## Overview

This tool is designed to allow you to measure and display the 'Time To First Byte' (ttfb) for a given url. It can also help identify bottlenecks or latency issues that might be causing slow responses.

We also provide a simple [bash version](https://github.com/PlatformEngineersToolbox/time-to-first-byte) if you prefer that to a python package.

## Installation

```shell
pip install wolfsoftware.ttfb
```

## Usage

```
usage: ttfb [-h] [-d] [-v] [-V] [-m | -f] [-c COUNT] -u URL

Display the time-to-first-byte for any given url.

flags:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -d, --debug           Very noisy (default: False)
  -v, --verbose         Verbose output - show scan results as they come in (default: False)
  -V, --version         Show program's version number and exit.

exclusive flags:
  -m, --minimal         Show minimal set of timing values. (default: False)
  -f, --full            Show full set of timing values. (default: False)

optional:
  -c COUNT, --count COUNT
                        How many times to test [1-25] (default: 1)

required:
  -u URL, --url URL     The URL to test (default: None)
```

## Results Output

### Repeated Connection Test

It is also possible to specify how many connections to make when testing by adding the -c flag. This can be combined with the existing output flags (-m and -f)

## Response Times: The 3 Important Limits

Short note for your information.

* **0.1 second** – is about the limit for having the user feel that the system is reacting instantaneously, meaning that no special feedback is necessary except to display the result;
* **1.0 second** – is about the limit for the user’s flow of thought to stay uninterrupted, even though the user will notice the delay. Normally, no special feedback is necessary during delays of more than 0.1 but less than 1.0 second, but the user does lose the feeling of operating directly on the data;
* **10 seconds** – is about the limit for keeping the user’s attention focused on the dialogue. For longer delays, users will want to perform other tasks while waiting for the computer to finish, so they should be given feedback indicating when the computer expects to be done. Feedback during the delay is especially important if the response time is

This includes all 'pre-transfer' commands and negotiations that are specific to the particular protocol(s) involved.                    |\n| Redirect time (time_redirect)       | The time, in seconds, it took for all redirection steps include name lookup, connect, pretransfer and transfer before the final transaction was started. 'time_redirect' shows the complete execution time for multiple redirections. |\n| StartXfer time (time_starttransfer) | The time, in seconds, it took from the start until the first byte was just about to be transferred. This includes 'time_pretransfer' and also the time the server needed to calculate the result.                                     |\n| Total time                          | The sum of all the other times.                                                                                                                                                                                                       |\n\n\n## Response Times: The 3 Important Limits\n\nShort note for your information.\n\n* **0.1 second** \u2013 is about the limit for having the user feel that the system is reacting instantaneously, meaning that no special feedback is necessary except to display the result;\n* **1.0 second** \u2013 is about the limit for the user\u2019s flow of thought to stay uninterrupted, even though the user will notice the delay. Normally, no special feedback is necessary during delays of more than 0.1 but less than 1.0 second, but the user does lose the feeling of operating directly on the data;\n* **10 seconds** \u2013 is about the limit for keeping the user\u2019s attention focused on the dialogue. For longer delays, users will want to perform other tasks while waiting for the computer to finish, so they should be given feedback indicating when the computer expects to be done. Feedback during the delay is especially important if the response time is \n\n<br />\n<p align=\"right\"><a href=\"https://wolfsoftware.com/\"><img src=\"https://img.shields.io/badge/Created%20by%20Wolf%20on%20behalf%20of%20Wolf%20Software-blue?style=for-the-badge\" /></a></p>\n",
