Based on the definitions of DOM Complete Time and Total Page Load Time, DOM Complete Time can't be longer than Total Page Load Time. But I do see longer DOM Complete times in interactive charts. How can the DOM Complete time be greater than Total Page Load?
Answer by Maia C. ·
For a single test run, you should always see a shorter DOM Complete time than Total Page Load time. However, users might go to the next page after the DOM Complete event is triggered — before the page load is completed. In this case, only the DOM Complete time is collected. Because there are more data points for the DOM Complete event, this could cause the average time for DOM Complete to be longer than the average time for Total Page Load.
For a more detailed explanation, please see the Knowledge Base article Why average DOM Complete may be longer than average Total Page Load.
