MEJHAR: USING INTERNET MEASUREMENT PLATFORMS TO EXAMINE WEB APPLICATION PERFORMANCE AND AVAILABILITY
Saudi Digital Library
Conducting web application performance tests through internet measurement platforms o↵ers visibility into the web content availability and delivery performance from di↵erent regional vantage points. However, achieving this is challenged by the necessity of involving the web browser in conducting the web app performance experiment, which is di�cult to achieve over the existing measurements endpoints. This study proposes a system design, MejHAR, that interfaces with the browser and forwards the tra�c to measurement nodes to collect web page performance metrics at the vantage point. With the challenge of tra�c visibility due to encryption and HTTP/2 multiplexing, the study suggests a mechanism to derive browser metrics from the exchanged tra�c using a data analysis approach.
