The second rule reduces the total number of images the browser is required to fetch by combining the images within a page into, in some cases, a single file. JavaScript Optimization As noted in the beginning of this chapter, we can optimize JavaScript. Here are three rules YSlow uses to check JavaScript: • Place JavaScript at the bottom of the HTML. • Minify JavaScript. • Make JavaScript external. Once again, we look to optimize the size of the response as well as the method in which the browser renders the content for the user.

Figure 1–7. com/ with ten concurrent users for 20 seconds The results in this simulation point to a decrease in performance when ten concurrent users request the web document over a period of 20 seconds. 8 seconds). AB Gotchas There are a few caveats when using ab. If you look back at the command you just executed, you’ll notice a backward slash at the end of the domain name. The backslash is required if you are not requesting a specific document within the domain. ab can also be blocked by some web servers due to the user-agent value it passes to the web server, so you might receive no data in some cases.

The side-byside comparison is shown in Figures 1–12 and 1–13. Figure 1–12. Results for ab test of five concurrent periods of ten seconds Figure 1–13. Results for ab test using Keep-Alive 23 CHAPTER 1 ■ BENCHMARKING TECHNIQUES Comparing both figures and referencing the Requests per second, Total min, and Total max, we can clearly see that using Keep-Alive drastically increases the number of requests per second the web server can satisfy and also increases the response time. With a solid foundation of the measuring tools we will use to rate our success in optimizing our code, it’s time to start optimizing for performance.
