Speed benchmark
By , for WP 3.9.1

I hope that later or sooner there will be a recognized parameter that enables everybody to understand the speed of the service they are contracting.

The tool is fantastic

the concept is brilliant
By , for WP 3.9.1

I love the idea of collecting and aggregating data from a larger network to return better results to each individual.

Your other plugin Wordfence is a brilliant example of this, good work. Im interested to see where this could go, i dunno much about CDNs but maybe that could be food for thought.

Not non-tech friendly
By , for WP 3.8.1

Not everyone using this is tech savvy - can you give the rest of us a clue as to what the results mean? I really don't care what a BogoWip is - I would like to know how many I should have. For some things "more is better" (cash, etc) for other things "less is more" (golf score, etc) Even something as simple as a smiley to give me a hint would be great. ☹

Works great.
Simple to use.
With a single click shows how my hosting providers of CPU, Network, and Database performance compares to the industry average.
Adding this tool to my tool belt!

where is all the data???
By , for WP 3.5.1

my host is compared to an average.. which is meaningless. I'm using shared hosting.. other might be on VPS or dedicated

The data should be displayed alongside averages for each host in a league table, then at least hosts can be compared. I wouldn't even mind paying a little for a 'pro' version for the data. Otherwise.. pointless - unless I have several hosts, and you test each one myself.

Please put the data online.

Could become a must-have
By , for WP 3.5.1

Allowed me to visualise the very poor performance I get from my host Go Daddy.

It would be great if the author could compile and make available the information collected by the plugin.

This information would help consumers make an informed decision when choosing their WP host.

By making the (anonymized) results publicly available it would also put pressure on the worst performing providers to get their act together.
