Check the Health of Your Magento Site

Posted on 5.21.2015

With almost 10 percent of the entire Internet using Magento, its retailers have likely wondered about how to ensure their sites hosted in this environment are performing like they should.

Recently, Magento and the New Relic software analytics platform announced a new extension that gives merchants visibility into their hosting environment health and application performance, so they can quickly identify the root cause of issues and consider new ideas for improving site performance. 

“New Relic is proud to partner with Magento to help its customers build better software and make better decisions through data,” said John Gray, New Relic SVP business development. “New Relic’s software analytics platform has already proven successful for many of Magento’s customers and this extension will help provide even more retailers with a crucial lens into app performance and business data.”

Along with the New Relic extension there are others that help merchants improve their e-commerce site’s performance. 

For starters, if a merchant is finding that his or her Magento site is running slowly (read: Best Business Resources for Mastering Page Speed) then the merchant may want to consider an extension like the Full Page Cache Performance Booster, which improves website performance by deflating the size of the JavaScript code on a website and as a result lowers the server load (meaning a server can handle more visitors at once). The cost is $99. 

Before improving their website’s performance, however, merchants may want to download a free extension like Eddie Spradley’s Performance Report, which helps identify areas for improvement. 

Finally, merchants who want a second set of eyes on their sites should consider the free AlertSite extension, which offers Magento users a service to measure store availability and performance that’s completely integrated with the Magento platform.
