Site Performance functions include highly flexible options for cache handling and tools for generating targeted page performance reports.

Use Cache Clear Settings to control site-wide cache regeneration for Page Index Elements and Custom Elements that display lists based on filters or manual selection. You can optimize for authoring performance, read performance, or both. Use these settings in combination with Stale Cache and Scheduled Job options to obtain the best balance between content freshness and site performance.

You can define your own criteria for what constitutes Good, Fair, and Poor page response times and use that criteria to analyze performance for every page on your site or a subset of pages.

Analyze performance and generate reports on an ad hoc basis or as a scheduled job, at intervals that make sense for your site. Because these jobs can be very resource-intensive, depending on the number of pages analyzed, it's often best to run them during off-peak periods.

Each analysis generates a report that includes details on rendering times for each page, as well as response times for each Element and the reason for dynamic rendering, where applicable. Use these reports to identify and troubleshoot problem pages and Elements.

CommonSpot maintains a record for each generated report in analysis history. Use this history to conveniently review and compare performance reports. You can specify the number of days to keep these reports.

Once you analyze results, the following can help you optimize performance. CommonSpot provides a powerful set of tools and configuration options to minimize page rendering time:
