Test GIF Loading

This is a demonstration of how the total number of small graphics files affects page serving performance.

The following is a series of calls to identical pages, each of which contains the about 9,000 bytes of text, plus calls to a variable number of short *.gifs, each of which is 223 bytes. A different name is used for every *.gif to foil any file name matching. The aim is to make an almost constant *.htm page but with a variable number of *.gifs to evaluate file serving time.
