It would be very kind if you can explain me in brief what are the steps necessary to do a "performance Test" for a Root/Dedicated-Server or a CDN provider?
What tools (maybe someone knows this by seeing the stats) did Ryan use to do his test: http://blog.ryankearney.com/2009/12/comparing-cdn-performance-part-2/comment-page-1/#comments
What are the "Key Peformance Indicators (KPI)" I should take into consideration and meassure:
- Response Time (Latency??)
- What else?
What are the best and easiest tools to meassure these KPIs?
=>The motivation for my question is, I have to choose a CDN/Dedicated-Server-Provider and one of my absolute favourite companies does not have a Datacenter in the country I live but in a neighbour country. And I want and have to compare the impact this has on the "network-performance" to see if they are nevertheless "as fast and as good" as the providers in my own country.
Thank you very much!!! Jan
