New Full page Waterfall graph

The waterfall graph for Full page checks has been redesigned in order to make it even easier to drill down, analyze and pinpoint performance problems.

The bottom part shows the load times for your own content.





10 last runs summary


Together with the waterfall graph we’ve introduced a summary of the results of the last ten runs of a check. If you have large variations in performance, problems come and go, this can be particularly useful for troubleshooting.



Comparison of 3G operators

We can now run checks using all 3G operators in Sweden. By running checks on all operators and comparing results you will see how your content and services are experienced by all mobile broadband users in Sweden.

As you can see in the sample graph, response times can vary quite significantly depending on which 3G operator your customers is using.

We’re constantly updating our agent network and since the last release we have added Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Beijing, China.
