For example, if the DNS lookup time is high, you or your hosting provider might have a problem with your DNS servers.
Understand website performance from an end-user perspective

- Measure complete multi-page workflows simulating an entire user journey including form data submission and user actions through Selenium-based scripts.
- Test your applications before launch or during periods of low traffic and pinpoint problematic components.
- Get alerted to performance problems even in the absence of real user load.
- Ensure that your website is working correctly 24x7 and meeting business goals and SLAs.

With Applications Manager's web performance monitor, track your URL's page size along with the % difference between your previous and current page size.

If you see a huge difference, you might have to analyze what elements have been added, and also if they are absolutely necessary.
