I have a site that uses webservices and I need to measure server turnaround. I am doing this because the host we have now is too slow and I don't want to go to a different host unless it is an improvement.
I want to measure how long it is taking to return a specific size packet that is being transmitted from our site to our vendors site. I then want to measure the same response time from a different host that I am considering switching to. This server would do the same thing and send the same size packet to our vendor too.
Currently, my host is HostGator.
