Tech Update: August 2011 Site Performance Report

Aug 31, 2011

by sethwalker

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

As I mentioned in my last post, we’re going to share some of the measurements we’ve been taking in regard to site performance. In this post, we’ll focus on one particular aspect: the time it takes for our servers to assemble a page.

Page generation time is an important metric to look at for a number of reasons. For one, it is the only piece of the content delivery puzzle that is completely under our control. There are a good many systems that sit between a visitor to our site and our servers, including your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the backbone routers of the Internet. While there are some services we can use to help mitigate connection issues between your browser and our servers, we cannot eliminate them entirely. While the page is being cobbled together on our servers, we have a lot more control over how we spend our time. Secondly, the amount of time on our servers is a minimum threshold for how fast we can get the page into your browser in a usable state. As we’ll talk about in another post, the majority of the time it takes for the browser to fully display the page happens after it has been delivered, but it certainly can’t be any less than the time it takes to download the page in the first place.

Every one of our pages is dynamically generated for every request — they’re all unique! And one of a kind! Each page for a signed-in member contains some personalized information, such as how many items are in your Activity Feed and how many unread convos you have. If you are looking at a shop or listing page, we must decide whether or not you have favorited that shop or listing. Some pages, like the home page and Activity Feed, are highly personalized. In general, the more information displayed on a page, and the more unique the information on a page is, the more time it will take to assemble that page.

We can calculate page generation time for any page on the site, but in order to focus on the pages that matter most, we’ve been paying close attention to a few key pages that are especially core to the Etsy experience. The pages we’ll be reporting on today are listings, shops, search, the home page and member profile, and are all for signed-in members only.

The numbers in the following chart are the number of milliseconds required to generate each type of page for the average and 95th percentile of visitors on Tuesday, August 2, a day that was pretty representative of the average weekday for Etsy.

On average, our servers can generate a listing page in a little over a blink of an eye, and for the great majority of requests in less than two eye blinks. That’s great, because the listing page is by far the most frequently viewed page on the site.

As you can see, the home page for a signed-in member takes more time to generate than any other in the list: just over a second, on average. It’s highly personalized with Taste Test suggestions and other items you might like. While we feel this content is valuable to members and worth some extra time to build, the time to generate homepage currently falls outside of the limit of what we feel is acceptable. We’ll be targeting this page specifically for improvement over the coming weeks.

We’ll be back in a few months to give you an update on these numbers and to dive into another area of site performance. See you then!

    As a left-brained person who works with Web design, i have been very impressed with the amount and variety of dynamic content that is generated for each seller/user in no time at all. The quick response time/download speed is so deceptive - it all looks so simple and effortless. There is a lot of planning, designing and technical know-how that goes into making it look so simple and easy. Nice work, Etsy techs.

    Lovely photo. If only it was available to buy on Etsy.. oh hey! It is! From me! http://www.etsy.com/listing/80597397/new-york-photo-hurricane-irene But on the topic of the post: I've wondered why you have both 'Taste test' recommendations above the treasury and 'You might like' below it. They often seem to overlap. I know the latter is more a feed from people I have faved before but it's not highly relevant to me. Perhaps you could offer users the chance to decide whether they want certain features on the homepage....

    Thanks for the update, Seth. I did notice that the pages do load a lot faster. I've also noticed that I can now load higher resolution photos, unlike before when I'd get an annoying message telling me the files were too big! Props to you and your team.

  • sparksoffire

    sparksoffire said 7 years ago

    I'm doing some guessing on where the issues are with the page load times for the front page. The Treasury is cached and only changes once an hour (with updates when / if something sells), so shouldn't be a great drag. It's the three constantly changing areas which likely lead to the issues: "Items Matching Your Taste", "You Might Like", and "Recently Listed". I *never* look at the last of these and I'd be happy to see it disappear - but I can imagine that others like seeing new things and that there's a desire at Etsy to promote the newest content. "You Might Like" is interesting but rarely interests me. Of course, you'll know from click-through stats how often this is being used and how often it leads to sales but for me, you could drop that. Taste test results are interesting, if only for making treasuries. It's nice having them up there but I know they annoy others. So what this comes down to for me is what I said in the earlier comment up there: customise. You could drop "Recently Listed" and "You Might Like" for me. Or, have them there ready as something I could uncover if I wished, and *then* make the calls and load them in. Others might not be interested in Taste Test results. The ability to decide what I want on the homepage would reduce my load times and reduce drag on your servers and databases having to calculate what I "Might Like", for instance, when I really don't care about that.

  • mazedasastoat

    mazedasastoat said 7 years ago

    I agree with sparksoffire, if our personalised versions of the frontpage were able to be customised to suit ourselve then many of us would cut out the parts we don't need or never look at. Not knowing anything about the techie side of it, I'm not sure if it would help with the timing though... Anyhow, you guys are AWESOME & thank you so much for putting in all the hard work so we sellers can actually sell enough stuff to pay the bills! :-)

  • Mclovebuddy

    Mclovebuddy said 7 years ago

    that's quite fantastic. i'm not sure i'm really down with with highly personalized fp - the tt results, the "you might like" (and, though not on the same page, but still relevent, "new items from your fav shops"). there's too much social engineering going on there and i seriously doubt that it's all algorithm generated just like the fp treasuries.

    Pretty cool. Let me know if you're interested in a Mobile HAR report of your web site. I just ran a test in real time south of Denver, Co using Sprints network. It took 14.36 seconds to load the page. Not bad for 3/4MB of data. Cheers, Peter 3P Mobile

It was interesting. I wish to add to some one elses suggestion as to things that annoy and take time on the signed in home page. The taste test that I flat dislike and it'associated You Might Like which I don't.

    I'd be more than willing to let go of taste test and things you might like on my home page. Move them to the activity page if you must, and get rid of one of them if you can. They seem redundant. A less cluttered homepage loads faster and is more appealing. Two pluses...

    Very interesting & those shades make me smile! I'm thrilled with the load time, but would like to add my voice to those who want control over the more dynamic aspects of the front page. At times I really prefer a less cluttered front page, while at others I'm very interested in what the taste test & 'you might like' sections hold. With those functions turned off for a number of people at a time, I'd imagine load times overall would be reduced. Thanks much for the info, Seth, looking forward to the next installment!

    SpiceofLifeDesigns said 7 years ago

    Thanks for the insight - Just wondering, does google still penalize websites based on load times? I'll add my voice to those that would not mind seeing 'you might like' disappear... it's so redundant of the shops I've already added to my favorites that I'd rather just see the new items from favorites in my activity feed instead. The one feature of 'you might like' that I DO like is the ability to remove an item if we don't really like it! I really wish there was something similar on the taste test results - which I enjoy, but would prefer to have moved below the FP treasury where 'you might like' is now.

  • SimplyMaco

    SimplyMaco said 7 years ago

    It means: The little gnomes in the big Etsy machines have to run around checking your account to see if you hearted an item or shop, then they go tell the head gnome "ok, here's what we found" and the head gnome builds a page tailored to you. Those numbers measure how long the gnomes take. The part that Seth is saying they can't control because of "your ISP" and "the backbone" is how long it takes the dragons to fly the page to you. And the part about how long it takes your browser to display is how long the elves in your computer take painting a picture of the page onto your screen after the dragons bring it over. Get it?

    In ECommeerceBytes (Ina Steiner)... Etsy published some site performance data in a blog post yesterday and said it would be concentrating on improving the page-load time of its home page over the coming weeks. The accompanying chart shows page-load times for listings, shops, search, the home page and member profile - the time it takes for each of the pages to laod for members who are signed-in to the site. The numbers in the chart are the number of milliseconds required to generate each type of page for the average and 95th percentile of visitors on Tuesday, August 2nd. August 2nd? A month ago and way before this relevancy criteria was put in place. Etsy will have less sales and less income for the month of August, I am wiling to bet on that. Seth Walker, one of Esy's software

    400ms is a bit high for the back-end time (at least from what I'm used to seeing, even for highly dynamic sites). 100-200ms is usually a good number on traditional architectures but with SSD's, newer systems and asynchronous servers, <50ms averages are achievable.

That is only the tip of my questions. :) Sorry but those numbers don't tell me much as they are, and curious as to the ROI on it, especially considering other areas of site performance that might need improvement.

    Senior systems integrator here. Your performance tests mean precisely nothing if you can't get five 9s for availability. You claim you're big on metrics. There's only one that matters: uptime. This is the problem with companies that do "fun" things and worry about image. You should drop the kids running the show, and get some old school systems engineers to fix your servers. Otherwise, as a service, your cool blog items mean NOTHING.

    Etsy has always had pretty good performance, in my experience, as far as image and page load speed. Other than some slow searches like 3 years ago, I've never had enough of a problem with the performance of the site to feel like we need a report on it. Personally, I'm much more concerned with the software side of things here.

    Thanks Seth. Not up on the Teckno stuff but it sure sounds like you are doing an awsome job of looking after us all. Am just a newbie so still finding my way around. Feel a little bit like Little Bo Peep Who Lost Her Sheep!!

    I'm satisfied with how quickly pages load. How difficult would it be to make it possible to rotate a pic on the page we fill in when listing an item?
