    This tab shows a summary of network related data for the whole log or the currently selected items:

    Elapsed Time

    This is the time in seconds from the start of the first request in the summary to the end of the last item. This can be used to find the total time to download a page or set of pages.

    Network Round Trips

    This value indicates how many requests resulted in an HTTP request and response message being exchanged with a web server. Some entries do not cause a network round trip because either an error occurred (e.g. ERROR_INTERNET_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) or because no network request was required (e.g. entries resulting in a (Cache) response).

    Downloaded Data

    This is the total amount of data that has been received from web server(s) (i.e. response headers and content). In the case of HTTPS connections this includes the overhead of the SSL encryption process.

    Uploaded Data

    The total amount of data that has been sent to web server(s) (i.e. request headers and POST data). In the case of HTTPS connections this includes the overhead of the SSL encryption process.

    HTTP Compression Savings

    This total number of bytes by which downloaded content was reduced in size by HTTP compression.

    DNS Lookups

    The total number of times that a network name like 'www.google.com' was converted to an IP address (e.g. 72.14.221.103)

    TCP Connects

    This is the number of times that a new TCP level connection had to be made with web server(s) in the summary data. An excessively high number of TCP connects may indicate that HTTP persistent connections, also known as keep-alive connections, have not been correctly configured on the server.

    Total HTTPS overhead

    If there are any HTTPS requests in the summary data, this value indicates how many extra bytes of data were required to encrypt the request and response messages.

    Average HTTPS overhead per request

    This is average overhead in bytes of each HTTPS request. If this value is high (more than a few hundred bytes), it may indicate that the server is incorrectly configured and is causing an excessive number of HTTPS renegotiations.
