New Start Page

The most obvious change in the release is the completely redesigned start page. The purpose of the redesign is to make it easier for you to access the powerful tools of Apica WebPerformance monitor and stay updated as enhancements and updates become available.

Check Types -DNS

DNS (Domain Name Servers) are working in the background to connect domain names with IP addresses. Most look at DNS as something that “just should work” but, it doesn’t always. If you have a business critical web application you should be monitoring your DNS. Now it’s possible with Apica WebPerformance.

New Full Page Waterfall Graph

The Waterfall Graph for full page checks has been redesigned in order to make it easier to drill down, analyze and pinpoint performance problems.  The top of the graph shows load times by domain, which is useful  if you depend on content and service from other sites (such as a serving and Google analytics tracking scripts). The bottom part shows the load times for your own content.

10 Last Runs Summary

Together with the waterfall graph we’ve introduced a summary of results of the last ten runs of a check. If you have a large variation in performance, problems come and go, this can be particularly useful for troubleshooting.

Comparison of 3G Operators

We can now run checks using all 3G operators in Sweden. By running checks on all operators and comparing results you will see how your content and services are experience by mobile broadband users in Sweden.

New Agents in China and Brazil

We’re constantly updating our agent network and since the last release we have added Sao Paulo, Brazil and Beijing China
