Set-up & Management of Performance Tools

Set-up & Management of Performance Tools

Whether you want to measure load time or user capacity, there’s no shortage of performance tools out there. The trick lies in finding the right ones for your team and the mission-critical questions you wish to answer. With everything hinging on performance and usability, failure to source, set up, and manage the right tools can be costly.

Precision tools for clear-cut goals

Every second it takes to load a web page represents dollars earned or lost.

Whether you want to measure speed or stability, performance tools are essential when gathering insight into user experience on any web-related interface, service, or application.

Different teams need different tools. They may require distinct approaches to measuring. Together, we’ll define a sophisticated performance goal beyond, ‘we want our website to load in x seconds.’ Being specific is the key to pinpointing the right tools for the job.

Get granular

Performance goals will vary, but here are a few examples:

  • Achieve 99.9% transactional availability to ensure users complete their journey without issue
  • Render viewable content on your homepage in sub-two seconds for 85% of users (desktop and mobile)
  • Have an average page load time in pre-production of under 2.5 seconds
  • Less than 500 kilobytes of JavaScript on your homepage and no images over 200 kilobytes.
  • Sustain a load of 5000 virtual users across a shopping journey, from homepage to checkout

Find your suite spot

No one tool covers all of your web performance needs. Each one has its pros and cons. You’ll most likely need a portfolio, which may include Real User Monitoring (RUM), Application Performance Management (APM), synthetic and load/capacity testing tools.

With our breadth and depth of knowledge of every single tool on the market, we’re the perfect match for helping you find the most potent mix for your business.
