I have used this WordPress plugin for enabling CDN for the blog. Easy to configure and good tracking of changes done on CDN.
I have found a list of pages that enable the users to measure time response in different manners. http://gtmetrix.com/ (PDF reports, history data & comparative) http://loadimpact.com/ (redundant users analysis) http://pagespeed.googlelabs.com/ (Page Speed Insights by Google) http://tools.pingdom.com/ http://webwait.com/ (time response measure) http://www.webpagetest.org/ (Web Page Performance Test) Load Impact site offers a very nice service that is … Read more
