Website Server Speed Test - As worldwide soccer fans went crazy about Euro 2012, the Dotcom-Monitor team took advantage of an opportunity to study how popular media site servers covering Euro 2012 behave when thousands of visitors converge on these websites. Dotcom-Monitor ran website server speed tests and monitored the most popular media site servers covering Euro 2012 from June 8 – June 15, which enabled us to validate how the performance of these media website servers changed and how well the tech teams had prepared for a surge in website traffic due to the Euro 2012 event.
BTW, the results of an initial first week of website server speed testing and monitoring for Euro 2012 was also published.

How we monitored the websites:
The Dotcom-Monitor team used two monitoring approaches to ensure accurate and comprehensive data: the ServerView Monitoring platform was used to analyze web server performance and availability, while the BrowserView Monitoring platform used a Firefox browser to provide performance details on website speed, or how fast the whole site loads.
Monitoring dates: June, 8 – July, 1
Monitoring geography: USA, Europe, Asia
Monitoring frequency: 15 minutes
