Example

Let’s assume we have online store which relies on CDN where some of portal images are placed. We wanna measure is this particular CND satisfies our claims to a speed of load.

All we need is to add Network watcher configured to measure load time of images for this CND.

Image URLs has next format:

http://1ba0.cdndomain.com/abc/1234567/image_1.png
http://f4d4.cdndomain.net/kh3/1234567/image_2.png

In this case URL mask for Watcher have to be:

*.cdndomain.*.png
