I'm building a site where load speed is of the absolute essence. Now, I have a dedicated server on the West Coast, which most of the time loads the site extremely quick, but sometimes takes a few seconds longer, which is a problem. Now, it is a possibility that these instances are caused by my local internet connection. Is there any service I can use to thoroughly test my dedicated server over the period of, say, a week? I guess I'm thinking of a service which pings my server every few seconds so I can see if there are indeed any slow periods? I saw at least one similar service (uptrends.com) but from what I see they only tell you whether the ping totally failed or not. What I need to see is how FAST the server replies.
I think pingdom logs the time it took to complete each request.
