Webmetrics, a provider of Web performance
testing and monitoring services, today announced the general availability of
SiteAnalysis, a hosted testing service that automates the process of validating
critical Web site elements, including page load performance, internal and
external links, domain names, DNS servers and SSL certificates. Designed to help
companies maintain error-free, high performing Web sites, SiteAnalysis
represents the newest offering among Webmetrics’ growing suite of services for
Web performance management.
“Large, dynamic Web sites with multiple content sources are far more
susceptible to broken links and other issues that can hinder site performance
and the overall end-user experience,” said Tim Drees, CEO, Webmetrics.
“SiteAnalysis empowers businesses with an easy-to-use, cost-effect solution for
scheduled or ad hoc site testing, allowing companies to both perform and compete
more effectively online.”

hour, or as little as once per week. Users define testing perimeters and
reporting preferences via Webmetrics’ Web-based control panel. SiteAnalysis
