There are 1.3 billion websites in the wide unknown, and it’s tough not to wonder what sets them apart. Why do people flock to one website while ignoring the other? Of course, content is a big differentiation. I’m not going to debate whether form of material is better. Another reason why customers favor one website over another is the user experience.
We’ll look at a third significant factor today: website performance.
While basic websites are considerably easier to manage in terms of measuring website traffic and running optimally, more sophisticated web apps provide a more challenging job in terms of guaranteeing a seamless user experience on all levels.
The Time to Interactive (TTI) value, which indicates how long it takes for the application to render and respond to user interaction, is the next thing to check for.
Here’s a fast way to determine your TTI:
- Start with Contented Painting (FCP).
- Look for the last lengthy task before the quiet window, and if none is discovered, return to FCP.
How To Raise Your TTI Score?
TTI optimization might be as straightforward as loading just scripts that give interaction to already-loaded items. While this may appear to be a simple notion, it is really fairly frequent for apps to have material that is not interactive.
Nonetheless, there are some things you can do to reduce your TTI.
- Code minification and compression. It’s so simple that there’s really no downside.
- Making use of Preload. When we use preload in the link tag, we make an early retrieve request to get the resource. Typically used to obtain high-priority resources that were previously utilized in the current route.
The Error Rate
The Error Rate is a performance indicator that records the percentage of requests that have problems compared to the total number of requests.It’s critical to keep an eye on this number because any increase indicates that a major failure is likely in the near future.
Errors can occur as a result of a variety of factors, and there is no effective way to prevent them. The best thing you can do is stay ahead of them by closely monitoring your website or application with a real user monitoring tool.
Maximum Response Time
The longest response time for all requests received by the server is referred to as the peak response time (PRT). It will show you where your web application is underperforming or having problems delivering requests, making it easy to pinpoint the culprit.
When working with third-party APIs, it’s vital to monitor how the APIs operate under stress and how fast they respond to users that are far away from you. You may be utilizing the fastest CDN and have a gracefully scaling service, but if you’re using an API to parse loaded profile images for users signing in that was meant just to effectively serve individuals in the US, all your users from Europe or Asia will have a horrible experience.
