In web performance circles, “latency” is the amount of time it takes for the host server to receive and process a request for a page object. The amount of latency depends largely on how far away the user is from the server. For obvious reasons, tackling latency is a top priority for the performance industry. There are several ways to do this: * Allow more requests to happen concurrently. * Shorten the server round trips by bringing content closer to users. * Reduce the number of round trips. * Improve the browser cache, so that it can (1) store files and serve them where relevant on subsequent pages in a visit and (2) store and serve files for repeat visits.
Jitter is the amount of variation in latency/response time, in milliseconds. Reliable connections consistently report back the same latency over and over again. Lots of variation (or
