Google Page Speed Insights

There’s a Google Page Speed Insights plugin at and since 12.2.0 it runs the new Lighthouse backend.

You can run it with:

docker run --shm-size=1g --rm -v "$(pwd):/" sitespeedio/ --plugins.remove

The container also includes Lighthouse. We automatically release a new version of the container per release by adding -plus1 to the tag. If you use Graphite/InfluxDb the score from Lighthouse and GPSI will be automatically stored.

The plugin will send a request to the Google Page Speed Servers and parse the result. The result will look something like this:


The plugin also collect metrics for the specific page and the domain from the Chrome User Experience report: GPSI distribution

All scores and distributions is automatically sent to Graphite/InfluxDB.

Disable Lighthouse #

If you only want to run GPSI and not Lighthouse you can disable it with --plugins.remove
