Logging server timing entries

Server timing metrics require the server to send the Server-Timing header. For example:

Server-Timing: cache;desc="Cache Read";dur=23.2

The serverTiming entries can live on navigation and resource entries.

Example using a PerformanceObserver, which notifies of new navigation and resource performance entries as they are recorded in the browser's performance timeline. Use the buffered option to access entries from before the observer creation.

const observer = new PerformanceObserver((list) => {
  list.getEntries().forEach((entry) => {
    entry.serverTiming.forEach((serverEntry) => {
        `${} (${serverEntry.description}) duration: ${serverEntry.duration}`
      // Logs "cache (Cache Read) duration: 23.2"

["navigation", "resource"].forEach((type) =>
  observer.observe({ type, buffered: true })

Example using Performance.getEntriesByType(), which only shows navigation and resource performance entries present in the browser's performance timeline at the time you call this method:

for (const entryType of ["navigation", "resource"]) {
  for (const { name: url, serverTiming } of performance.getEntriesByType(
  )) {
    if (serverTiming) {
      for (const { name, description, duration } of serverTiming) {
        console.log(`${name} (${description}) duration: ${duration}`);
        // Logs "cache (Cache Read) duration: 23.2"
