An Updated Site With Agility
Prior to the tournament, the Agility team analyzed peak traffic spikes from previous years versus CPU usage and site performance.
Based on the findings, Agility implemented – with the help of partner Point Alliance – updates to the Hockey Canada site. We put a plan in place to ramp up its hosting environment if the load intensified at any point in time, and we tested many different scenarios.
We also created and tested a new caching algorithm to handle new content being published to the live site during traffic spikes. We used load-testing software to find a benchmark of site performance prior to our updates. Then we ran the same tests against the site after our performance updates to see the impact of the changes made.
90% Load Time Improvement in Hockey Canada’s Performance During Peak Times
The Hockey Canada website was rebuilt and relaunched on Agility CMS with the help of an implementation partner.
There was a major improvement in Hockey Canada’s performance. Page load times were down by about 90% during peak traffic times, while CPU usage was down by over 60%.
The Agility team is knowledgeable and works diligently to ensure the success of its clients. The platform is flexible and powerful enough for all of our projects while remaining approachable for a range of non-technical staff.
