Top 5 Software For Analyzing Website Performance

The speed of the website is one of the most important factors leading to a high conversion rate. Fast loading websites gain from higher SEO rankings which have a direct impact on user experience, low bounce rate, engagement as well as conversion rates. Conducting a performance test for any website helps in understanding the responsiveness and the scalability of the website, which have a direct impact on the user experience and the revenue generation.

Before beginning the process of testing a website for its performance, it is important to keep in mind a few considerations.

  • One of the most crucial things to understand is the purpose of the website. Is it to provide web services or is being used to sell products and services.
  • Understand the reason for testing and what is it that needs to be measured. E.g. response time, number of users, etc.
  • Understand customer expectations
  • Understand the availability of QA tools and the project schedule.

What are different kinds of performance test that can be conducted for a website?

  • Performance test – This is done to check the responsiveness, speed, and scalability of the website
  • Load test- this is done to check the behaviour of the website under a certain workload.
  • Stress Test – This is to check how the system reacts under extreme load conditions and helps in finding out issues related to memory leaks and synchronization
  • Endurance test – This is done to ensure that the system can handle the expected load for a long period of time.
  • Capacity test- it is done to understand and check how many users/transactions can be supported at one time.
