Today’s websites must frequently update and change to keep up with competition and attract new users, but such changes can have a negative impact on the user experience if not managed properly. The dynamic nature of the Internet makes it necessary to constantly monitor different metrics. One of the biggest challenges in performance monitoring the lack of clarity when configuring alerts. Alerts that are set up using the wrong configuration can lead to an overabundance of false positive alerts or no alerts at all, which results in an increased MTTR. Webpage response is an ... (more)

Regular tests of our own infrastructure ensure that our customers are not being hampered by performance issues on our end. For a commercial enterprise company like Honeywell, which manufactures thousands of different produc... (more)

How to Optimize TCP | @DevOpsSummit @Catchpoint #DX #DevOps #WebPerf

Optimize TCP to Speed Through the Digital Freeway By Dhanush Suhas TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and stored also evolve... (more)

Web Performance 101: HTTP Headers | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #WebPerf

Web Performance 101: HTTP Headers By Kameerath Kareem Hypertext Transfer Protocol, or HTTP, was first introduced by Tim Berners-Lee in 1991. The initial version HTTP/0.9 was designed to facilitate data transfers between a client and server. The protocol works on a request-response model over a TCP connection, but it’s evolved over the years to include several improvements and advanced features. The latest version is HTTP/2, which has introduced major advancements that prioritize webpage performance and speed. This article discusses an important component of the HTTP model – heade... (more)
