Measuring web performance

  1. 1. Measuring Web Performance Patrick Meenan pmeenan@webpagetest.org @patmeenan
  2. 2. Types of Measurement velocityconf.com/velocity2011/public/schedule/detail/18039
  3. 3. Measuring Web Performance SYNTHETIC TESTING
  4. 4. Active Testing • Consistent results – Good for detecting and diagnosing issues that are 100% repeatable and on pages you are monitoring • Lots of detail • Availability monitoring • Not representative of actual end-user performance – Usually tested from data centers – Sometimes co-located with CDN provider equipment
  5. 5. Bandwidth/Latency Impact (Fixed 60ms RTT) (Fixed 5Mbps Bandwidth) 5 www.belshe.com/2010/05/24/more-bandwidth-doesnt-matter-much/
  6. 6. US Broadband Latency WebPagetest DSL WebPagetest Cable WebPagetest FIOS Backbone 6 www.fcc.gov/document/measuring-broadband-america-report-consumer-broadband-performance-us
  7. 7. Actual Users Backbone Testing 7
  8. 8. DSL – Back-End: 17% Backbone – Back-End: 52% 8
  9. 9. Mac Traffic Shaping OS X Lion + Xcode 4.1 Cable, DSL, 3G, Edge, WiFi and Custom GUI for dummynet (which has been available for a while) osxdaily.com/2011/08/10/simulate-internet-connectivity-bandwidth-speeds-network-link-conditioner/
  10. 10. Synthetic Browsers • Know HOW your active testing is done – Some only test the base page – Synthetic browsers usually not reflective of real browser – Real browser testing – Connectivity (backbone, last-mile) • www.engadget.com – Synthetic Browser: 447 requests – IE 8: 241 requests
  11. 11. Measuring Web Performance REAL USER MONITORING (RUM)
  12. 12. Real User Monitoring (RUM) • Full coverage on all pages visited by users • Real performance information for end-user experience • No availability monitoring • No competitive reference • Limited detail – … but getting better
  13. 13. Navigation Timing window.performance.timing IE 9+ Chrome Firefox 9+ Android 4+ Front-End Back-End 13 dvcs.w3.org/hg/webperf/raw-file/tip/specs/NavigationTiming/Overview.html
  14. 14. Resource Timing (draft) Timing for every network-loaded resource w3c-test.org/webperf/specs/ResourceTiming/
  15. 15. Back-End Only
  16. 16. Access Logs • Overall Response Times - %D (Apache) • Custom variables (app-specific timings) • Logster + graphite = graphs • Lots of data-mining opportunities – Broken links/content (404’s with useful referer information) • Mike Brittain (Etsy) Presentation – http://www.slideshare.net/mikebrittain/web-performance-culture- and-tools-at-etsy-11159635
