When a browser requests a web page and related web resources (JavaScripts, images, stylesheets, ...), it sends HTTP requests to the different servers on which these resources reside. A request to a web resource is called a "hit".

The Kadiska platform distinguishes three types of hits:

  • The "navigation" hit is the one that triggers the initial web page request.
  • A "resource" hit triggers the query of all types of resources, with the exception of the "navigation" hit itself.
  • A "request" hit is a subpart of the "resource" hit category. It only includes requests initiated by the following initiator types: xmlhttprequest, fetchand beacon. This type of hit is critical in the context of "Single Page Applications".

There may be many hits per page view since an HTML page can contain multiple files. The "Top Pages" table in the "Scope Analysis" section provides the average number of hits per page.

In the "Resources analysis" dashboard, the number of resources per page is provided by MIME type (see example below), URL and initiator type.

Final, the information about the number of API calls (requests) is provided in all tables and views of the "API Calls Scope Analysis" and "API Calls Processing Analysis" dashboards.
The following screenshot shows the number of API calls per continent.

Having a clear view on the number of hits occurrences and their performances can guide you determine the priorities of investigations.
