So once you learn to crawl, you will land on this page, where you have all of  your projects.

So here is your summary tab, which gathers all your main crawl data information. You can easily know how many pages you've been crawling, if you have indexed pages, if you have no-index pages, if you have status code errors, if you have duplication issues...
So you can access your page depth distribution here.
Every time you click on a specific chart, you will access our URL viewer, where you have further details about the specific information you're looking for. SO here you have further details about the title, status code, meta robots. At any time, you can add another type of filter, so if you want to have data about the load time, you can add it. There it is.
