What is the "interaction speed" measuring?


I am trying to understand the metric that is being reported on the “main” screen under mobile, we have multiple apps, and the 3rd metric over is “interaction speed” but I cant find a definition of what this metric is reporting

Thanks for the assistance.


Hi, @Nathan.stryker: Our mobile SDKs begin automatically tracing interactions based on the start of each unique ViewController (iOS) or Activity (Android) initialization method; developers can also make an API call to define the starting point for custom interaction traces. Application code and network requests are tracked, and when no major activity is detected on UI or background threads for 500ms, the interaction is complete.
