Since early this year ive been working on and off on an analytics script for personal use (may make it commercial service … dunno) . Due to time constraints i haven’t been coding for last 2 - 3 months, but now am ready to start work on it again.
Patrick’s post was a major encouragement re-affirming that there is a market for such services.
But the question is how can one really measure the performance?
Boomerang by Yahoo helps solve this by setting timestamps in cookies and checks that on the next pageload, but this helps measure basepage time only if there is > 1 pageview/session. The bounced sessions wont be measured.
Just wondering if there is a more elegant way to monitor the complete pageload time? Anyone have any interesting tricks up their sleeves?
I promise to give free beta access (provided I have something launchable) to people who can point me in the right direction
