Slowest Pages Node
The Slowest Pages node lists the top ten slowest pages by URL and Response Time during a scan.
Acunetix 360 allows you to fine-tune the Scan Scope, which affects the Scan Duration and Speed. For example, you can scan the whole web page or only a part of it.
The scan duration is also related to the response time of the server. For example, if a scan takes 30 minutes to complete with an average response time of 200ms, it takes an hour to complete the scan with an average response time of 400ms. Response time can affect scan performance.
In addition to the scan performance, the slowest pages may have errors or inefficiencies in the code. It can also be used to perform Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Even though pages that are slow to load do not pose a direct security threat, it is good to know about them for troubleshooting purposes.
Once the scan is completed, all slowest pages are listed under the Slowest Pages node in the Knowledge Base. You can access the same information in the Knowledge Base Report and Knowledge Base Tab.
Acunetix 360 forms Knowledge Base nodes upon its findings. If the Slowest Pages node is not listed, it means that Acunetix 360 did not find any issue.
