Transcript

  • 1. Tamperdata Firefox Extension QuickStart Tony Fortunato, Network Performance Specialist The Technology Firm
  • 2. What is Tamperdata?
    • Tamperdata is;
      • at http://tamperdata.mozdev.org/index.html
      • Since it is an extension it is lightweight
      • A way to document and measure issues with http based applications
  • 3. Why use tamperdata?
    • tamperdata can be used for the following tasks;
    • It is originally intended for developers and programmers to test security
    • Identify why a page may take a long time to load
    • http application baselining and troubleshooting
    • Able to show images that was loaded
    • Show any http errors or coding issues
  • 4. Accessing Tamperdata
    • After you install the extension, simply go to the Tools Menu in Firefox to access it
  • 5. Using Tamperdata
    • To use Tamperdata is very straightforward;
    • Launch Tamperdata from the Tools menu
    • Go to a webpage
    • Done
  • 6. Filtering Tamperdata results
    • Some web pages may have a lot of data
    • The filter feature will help zero in on specific commands and responses
    • In this example I only wanted to see anything that had an espn reference
  • 7. Request and Response Panes
    • A real timesaver is to see the request and responses side by side with the application response time
    • Knowing what cause an error return code sure helps
  • 8.
    • The only option is use regularly is the Graph All option
    • Please note that the browser options only work if a browser is already open. If no browser is open, it will not launch a browser for you.
    Options for Reports
  • 9. Graph All results
    • This is one of my favorite views
    • It shows;
      • a timeline which is solid for the duration of the command and response
      • The response code so you can see is there was a problem
    • If you leave your mouse over an entry, it will show more detail including the file size and if it’s a graphic, will show the graphic
