In this blog post, we will discuss what performance levels are and how to use them. Performance levels have been introduced with Silk Performer 18.0 and they allow for a quick and easy passed/failed assessment of your measures and load tests.
First, we will discuss how to set performance levels up, based on a four-step workflow. And then, we'll be stepping through a real-world example within Silk Performer.
Measuring the user experience of AJAX websites with the timings the browser provides can be difficult. Often the perceived loading time of a web page differs considerably from the measured loading time.Therefore, Silk Performer introduced the time to interact.
In this blog post, we will explain what exactly the time to interact is, why and when it is useful, and how to actually use the time to interact in Silk Performer.
Silk Performer 17.0 introduces a number of new features and enhancements for Performance Explorer. In this blog post, we're going to show you the 4 most important ones:
(1) The new User Type Comparison Report: Including the Region Comparison Report and the Custom Comparison Report (formerly named Cross-Load Test Report) you have now three types of comparison reports available for extensive analysis. (2) The new Comparing Graphs feature: With just two clicks, you can now compare a specific measure with the same measure from all other user types, agents, or regions. (3) The new Export to Excel feature: Simply export your Performance Explorer charts or tables to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. (4) The new Tree Filter: It allows you to quickly access measures in the tree, which is especially useful when you have to deal with many nodes and deep hierarchies.
Word reporting is one of the great new features of Silk Performer 16.5. Besides the well-known HTML Overview Report, Silk Performer now also allows you to create Word Overview Reports. Once you've adjusted the settings that control the content and looks, generating a Word report is literally done with just one click. We'll show you how to create a template for your Word report and how to customize the document by adding your own logo and adjusting the appearance.
