QoE and SLAs: How to optimize the right metricsBlog
If you provide an Internet-based service, it is crucial to ensure a high level of availability and quality for your users. Providers have always used Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to define criteria for uptime, latency, and other aspects of quality that can be measured from an application or network perspective.
However, as services become more complex and users demand higher levels of quality, it is becoming increasingly important to also consider user perception in the form of Quality of Experience (QoE). In this article, we’ll explore why combining QoE and SLAs is a perfect match for ensuring optimal service delivery to end-users, and how Surfmeter can help you define and meet your own criteria based on the actual users’ experience.Read more
Now Shipping: Google Lighthouse Web MetricsBlog
There was a time when it was enough to wait for a “load” event to know that a web page was loading. This is no longer the case. As websites become more complex — through media assets or interactive elements — it’s no longer easy to determine the user experience for a browsing session. As part of our vision to provide a single platform for measuring quality of experience, we now support Google Lighthouse web performance metrics. Read on to learn more!Read more

How LambdaTest makes it easy to run Browser AutomationBlog
At AVEQ we’re measuring the performance and quality of web pages, including those that play video. It’s in the nature of those pages that they constantly change — be it minor CSS updates or complete overhauls. To ensure that our measurement solutions keep working as intended, we perform regular tests on those websites to see if anything has changed.
We used to do this manually, which was quite time-consuming and tedious. But then we discovered LambdaTest, a cloud-based cross-browser testing platform that made it easy to automate our tests. In this post we’re going to show you how it saved us plenty of time — and how you can use it.Read more
Adventures in Building Multi-Arch Docker Images with Chrome/ChromiumBlog
Docker is great – run the same code on all machines, no setup needed. So they say. But once you go beyond simple Dockerfiles, things start to change.
We recently had the, uhm, pleasure of trying to dockerize Chrome, ideally with support for DRM content. We thought it would be easy — grab the latest version from Google, unpack it, and done. But it turns out there’s a little more to it than that. Especially when you build for multiple architectures. Because now, there’s not just amd64, there is also arm64 (for Apple Silicon Macs) and armv7l, which Raspberry Pi uses (sometimes called armhf).
In this post, we are going to explore what is needed to create a multi-arch Docker image with Chrome (or Chromium). If you want the TL;DR version: Use Chromium and Debian, which makes it possible to build multiarch images.Read more
