The below techniques can be used to identify slow or failing URLs for use in data collection filters.

  • URL in the browser address bar
  • If the trouble is with a link, hover over the link to check the full URL.  Take a screenshot or make a note of it.  Right click>Properties can also show the resource.
  • If the object not loading is an embedded object on the page, right click on the page - view html source.  The objects on the page should be visible in the source by filename or url.
  • Press F12 in your browser or another shortcut to run Developer Tools
  • Under Debugging, press the Pause button with 2 bars in it, and make sure the page is set to Never Break on Exceptions
  • Go to the Network tab and make sure it is recording
  • Refresh the page
  • Look for denied resources or failed authentication challenges in the HTTP Response column and identify the resource that was requested and the response
  • Look under the Console tab for failed resources that were called by a script rather than the browser.
