Hi,

We are looking for a sensor that can measure the the total loading size of a full web site in kilobytes/megabytes. Is there such a sensor? Please let us know if you need more detail.

Thanks, Silvan

You can use the HTTP Advanced sensor. It measures Bytes received.

It looks like this sensor does load a site, but only gives the size of the initial load. I want to include the load of all components, scripts, images, etc.

Dear Silvan,

Thank you for your knowledge base post.

Jeroen is correct, the HTTP Advanced sensor would be the best approach, however your assumption is also precise, as the sensor is only able to show the loading time and received data from the initial load.
To change the data type from Byte to either KByte or MByte, please open the sensor settings and change the value for "CHANNEL UNIT CONFIGURATION" from "Byte" to your requested display variation.

In addition it might be helpful to have a look at the HTTP Full Web Page sensor as well. The sensor monitors the full download time of a web page including assets such as images etc.

The final goal is to have the size of a full web page load (with all images, javascripts, etc etc) in a graph. So complete size of a given web site (without cache). Would there be any existing sensor that can support it?

Dear Silvan.

I do understand your request. Unfortunately, there is no way to show the actual size of a fully loaded web page. The only possibility right now is the loading time using the HTTP Full Web Page sensor.

There are no plans to implement this feature at the moment. If you wish to learn how we handle feature requests at Paessler please review this link.
