parallel downloads - trx - 07-27-2011 08:58 AM

Hello All,
NOT sure what has changed, but if you take a look at these reports, you will see that it's page load is 3 vs. 6 seconds due to the parallel downloads of the static files whereas the 6 seconds report waited for each static file. Any thoughts on what could of caused these results?

Sure. One test was conducted using IE 7 (6 seconds), and the other one wih IE 8 (3 seconds).
The behaviour you observe is normal, as IE 7 was opening up only 2 connections per server in parallel, while MS increased that with IE 8 to 6 connections per server in parallel.

So what you see is only different browser behaviour, nothing has changed on your end.

Kind regards,

Thank you. That made perfect sense.
