Salsa’s three-day performance audit covers:
Day 1: Traffic/visitor analysis, caching analysis, module configuration analysis, server- and client-side performance configuration review and performance test script preparation.
Day 2: Execute performance tests, analyse data and identify performance deficiencies/bottlenecks.
Day 3: Report, recommended limitations with high level costings.
We use tools like Blazemeter, JMeter and XHProf to provide performance data.
Cost: $6,240 +GST (for three-day performance audit)
Our engagement process is outlined below:
Review questionnaire or brief: Agency to complete a light questionnaire (or send Salsa a high level project brief) reflecting basic requirements and/or project key business drivers.
Intake and alignment: Salsa conducts a free 30-45 minute intake phone call to align on scope, expectations and overall engagement requirements based on the questionnaire or brief.
Setup: Environment setup and performance assessment tooling.
Architecture audit: Conduct architecture, caching and config audit against performance architecture best practices.
Code/config audit: Conduct (lightweight) config, module/code and client-side scripting audit against coding/config performance best practices.
Database audit support: Optionally support and collaborate with Finance on application level parameters influencing poor database performance.
Tests scripts: Prepare, execute and monitor performance load and stress test scripts.
Measure: Measure user and system performance metrics and benchmark against optional performance SLA and/or ‘common sense’.
Identify: Isolate key performance bottlenecks and/or deficiencies.
Report: Details performance best practice audit findings and performance test audit findings.
During a performance audit, you’ll receive:
Performance implementation report grouped by each key area: architecture, code/config/scripts and database
Performance test report highlighting scope of load tests and results
Issue identification and/or potential areas of attention classified by a criticality indicator (critical, high, medium, low and okay)
Recommendations and/or suggested remediations
High level costings on implementing suggested recommendations/remediations
- An understanding of what’s causing your site’s performance issues with suggested recommendations
