Using a Private Instance for a production environment

Hello friends,

My company is looking at performance testing and I am developing some systems to do some testing on. I was curious if anyone could point me in the direction of some documentation, or can explain to me how to use WebPageTest for a production environment. I understand that the timing metrics will be useless, but I am curious about the size of the webpages and their breakdown.

Any help on this would be appreciative!
