Web pages performance testing

Published on Author gryzliLeave a comment

Very often I need to test some page speed and using bunch of websites, which produce very detailed information.

 

Here are some of them:

 

http://www.webpagetest.org/

This is the first one I’ve been using for a long time. Here are some of the features it supports:

  • Select location from which the tests are going to be initiated
  • Select the connection speed for the testings
  • Select number of tests – This is very nice, because you can check the differences of loading the page WITH and WITHOUT caching in effect
  • There are some other features also (which I’ve never used), and you can check them by going to the “Advanced” section
  • You can get some public/private URL’s pointing to your test results – Again very useful if you want to send this to someone
WebPageTest.org
WebPageTest.org

 

WebPageTest.org - Content Breakdown

Here again you get plenty of performance suggestions and also the following:

  • Yslow grade
  • Timeline waterfall view
  • History chart – This is very handy and you can compare your performance results back in time with different version

Pingdom has some nice features and as far as I know it’s also used for website availability monitoring.

The tests are issued very fast compared to webpagetest.org.

Again it gives you the standard information: waterfall view, performance history, Page analysis …etc.
