An interesting problem came up today where I needed to test the performance of a web site. The site would take longer than 30 seconds to display the initial page, then it would take longer than 20 seconds to load a link per click. I needed something to help me display what was happening, network-wise, when I was trying to test out the site’s performance. Since I couldn’t PING the site, I needed to test out some things against HTTP and HTTPS. My colleague told me to try out the free version of HttpWatch

There is simply too much to talk about the tool here on this blog, but I used the free HttpWatch Basic Edition

I don’t have a huge need for the advanced features, but I can see how this would be an indispensible tool for coders and web developers. Check out the website
