How to Quantify Instance Characteristics (CPU/RAM/etc..) - ben.hastings - 06-15-2013 01:02 AM

We need to consider global timings of our website and we use webpagetest as one of the tools to break down the elements of our page.

We're really concerned about JS evaluation and fully realize that isn't something explicitly measured. However, we can look at CPU as an indicator of what is going on with the browser.

What I've recently noticed is that there are very different CPU profiles depending on the site. Is there any catalog of what the site machines' capabilities might be? I've done some digging, but come up with nothing yet.

Thanks for any help hunting this down!
