Diagnose Performance Issues in Web Pages especially SharePoint

We have came across lot of queries about SharePoint or Web Pages performance issues in our day-to-day professional life.  I was thinking to develop a tool to draw the map of behind the web request which has HTTP route map with multiple components like Load Balancer, Front-End Server(especially which server and it is configurations)  to Database Server. This route map should clearly mention where exactly HTTP request hanging and why it is hanging etc.

I was going through on MSDN and found out that a tool called “Visual Round Trip Analyzer”  – Web page performance visualizer and analyzer. Pretty decent tool to visualize your web page performance and it helps to find out the root cause of the issue.

Here you can check it out in detail.

The Visual Round Trip Analyzer tool helps web developers and testers visualize the download of their page, identify best practices and changes that improve web performance. The network Round-Trip between the client and server(s) is the single biggest impact to web page performance – much greater than server response time. VRTA examines the communications protocol, identifying the causes of excessive round-trips, and recommending solutions. Performance engineers, testers, developers, operations personnel should use VRTA to conduct their web performance analysis.
