In the world of web performance, Akamai is uniquely positioned. Between 15-30% of the world’s web traffic flows through our network at any given time, which gives us unique insight into how ISPs, devices, and browsers ‘see’ the web. With the recent implementation of the W3C Resource Timing specification in major web browsers, that insight has become even clearer.
For anyone who has used a synthetic monitoring tool like WebPageTest, they know the value of a web page waterfall chart, which illustrates the page load process. Now that Resource Timing is supported by the most recent versions of Chrome and IE browsers, we are able to understand what a waterfall looks like at RUM scale.
This presentation will cover the following topics:
Attendees will be able to take some important concepts away from this talk, including what real-world performance patterns emerge when we look at a web page load holistically, and how they can leverage Resource Timing data within their own RUM implementations.
