    Tool for IE rendering time

    Hi,
    Our application is web based reporting tool. We have few huge reports. I want to capture the page rendering time only and it should not contain the time for server response. From server logs, we come to know that the server response is taking less time and the presentation layer takes much time. Any freeware tools available for this task?
    Thanks & Regards,
    Palani.

    Not exactly freeware, but...

    A stopwatch, pen and paper represent a fairly low-cost starter kit.

    Pretty hard to skip the server response times when using only a stopwatch.

    Subtract the server time showing in the logs.

    Re: Tool for IE rendering time

    There has got to be a tool to display both server response and rendering time.

    I know HTTPWatch displays everything except rendering time quite nicely.

    And I seem to recall when first looking at HTTPWatch that there were similar tools- one of which may have included rendering time. But I can't recall what they were.

    Anyone?

    Re: Tool for IE rendering time

    I hope there is Joe! I have a teammate who has worked the rendering time for a specific app for the last 3 years. I pity him. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] The approach he devised consists of timing transactions using QTP. Another teammate runs the same transactions in LoadRunner. That produces the logs from which they do the math to get rendering time. This of course is an plus/minus-accuracy chalenge and an awkward and very expensive way to do this.

    I don't think firebug captures the rendering time, does it?

    Re: Tool for IE rendering time

    You want to use javascript to profile the rendering of the page. I am sure there are available profilers, but I dont know one off hand.

    Firebug, Fiddler, etc would not capture rendering times, just response time.

    Re: Tool for IE rendering time

    Well my understanding with rendering time is something like this,

    time taken for browser to interpret HTML+ time taken by borwser to interpret JS+ time taken by browser to display images(could be in any format browser supports) + time taken by browser to interpret CSS.

    plus there are various other technologies involved like PHP,perl etc depending on the application.

    now when i say rendering time,i would mean all these things,browser normally follow top down approach where in suppose if you have some script in the top, it will be evulated first , then other resources following it.There are couple of best coding techniques articles in microsoft site which recommends it.
    there are some articles available based on experiences and research which suggest that JS should be placed outside etc.

    As far as i know complete and accurate rendering time needs involvement from developers as this is infact question best coding standard.
    Please note that browser will render any valid html content but way the content is organised makes huge differences.

    In fact i would suggest that rendering time should also be taken in performance engg projects as it also makes huge differences when under large loads.

    Firebug gives the time taken each of the component without any load,

    i dont think there is any tool which will give in one shot a concrete figure.atleast i am not sure about it.
