Meetup: Performance Testing HTTP/2

QASource sponsors The East Bay Agilistry & QA Meetup Group. The goal of the meetup group is to create a community where software engineers and developers can meet once a month to learn new skills, build on current skill sets as well as network with other business professionals.

We had a wonderful meetup titled, "Performance Testing HTTP/2," by Scott Moore.

Scott’s presentation focused on the new HTTP version 2 and how to approach performance testing for a site optimized for HTTP/2 instead of HTTP 1.x.

The members of the East Bay Agilistry & QA Meetup Group enjoyed Scott’s presentation and asked intriguing questions.

  • Which type of compression algorithm is used by HTTP/2 for reducing the size of Request and Response Headers?
  • What is the major difference between the Response sizes of HTTP/2 requests as compared to a simple HTTP 1.x request?
  • Which open-source and commercial tools are available for testing the performance of HTTP/2 enabled web applications?
  • Are there any security enhancements in HTTP/2 over HTTP 1.x?
  • How can a user identify that a web page is running over HTTP/2 in a browser?
  • Are there any browser based plugins available for analyzing the HTTP/2 page load performance of a web page/application?

To hear Scott’s answers to these questions, watch the full meetup below.
