Benefits of Testing Website & Webpage Load Speed

Continuously testing your website’s speed helps you proactively address performance issues before end-users are impacted. Monitoring page load times provides detailed information for troubleshooting root causes.

  • Quickly troubleshoot issues by identifying which components in a webpage are slow (CSS, HTML, JavaScript, etc.)
  • Determine if the page is loading slowly everywhere, or if it’s isolated to a specific region
  • Improve search engine results with faster page load speeds

Best Practices: Website Speed Testing and Performance Monitoring

Test your website speed continuously to help ensure you are meeting your end-user’s expectations and application SLAs. Testing website speed allows you to stay ahead of performance issues before users are impacted.

  1. Best Practice 1: Examine every aspect of your webpage

    Determine which webpage components create performance bottlenecks. Monitor file size, load times, and front-end components such as CSS, HTML, JavaScript, images, etc. This helps you identify which elements are loading slowly, and which ones are unresponsive. View DNS lookup, connection time, send, receive, and wait times to drill into various stages of page load speeds.

  2. Best Practice 2: Test website speeds from anywhere

    If you have critical apps or websites hosted in the Cloud, customer-facing applications hosted on-premises, or internal applications (such as your company’s intranet), you should monitor website load times from where users are accessing the application. SolarWinds® website speed testing software gives you the flexibility to monitor website performance from within your firewall, at remote locations where you have a physical presence, or from locations where public Cloud providers like Amazon EC2® are present. Simply record the transaction (e.g. the customer interaction with your website), and deploy the transaction to players where most of your users will be accessing the website.

Best Practice 3: Get notified in case of slow response or downtim

Downtime occurs on even the most robust websites. If you are alerted to slow-loading webpage components or downtime as it’s happening, you can determine whether these issues are caused by bottlenecks across your IT infrastructure. Proactive alerting helps you track issues and determine which methods should be used to troubleshoot performance issues before end-users are affected.
