The Performance dashboard in Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) is a tool that quickly gives you the time it takes a webpage to render changes that were made to the DOM (Paint Time), how many frames per second it's rendering (Frame Rate), how much memory it's using (Memory), and how much demand it's putting on your processor (CPU).

The dashboard is a great starting point for identifying the actions that cause slowness in your website. Then use the UI Responsiveness profiler to get finer details of the problems.
