new performance testing plugin: Browser Timer
This is a very early beta release for advanced users who may find it useful.
(works in 0.9 and 1.x)
While my bb-benchmark plugin will tell you how long it’s taking your server to make pages, you really have no idea how long it’s taking your users to browse your forums and see those pages.
You can time your own browser, but often you have many things already cached and might use a faster browser or live much closer to your server than someone else across the country or the other side of the world.
So now you can know exactly how long it’s taking for them to see your pages.
It’s very accurate in my testing, within 100ms typically.
Basically it works by using a sort of “round trip” timer.
You can add a geo-location database and it will tell you what country the visitor is in, which helps to understand why a time may be so high/low.
