Performance API

High Resolution Time 規格は、アプリケーション内でクライアント側の待ち時間測定をサポートする Performance インターフェイスを定義しています。Performance インターフェイスは 1000 分の 1 ミリ秒の精度であるため、高解像度と見なされます (ハードウェアまたはソフトウェアの制約を受けます)。これらのインターフェイスは、フレームレートの計算 (アニメーションでは潜在的に重要) やベンチマーク (リソースのロード時間など) を含む、さまざまな使用例をサポートしています。

Since a platform's system clock is subject to various skews (such as NTP adjustments), the interfaces support a monotonic clock i.e. a clock that is always increasing. As such, the Performance API defines a DOMHighResTimeStamp type rather than using the interface.


The DOMHighResTimeStamp type, as its name implies, represents a high resolution point in time. This type is a double and is used by the performance interfaces. The value could be a discrete point in time or the difference in time between two discrete points in time.

The unit of DOMHighResTimeStamp is milliseconds and should be accurate to 5 µs (microseconds). However, If the browser is unable to provide a time value accurate to 5 microseconds (because, for example, due to hardware or software constraints), the browser can represent a the value as a time in milliseconds accurate to a millisecond.


The Performance interface has two methods. The now() method returns a DOMHighResTimeStamp whose value that depends on the navigation start (en-US) and scope. If the scope is a window, the value is the time the browser context was created and if the scope is a worker, the value is the time the worker was created.

The toJSON() method returns a serialization of the Performance object, for those attributes that can be serialized.


The Performance interface has two properties. The timing property returns a PerformanceTiming object containing latency-related performance information such as the start of navigation time, start and end times for redirects, start and end times for responses, etc.

The navigation property returns a PerformanceNavigation object representing the type of navigation that occurs in the given browsing context, such as the page was navigated to from history, the page was navigated to by following a link, etc.


Provides methods and properties containing timing-related performance information for the given page.
Provides methods and properties the encapsulate a single performance metric that is part of the performance timeline.
Provides methods and properties containing frame timing data about the browser's event loop.
An abstract interface for performance entries with an entry type of "mark". Entries of this type are created by calling performance.mark() to add a named DOMHighResTimeStamp (the mark) to the browser's performance timeline.
An abstract interface for performance entries with an entry type of "measure". Entries of this type are created by calling performance.measure() to add a namedDOMHighResTimeStamp (the measure) between two marks to the browser's performance timeline.
Provides methods and properties to store and retrieve high resolution timestamps or metrics regarding the browser's document navigation events. 
Provides methods and properties used to observe performance measurement events and be notified of new performance entries as they are recorded in the browser's performance timeline.
Provides methods and properties for retrieving and analyzing detailed network timing data regarding the loading of an application's resources.

As shown in the Performance interface's Browser Compatibility table, most of these interfaces are broadly implemented by desktop browsers.

To test your browser's support for the Performance interface, run the perf-api-support application.
