Basically would like to see if using http2 had a measurable effect on SSL handshake time. If we turned on http2 will the synthetics browser be able to use it?
Synthetics is using your standard chrome browser to navigate the web. I did want to test, however, so found the http2 site hosted by akamai, and created a test script:
If I’m to trust them, it looks like the Synthetics browser does support HTTP2!
I hope this is helpful!
@aaronsnyder great way to find the answer: just tried and saw what happened!
Yeah, we do support HTTP2 for Browser-based monitors: that’s one of the reason for using Chrome - we get awesome new tech support “for free”.
