Number of times to run each test

To reduce variability between results, DebugBear can run tests multiple times and select the median result. The other results will be discarded.

By default tests are only run once, but you can run each test up to 7 times.

How is the median result selected?

The median result is currently selected based on the First Contentful Paint and Time To Interactive metrics. The algorithm used is similar to the median-run algorithm used by Lighthouse.
