Pre-LOAD Get feature

What's driving this request is a web page that is extremely focused on performance.  The page loads "progressively".  It's similar to lazy loading.  The customer request is the capability to send information to Tealeaf in the simplest way possible before the full library loads.  The customer will be able to report on things that happen very early in the page's life cycle.  This is a blind spot for them today.   Imagine that the collector hosts a 1 pixel image.  collector.tealeaf.ibmcloud.com/collector/preload.jpg?foo=bar  Name value pairs could be included with this request inline when the page loads initially.  Additionally, super light javascript can take advantage of this tool on the collector.  Once the full library loads, replay and the full Tealeaf suite of tools would be available normally.  Customer of course understands that replay won't be available.  They are just trying to get visibility closer and closer to the "big bang".

How will this idea be used?

The customer needs the ability to report on things that happen on the page before the Tealeaf library loads.  The library loads not at initial page load but in a delayed "progressive" fashion for performance reasons.  As such the pre-load get will remove some current blindspots that the customer has before analytics libraries can load.  Similar ideas have been discussed in the past for somewhat similar problems, for example where a confirmation page is closed so quickly that they library hasn't sent information off so that it can be reported on.  This will also give us the capability another customer asked for to report on applications that we don't support replay on.  Think Roku or AppleTV.  In short it's a tool to make logging much more available in situations where we don't have the full Tealeaf library.

    Thanks for the feedback!  We have begun some early, internal testing around a similar feature to this and the results look promising.  More internal discussion will need to be had in order to flush out the usability of this and the exact technology we would use to deliver.
