How it works

The page analyzer analyzes your web page performance by emulating how a web browser would load your page and all resources referenced in it. The page and the referenced resources are loaded and important performance metrics are measured and displayed in a waterfall diagram along with other per-resource attributes such as URL, size, compression ratio and HTTP status code. Each load time bar has parts of different color corresponding to a performance metric:
Regular response:
Legend
Redirect response:
Legend
  • Time in queue: the time a resource is idle in the browser queue waiting to be downloaded.
  • DNS lookup time: the time it takes to resolve the host name into an IP-address.
  • Connect time: the time it takes to establish a connection with the server.
  • Redirect time: the time lost due to a redirect, a response with a HTTP status code of 301, 302, 303 or 307.
  • Time to first byte: the time it took to receive the first byte from the server.
  • Download time: the time spent downloading the resource.
Note: Javascript code is not executed. Resources loaded using Javascript might not be be discovered, loaded and measured.

Emulating web browsers

The page analyzer is capable of emulating a number of well-known web browsers:
  • Chrome 1, 2, 3 and 4
  • Firefox 2, 3 and 3.5
  • Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8
  • Opera 9.64
  • Safari 3 and 4
The following well-known indexing bots can also be used:
  • GoogleBot 2.1
  • MSNBot 1.1
  • Yahoo! Slurp
The following parameters are emulated:
  • Max allowed connections
  • Max allowed persistent-connections per host
  • If scripts are allowed to be downloaded in parallel (*)
  • If external stylesheets block parallel downloads of other resources (*)
  • If an external stylesheet followed by an inline script blocks parallel downloads (*)
  • If external scripts block parallel downloads of other resources (*)
  • Conditional comments (**)
  • CSS 2.1/3 cascading.
  • User-Agent header string set to the user-agent emulated
  • Accept-Charset header string
  • Accept-Encoding header string to handle compressed resources (gzip, deflate and bzip2)
  • Accept-Language header string to emulate user language preference
