Do a get on the web page and time it. Well it can be complex. What specifically, do you want to achive? Google browser stopwatch there's hundreds of sites that'll time a get (including all the inline stuff).

Best of luck.

Hello,

Thank you very much for your help.

I am looking something like

Code: Select all

time wget google.com
but I am not sure if it is an accurate stat for this kind of load time check for end users.

It probably won't, as it'll exclude the network latency to the client, all the rendering and any client side stuff (like JavaScript). Have you looked into firebug for firefox? It has load timer for components so you can see that you (for example) jQuery.js is 100 times as long than (say) index.html

Regards
