Testing Image Caching On Load Balancer
      #717082 - 09/26/12 12:03 PM

We're about to implement image caching on our Load balancer for our enterprise level website.

I've been asked to test the impact/effectiveness of this feature, but I'm not sure how. Any assistance folks can provide for a testing the effectiveness of this feature would be helpful.

My initial thoughts are:
a) test page load times before and after enablement.
b) ensure all images served

Am I missing something? I have no developer background, so I'm often relying on the devs to tell me what to test.

- web server resources, before/after
- page load times under varying levels of load, before/after.
- throughput under varying levels of load, before/after.

also consider testing the image serving on it's own, instead of part of a page load.

Thanks for the prompt reply! I didn't expect one so soon!

I've already done the before's, so now I just need to do the afters. I'm so glad I found this site.
