Detailed overview of the Akamai network presented by one of the co-founders. I like some of the tracking processes they use of network traffic, server issues/locations, etc...
 
Been wanting to share this for days, slick video! #Akamai is responsible for ~15-30% of global #webTraffic. http://akamai.me/1L1Rp9W #Networking #NOCC

Interesting article by Tammy Everts
Google is experimenting with a red "slow" label on search results pages. The label warns people that your site is unacceptably slow.

Hi,

I recently had a chat with zach about his font face event script, and boom, here comes the article ! :D
Could someone give a feedback on the differences, pros and cons of each script (zach fontfaceonload and bram font face observer), please ?

Ok, it's basically the same functionality, but with the observer you can specify the weight of the font you're observing, so the tuning is more precise.

How to check memory usage by PHP Script

http://studentduniya.in/check-memory-usage-php-script/
How to check memory usage/consumption by php script. To check memory usage, PHP provides in-built function memory_get_usage(). This function returns the amount of memory allocated to PHP.

Hey all,

Building a web cluster with Keepalived, LVS, Varnish, Redis, multiple Apache, MySQL & PHP-FPM nodes.
Just trying to decide on the filesystem.
On each Apache node I'd like to have the same vhosts content replicated between all Apache nodes.
I'm trying to choose between good 'ol rsync/crontab, NFS, DRBD or I'm wondering if Something like Ceph would be usable in such scenario.

This is not going to be a client's setup by the way, but my own, just to do tests and benchmarks on and gain experience.

Looking forward to your ideas.
Thanks in advance!

Do you guys think that deploying a web app on Google Compute Engine will help increase the performance? 

It won’t be false if I’ll say Google runs the internet. Therefore, it always tries to keep things speedy and you can experience the same on its infrastructure too.

In terms of speed, cloud hosting experts rate GCE amongst the top tier. Just look at the following network performance stats reported by +Server Density

I looking for a community feedback as we are recently in beta with our GCE integration at +Cloudways.  

Here is what we have built if you want to test: http://www.cloudways.com/en/managed-google-compute-engine.php

What is your definition of "help increase the performance"?
Who exactly are those "cloud hosting experts" you reference?
This is an extremely broad and complicated topic. There are 100s if not 1000s of various metrics to measure and consider in various combinations. Cloud performance measurement is a separate field in its own.

That screenshot shows network performance between servers within the same datacenter. That tells you nothing about internet connectivity performance, cross-datacenter performance, packet loss rate, network latency/jitter, cpu performance, cpu-steal rate, memory performance, instance storage performance, attached storage performance, etc etc etc.

congratulations. You wholesale stole this article from http://girlvscode.tumblr.com/post/92797012864/the-ultimate-guide-to-becoming-a-web-front-end
And more than that, it has nothing to do with "Web Performance" field.

It would be a great help. 

Thanks.

www.scriptcompress.com/JavaScript-Packers.htm - This web based app can compress HTML or JavaScript source code smaller than self extracting ZIP, but the best advantage is it is client side and self extracts & runs in JavaScript on practically any web browser. This may not seem like a big deal, but many big companies have to pay for more servers to cover the extra CPU usage to extract to clients that do not know how, this can skip those costs with more work. Also, many blog and web hosting companies (even sites that allow you to customize a page's look & feel) do not provide compression so we can post things that are already compressed.

This is a work in progress. Many people laughed at me when I first started it and told me it wasn't worth my time. Maybe they are right? I just know I am obsessed a bit now with it and you can make you own judgments...

To see some of my tests & results: +JavaScript Packer

If you use a CDN, you'd rather drop the load balancer and use the CDN DNS service to load-balance your service between 2 DC location. Better perf, more flexibility and lower cost.
