Greetings!! It is time for the 5th edition of the Bangalore Site Speed Meetup
Our community is once again looking forward to hear about the storeis of web optimization and infrastructure tuning. If you have a story to tell, we are here to listen!
Please upload your talk or workshop proposals at the hasgeek link provided
When we rely only on the metrics we collect from the user (Real User Monitoring - RUM) to understand how the application performs, we face few shortcomings. We will be able to identify any performance degradation only after it reaches the user. It will be hard to identify any degradation if the volume of the data is insufficient. Also, the metrics may vary for different environments which will make it hard to identify the reason for the degradation.
Establishing active monitoring of the application in a defined environment that simulates user actions (Synthetic Monitoring) can help overcome the shortcomings of RUM. RUM and Synthetic monitoring complement each other very well.
Sitespeed.io is a comprehensive synthetic performance monitoring tool for web-based applications as it provides 3 key features.
- It provides the ability to create custom scripts that can run in browsers to simulate user actions.
- It can provide us meaningful suggestions on how we can improve the application from the end user’s perspective.
- It gives us the ability for saving the data to keep track of the changes.
