WING: A Web Probing, Visualization, and Performance Analysis Service
An open network service Wing has been developed for the purpose of Web probing, visualization and performance analysis from the user perspective. Wing downloads target page to the service location and returns to the user a page showing HTTP timeline chart and both detailed and aggregated information about web page downloading. Contrary to other systems that use their own Web clients developed for particular visualization tools only, Wing supports real-life studies as it uses a real Web browser. Wing employs all features of HTTP/1.1 and can process scripts so we can automate the usage of the service and apply it to the advanced Internet measurements.
