In order to find out how does your application / website behave, there are a number of steps that you have to follow which will give you a better understanding of the current performance state of your website / application.
Usually, you can keep a customers interested if your website’s speed is good enough and each page of your application loads in less than 3 seconds. If it’s more than 3 seconds, we suggest trying to find where your bottlenecks can be.
Here are some tools which will help you get started in order to measure the speed of your site and find bottlenecks:
- allows you to stress test your web apps & APIs with thousands of concurrent connections.
- run performance tests against websites, micro-services and APIs.
- run the site speed test from various test locations
- analyses the content of a web page, then generates suggestions to make that page faster.
