ManageEngine yesterday announced a free website monitoring service named Site24x7 Benchmarks, that lets you benchmark the performance of your web site and compare it with the top players in your industry. The Site24x7 Benchmarks service is available immediately, free of charge.
What is it?
The Site24x7 Benchmarks Service helps any user set performance goals by letting them compare their websites’ performance and availability to the top 20, best-performing websites globally in 20 different industries, including retail, e-commerce and healthcare.
- Displays average response times and availability among global websites
- Provides performance insights from websites in USA, UK, China, France and Germany
- Measures performance across various verticals
The response time captured for each website is the average response time obtained from the previous day’s data, and ranking is based on this average response time. Availability percentages are calculated in similar fashion.
Graphical representation of the availability and response times gives users quick insight into the performance metrics of various websites across geographies.
Why use it?
Every business needs a way to evaluate its performance versus competition. The evaluation keeps the business informed about its performance and how that performance compares to its competition. Site24x7 Benchmarks provides users with a lever for improving performance by revealing how their websites are performing in relation to industry leaders around the world.
Is it Required to be a Site 24×7 user to use Benchmarks?
