Load Storm is designed to simulate real users visiting the site, logging in and browsing. It tests uncached performance.


K6 is designed to test cached performance by repeatedly requesting the homepage.


WebPageTest fully loads the homepage and records how long it takes from 12 different locations around the world.


Uptime is monitored by two companies: HetrixTools and Uptime Robot. A self hosted monitor was also run in case there was a major discrepancy between the two third party monitors.


WPPerformanceTester performs two benchmarks. One is a WordPress (WP Bench) and the other a PHP benchmark. WP Bench measures how many WP queries per second and higher tends to be better (varies considerably by architecture). PHP Bench performs a lot of computational and some database operations which are measured in seconds to complete. Lower PHP Bench is better. WP Bench is red in the chart, PHP Bench is blue.
