Difference in Download/Upload Size Between Versions 6 and 7

Recommended Posts

Guest Peeticus

Hello, I had been using the 30-day demo of version 6 up until today and had created 5 or 6 different tests. I had written down the results of each of them. After upgrading to a licensed copy and version 7 just this afternoon, my tests now have very different results when I use the Load Page Elements option. My assumption is that the new version is using the browser (IE) caching mechanism, whereas version 6 did not? I don't know if it will help any since you don't know exactly how my tests work, but here are the #'s:

 

V6

Time: 7:10

Pages: 134

Hits: 3258

KB Up: 2980

KB Down: 35704

Load Page Elements On

All Pages and Sessions (1 session) were successful.

Simulated Connection Speed: T1

 

V7

Time: 4:04

Pages: 134

Hits: 3258

KB Up: 3608

KB Down: 15086

Load Page Elements On

All Pages and Sessions (1 session) were successful.

Simulated Connection Speed: T1

 

 

 

Note that if I turn off the Load Page Elements option, my results are similar enough that they are acceptable without further explanation. It's only a comparison of Load Page Elements runs between V6 and V7 that concerned me. Thanks for any info you can offer.

I don't see any big difference between the two versions. I'd rather use the latest version if I were you.
