SpeedFactor Results

  • (7, 30, 60, 90, 120): Specifies the number of results (in days or hours) to show in the evolution charts. You can choose to display results for the last 7, 30, 60, 90, or 120 days or hours (if you select “hourly” in the above dropdown, then values will represent hours, otherwise days).

SpeedFactor Audit Settings

  1. SpeedFactor will fall back to HTTP 1.1 if HTTP 2 can’t be negotiated with the server.
    • Use HTTP 2.0 (default, recommended): Prefers to use HTTP/2 for faster and more efficient communication with the server.
    • Use HTTP 1.1: Falls back to HTTP/1.1 if HTTP/2 negotiation fails.
  2. SpeedFactor will use TLS 1.3 or later if your cURL version is equal to or higher than 7.52.0 and OpenSSL was built with TLS 1.3 support.
    • Use TLS 1.2 (default): Uses TLS 1.2 for secure communication.
    • Use TLS 1.3: Prefers to use TLS 1.3 for enhanced security and performance if the server and cURL support it.
  3. In some rare cases, the audit will not work with IPv6. Switch to IPv4 to debug.
    • Use IPv6 (default, recommended): Uses IPv6 for communication with the server, which is recommended for modern networks.
    • Use IPv4: Switches to IPv4 if IPv6 is causing issues with the audit process.

SpeedFactor Notifications

  • Allows you to specify an email address to receive notifications whenever an audit runs. This can help you stay informed about any performance issues or improvements.
