Server-Timing is a new HTTP header to measure server performance. Would be a very useful tool in maintenance mode.

Hi @Oreolek, thanks for the ticket, and for bringing it up for discussion! Sorry for the long wait for a reply.

We chatted about this in today's triage meeting.

It'd be great to explore, starting in this ticket, what this would look like if it were included in core.

Some ideas to start are: What metrics would be best to surface? How would they be added / is an API necessary, and what would it look like?

Personally, I think this would be a good idea for something starting in a feature project, so that it has some time to iterate, and is easier for folks to test out.

To begin the discussion, do you have any thoughts about the above?
What metrics would be most useful for what you do with WordPress?

Thanks again!

I toyed around with this header in Query Monitor a couple of years back but didn't find it particularly useful.

Laps also supports this header but I've not checked to see exactly what it adds.
