HttpWatch Basic Edition 9.0.13 DemoHttpWatch Basic Edition is a powerful tool designed to analyze the HTTP traffic and to provide you with detailed information. It enables you to test and optimize the performance of your website in order to improve your web-based services. The program is integrated in the interface of Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox in order to be easily accessed when you load a certain webpage. The captured data is displayed as a panel in the main window of the browser which allows you to view the information while you are browsing the website. The main goal of the application is to capture HTTP and SPDY data directly from the browser and to display the information in real time. It can handle headers, status codes, timings and other elements in order to provide you with comprehensive statistics. You can visualize the events in the time charts generated by the program and determine which are the issues that have a negative impact on the website performance. Request time charts are also available for measuring the DNS lookup time. If you are using this tool for identifying performance issues, you can take advantage of the automatically generated warnings. These messages highlight the potential security, performance and functionality problems that can negatively influence the experience of the visitors. All the information available in the browser panel can be saved as a log file which can be opened and analyzed by other users. This enables you to analyze the captured data on other computers and to easily exchange logs with other colleagues or business partners. HttpWatch provides you with useful tools for capturing the traffic information for your websites in order to identify and fix performance or security issues.
HttpWatch Basic Edition integrates with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox to provide unrivaled levels of HTTP monitoring, without the need for separately configured proxies or network sniffers. To view details about the Internet traffic, the requests and the responses you just need to browse a webpage. It even shows interactions between the browser and its cache. Each HTTP transaction can be examined to see the values of headers, cookies, query strings and other HTTP related data. Commercial web sites often use technologies such as HTTP compression, SSL encryption and chunked encoding to provide the best levels of security and performance. HttpWatch works with these technologies to provided a detail view of HTTP activity within Internet Explorer. HttpWatch has two components; a plug-in used to collect, view and save HTTP traffic within IE or Firefox, and a standalone log file viewer know as HttpWatch Studio. Note: The Basic Edition can be used to exchange HTTP log files with your customers and suppliers.  
Here are some key features of “HttpWatch Basic Edition”: Records HTTPHttpWatch captures a wide range of HTTP related data including: · Headers and Cookies · URLs and method (e.g. GET, POST, etc) · Parameters sent in a query strings and POST requests · HTTP status codes and errors · Redirections · The network size of the HTTP response including headers · Chunked encoding · Decrypts HTTPS Traffic · Secure browser sessions that use the HTTPS protocol are displayed in their unencrypted form in HttpWatch, making it easy to debug banking and finance applications. · Integrates With Internet Explorer Starting HttpWatch is simple and easy. An extra toolbar button is added to Internet Explorer allowing HttpWatch to be opened and started with two mouse clicks: · Compact & Comprehensive Log Files · The log file format used by HttpWatch results in much smaller files that other formats such as XML and contains everything that is displayed in HttpWatch. This includes binary format files and streams, compressed content and network information. If your customers send you HttpWatch log files you will get a full and accurate representation of the HTTP activity in their browser. · Includes a Standalone Log File Viewer · A standalone log file viewer allows HttpWatch .hwl files to be viewed and modified outside of Internet Explorer. · Summary of Recorded Traffic The Summary view can be used at any time to quickly display data about the whole log, a single page or a number of selected items. The following types of data are shown: · Performance – this tab shows how long the requests took to complete and can be used to accurately measure page download time. It also shows how much network bandwidth was used and the savings achieved from using HTTP compression · Status Codes – this tab records how many times each HTTP status code was received · Errors – any network or HTTP level errors are displayed on this tab. Double clicking on an error finds the first request that caused the error. Pressing F3 then takes you to the next request that also failed in the same way. · Grouping Of Requests By Page · Requests are grouped by page as shown below. Each page group can be separately expanded or collapsed to aid navigation through large log files. · Real-Time Page Level Time Charts Page level time charts are displayed and updated in real-time as you record requests in HttpWatch. This gives a direct, visual indication of how a site is performing – allowing common problems to be diagnosed at a glance: · Request Level Time Charts · The time chart displayed for each request is broken down into a number of colored sections to show network level timings such as DNS lookup and TCP connects. · Collect Log Files from Customers and Users By using HttpWatch Basic Edition, you and your customers can record and view log files without having to purchase extra HttpWatch licenses.

If you are already running automated tests, you can integrate HttpWatch and record HTTP level information during your tests. The recorded data that then be checked for certain types of configuration and performance problems (e.g. HTTP compression is not enabled). · The ability to access data in an HttpWatch log file makes it possible to develop custom reports and automate repetitive tasks.
