[Feature enhancement] Decode page speed issues of websites hosted on your enterprise network

It's important to understand the performance of your web pages, both at the customer's point of presence and behind the corporate firewall. With our latest enhancement to the Web Page Speed (Browser), you can now monitor the load speed of your corporate web pages using an On-Premise Poller (Linux) installed within your enterprise network.

Understanding page load issues at a glance

For those of you that haven't used our Web Page Speed (Browser) yet, here's a short overview of how it works. The Web Page Speed (Browser) uses a Firefox browser to make an HTTP request to the web host; the host server then responds by dispatching the requested HTML and its associated elements. During this process, it measures the website performance at a granular level, capturing individual page load times, sizes, and response codes of elements such as HTML, CSS, images, JavaScript, links pulled from third-party websites, and AJAX requests. Waterfall charts, historic, real-time reports, and error screenshots make troubleshooting easier. You can also configure content checks and customized settings to receive notifications during any threshold breach.

Gathering web page intelligence to optimize websites hosted on your private network

Site24x7 uses over 90 global monitoring stations to help you understand how page speeds differ for various customers around the world. However, to completely fine-tune your web page's performance, it's equally important to gain page speed insight from your local branch office. By installing our On-Premise Poller software in your intranet network, you can easily track any slow loading components on web pages hosted behind your firewall. The real browser bundled with On-Premise Poller software makes an HTTP request to these web pages and uses it to measure the time it takes for the page to load.

Use case: Analyzing web page components in your pre-production environment

Before moving into the production stage, web designers often run the HTML and its associated elements through a test grid for quality analysis. With support for our On-Premise Poller, Web Page Speed (Browser) aids in the continuous creation and roll-out of web pages by:

  • Ensuring your web page and its assets are always accessible from anywhere.
  • Identifying any slow loading elements on the web page hosted in your test environment.
  • Notifying you about broken links and assets on your web page before your page is made generally available.
  • Giving you the ability to share in-house SLA compliance data with peers and customers.
Since a slow loading website can hamper the overall end-user experience and drive potential customers away, it's best to fix any underlying issues prior to going GA. To learn more about how and why you should start monitoring your web page's speed on both the internet and intranet, read about Site24x7's Web Page Speed (Browser) and On-Premise Poller.
