Dotcom-Monitor Makes Web Performance Testing Faster at Velocity Conference 2012
Santa Clara, CA- Velocity Conference (Booth 512), June 27, 2012 – Dotcom-Monitor launches the world’s fastest scripting tool for automating web performance monitoring of website applications with dynamic page content, UserView Monitoring.
“DevOps needs two things to respond to demands on their time for monitoring of complex web applications. Automation of web performance monitoring scripts that takes minutes – not days – and browser scripts that can step through dynamic page content without breaking,” said CTO Vadim Mazo, “UserView Monitoring gives them both.”
On the 8th of June the first game of the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship will start a series of exciting duels between European’s top 16 national soccer teams. Many popular media websites will be covering the EURO 2012 events. In turn, Dotcom-Monitor will be conducting website monitoring to analyze online performance and uptime of those sites covering the games. We will keep you updated and informed about the results.
On February 15, 2012 I had the privilege of presenting a talk on website performance monitoring to 800+ of the world’s top online retail IT experts at the renowned Internet Retailer – Website Design and Usability Conference (IRWD) in Orlando, Florida alongside Matt Hoenck, the IT Director at Thymes.com. Competition is fierce in online retail and the stakes are high as more and more shoppers switch from bricks-and-mortar to online buying. Online retailers must remain informed of new technologies that improve website uptime and performance, (such as the new UserView Monitoring – Video Capture) and strike the right balance with user experience expectations involving website design and usability.
The switch to IPv6 is jumping to light speed. On June 8, 2011 several large organizations, including Google, Yahoo, and Facebook will run a comprehensive test for switching to IPv6. If all goes well most companies will start making the switch. However, the advent of IPV6 is not without problems and the performance monitoring solutions that worked for IPv4, will not work with IPv6.
Using an active external performance monitoring service will be critical with the advent of IPv6. Network and website managers must have a true view into end-user connectivity and the ability to receive instant notification whenever a problem occurs.

BrowserView Website Performance Test is a free online test that uses Dotcom-Monitor’s browser-based BrowserView Monitoring™ platform. The test produces a detailed waterfall chart – from each of the 19 worldwide locations – that displays the time it takes to render individual webpage objects, including dynamic Web 2.0 page elements (such as Ajax, Flash, etc..). BrowserView Website Performance Test has the most comprehensive worldwide network of monitoring locations currently available.
So, is there a practical way to think about website performance monitoring and the services needed to monitor specific scenarios? Yes.
The following website performance monitoring selection guide, while no means universal, provides basic guidance in understanding what performance monitoring service best fits certain scenarios and requirements.
An icon in the Twin Cities triathlon community, Jerry Bous, has a website problem that’s good to have. He has been able to parlay his love for the sport of triathlon into an occupation as THE triathlon race announcer as well as owner of the very popular and respected website www.MinnesotaTriNews.com.
But, the problem — similar to a triathlete who plateaus in their swim/bike/run speed at this point in the racing season — is that Jerry’s website may have recently “plateaued” in response time and in order to continue to improve is likely in need of some ongoing response time and performance monitoring.
