Microsoft Releases Free Web Networking Tool: Visual Round Trip Analyzer

 
Microsoft’s Visual Round Trip Analyzer tool helps web developers and testers visualize the download of their page, identify best practices and changes that improve web performance. The network Round-Trip between the client and server(s) is the single biggest impact to web page performance – much greater than server response time. VRTA examines the communications protocol, identifying the causes of excessive round-trips, and recommending solutions. Performance engineers, testers, developers, operations personnel should use VRTA to conduct their web performance analysis.
 
VRTA sits on top of NetMon 3.2 which is also released publically for free. VRTA abstracts the use of Netmon so the user does not need to know the details of Netmon but can simply click to start/stop the capture. VRTA has three primary features 1) a main chart which displays http traffic in 3 dimensions, 2) an All Files view that shows critical measurements for each file loading, and 3) an Analysis report that indicates which file transfers are exceptions to best practice rules.
