Delay between final requests in GTmetrix waterfall

By courtwhytee ·
Hi all,

I'm new here, hoping there is someone that would be able to help me with my page speed. The problem is consistent across all pages on our site, but the homepage is a good example.
We are preparing for core web vitals and have managed to get our LCP down to an acceptable level for now. However, we are having trouble with our total load time.

Between the final 2 simultaneous requests, there is an approx 3 second delay before the Recapture request happens, according to the waterfall. Here is the screenshot: https://ibb.co/hmQXTNF

Would anyone be able to advise on best practices with an issue like this, and suggest any workarounds that would suit our circumstances?

Recapture have said that their tool is not the issue but I just can't understand how anything else could be in this instance.

Thanks for your help in advance, I appreciate it.

I know GTmetrix and they do offer support for such issues. That's part of what their tool is for.

1. To give insight.
2. To sell support for those that need more.

Since I can't see the page link in question I can't see what the hosting is like or if it's yet another page with large images or on a shared/underpowered server. I tried some direct-brand site (.com) and the home page loaded very fast in under 1 second so I don't see the issue here.

Because Waterfall Charts visualize loading behaviour, you get to see what was loaded in what order, along with the request details. Duration and execution times of requests are also displayed, with varying bar-lengths representing how long each took to request, download, and/or execute.
