    Hey all, I've played around with the Timeline and read through the knowledgebase page, http://docs.telerik.com/fiddler/knowledgebase/timeline.

    I still can't seem to discover how to get actual times in milliseconds to show. I see the scale divided into 1s increments but nothing more granular. Anyone know the secret here? I can't imagine that functionality isn't in there someplace with all the other sophistication. Thanks!

    Howdy, Bradley-- Interestingly, the granular timings aren't shown on the Timeline tab today; the intent of this tab is to show the relative timings between multiple individual requests. That enables you to see parallel connections, connection reuse, etc.

    The Statistics tab is the easiest way to see exact timers today (or you can add timers as new columns in the Web Sessions list).

    Can you elaborate on what specifically you hoped to see in the timeline?

    Thanks Eric. I'm tracing delivery performance across our CDN stack for custom 3rd party media content. I'd like to capture absolute start times and duration of each server call in milliseconds to see where improvement opportunities exist for executions that exceed load time standards. I currently accomplish this using two proxy tools, but I'd rather achieve it all using just Fiddler. 

    I did find a script (I think in the Telerik Fiddler resources) for adding columns as you mention. I'll try that out.
