Today we announced our official support for the HTTP Archive project. Inspired by Brewster Kahle and the Internet Archive which collects and permanently stores the Web’s digitized content, the HTTP Archive is a permanent repository of web performance information such as size of pages, failed requests, and technologies utilized. This performance information allows us to see trends in how the Web is built and provides a common data set from which to conduct web performance research.
The HTTP Archive was created by Steven Souders in early 2011. When first launched, the HTTP Archive monitored just 20,000 of the top websites. Today, the project will grow to monitor 1 million sites, gathering information such as size of pages, failed requests, and technologies utilized. This performance information highlights trends in how the Web is built and provides a common data set from which to conduct web performance research.
Today Steve said “New Relic is a leader in web application performance management. The HTTP Archive is a great complement to this work, providing a record of performance information from today’s top websites. Through their support of the HTTP Archive, New Relic is helping to raise awareness about the benefits of web performance optimization.”
