrefs:

from selenium import webdriver

from selenium.webdriver.common.desired_capabilities import DesiredCapabilities

caps = DesiredCapabilities.CHROME

caps['loggingPrefs'] = {'performance': 'ALL'}

driver = webdriver.Chrome(desired_capabilities=caps)

driver.get('https://www.intellipaat.com')

for entry in driver.get_log('performance'):

    print(entry)

driver.quit()

This results into a bunch of tracing log entries shown on the console:

{u'timestamp': 1419487459178, u'message': u'{"message":{"method":"Network.responseReceived","params":{"frameId":"2105.1","loaderId":"2105.2","requestId":"2105.1","response":{"connectionId":0,"connectionReused":false,"encodedDataLength":-1,"fromDiskCache":false,"fromServiceWorker":false,"headers":{"Access-Control-Allow-Origin":"*","Content-Type":"text/plain;charset=US-ASCII"},"mimeType":"text/plain","status":200,"statusText":"OK","url":"data:,"},"timestamp":1419487458.92934,"type":"Document"}},"webview":"2C66E956-A48B-456B-8A4E-1022F699AA92"}', u'level': u'INFO'}
