Troubleshooting a Customer’s Performance Problem with HttpWatch Basic Edition

calendarSeptember 10, 2008 in HttpWatch , Optimization

Jake Howlett at CodeStore has written an interesting post about how he used HttpWatch Basic Edition to diagnose a customer’s performance problem:

To record the HTTP transaction log I had them install the free Basic Edition of HttpWatch. All they had to do then was start recording, open the application, open a new form, open a new document, edit the document, save the document etc and then stop recording. The result is a .HWL file which I can then open in my version of HttpWatch’s “Studio”. I can then see all headers, response code and the amount of time taken for all transactions involved.

The Professional Edition of HttpWatch allowed him to look at the customer’s log file and find the cause of the performance problem by looking at the HTTP response headers returned by the server.
