What do you want to see next?

RE: What do you want to see next?
Hey Patrick,

I am looking at the differences and similarities between the first view and the cached version of this test:

http://www.webpagetest.org/result/100613_3XS/1/details/
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/100613...ls/cached/

Notice how there is a huge gap after the document complete event on the cached version. One thing I have always wondered about (and I am sure others have as well) is what goes on during that period and how do I fix it?

I am sure cached requests occur during that period. Is there anyway you could visually show cached results perhaps in a different color? I think there needs to be a way to help people understand what goes on during those periods with huge gaps.

Sincerely,
Travis Walters

Yep, I had started the work on it, just need to finish it off and figure out how to display it so it doesn't confuse people. Might make them a faint yellow or something like that so it's clear when you're just looking at the waterfall.

The yellow might confuse people with 3xx result.

Perhaps some sort of magenta?

Hey Patrick,

Another thing that would be really useful (but I am not sure it would be possible at least easily) is some sort of JavaScript Analyzer that could go through all JavaScript code for a webpage and do some or all of the following:

1) Specify Unused Functions and Variables
2) Create a JavaScript File with all Used Functions

I think firebug does the first item to an extent. It would be nice to take that a bit further and create something that would do step the second item.

This would be great for getting exactly what you need out of third party JavaScript libraries.

Sincerely,
Travis Walters

RE: What do you want to see next?
That may be a little more difficult than it may even appear (to the point that I'm not sure you'd ever want to trust something that did). The difficulty comes in figuring out if you got 100% of the possible code paths to execute before you go peeling away code and it's unlikely that you'll get that coverage with something like WebPagetest.

I do want to see about adding code coverage and profiling at some point but that will probably be a ways out still.

RE: What do you want to see next?
I would like to be able to automate the entire process. So that i can set the time and page i would like tested and it would check it daily and output the test results into a csv or similar type of file.

How many pages?

It's pretty high on the list to implement recurring scheduled testing but mostly for the private install version. I'll probably enable it on the public version for a handfull of urls for "approved" registered members but need to be a little careful to protect the testing capacity.

RE: What do you want to see next?
Hi Pat

I use Connection rather than Waterfall view almost exclusively. For me it's a really standout feature.

Might we have this as the graph under the Video, please?

Also, could it be the first graph on the Details tab, not the second?

Guess it's a consensus thing, of course.

RE: What do you want to see next?
Actually, I could make it selectable by preference so you won't have to get consensus. I am pretty swamped for the next few weeks but should be able to take a look at it after I get clear. It would be tied to your forum login (been wanting to add more capabilities for "registered" users anyway).

I prefer the cascade view for my day-to-day because it's easy for me to see where a site needs to focus, even from a thumbnail but the connection view is helpful for the implementation details (could be a difference between shallowly looking at a ton of sites vs. looking deeper at a few).

Thanks,

-Pat
