Web Page Performance Testing is Easy!
Nobody Likes a slow website! Web Page load time is one of the key concerns of end users. We are going to present a solution with which a developer or a tester can effortlessly gather performance attributes of a web page on the client (browser).
PagePerf (Soon to be made Open Source) is a tool that is built by our team which helps the user to identify the page level performance metrics, and the enhancements that can be made to a website. Important page performance counters like First Paint (FM), First Meaningful Paint (FMP) are gathered and presented instantaneously. PagePerf also provides intelligent analysis on high impact counters like misconfigured ETAGS, Time to First Byte (TTFB) and suggests specific improvements. PagePerf can comprehensively present all the required page performance metrics in a well-designed report which is easy to read, understand and disseminate.
Outline/Structure of the Demonstration
Current Practices & Issues: Capturing all the required page performance metrics currently involves using multiple tools (Lighthouse, ySlow…etc.) as well as manually gathering raw data from browser console. Additionally, the raw data needs manually processed and analyzed to prepare a test report. This cumbersome process needs to be repeated for multiple iterations, on all the numerous core pages, on multiple versions of the web application during its development and testing cycles. Overall, this is a time consuming and tiresome process.
Proposed Alternative and Details: Automating the metric collection, processing, analyzing and reporting of the Page Performance data of a given web application, without the involvement of the combination of numerous tools and manual steps. Also, to provide intelligent page performance improvement recommendations near instantaneously as a scalable solution.
Technology: A peek into the technology behind the solution and overview of the page performance metrics.
Deeper knowledge on factors influencing Client side rendering and how it impacts Web page performance. How to derive performance metrics automatically and analyze along with intelligent suggestion for web page optimization.
