Why the audit is important
The Consistently Interactive metric measures when a page is fully interactive:
- The page strictly meets the Idle guideline of the RAIL performance model: the page yields control back to the main thread at least once every 50ms.
- The network is idle. Specifically, there are only two open network requests remaining.

How to pass the audit
To improve your Consistently Interactive score:
- Minimize the number of required or "critical" resources that must be downloaded or executed before the page can load. See Critical Rendering Path.
- Minimize the size of each critical resource. See Optimizing Content Efficiency.
How the audit is implemented
This section explains how this audit is implemented, so that you can understand how the audit's score is calculated.
The score is a lognormal distribution of some complicated calculations based on the definition of the Consistently Interactive metric. See First Interactive And Consistently Interactive for definitions.
