PingWeb 0.1 - Checking the time to load web pages


I keep getting asked by the system support team, for a tool that checks on the time to load a webpage. The problem is that you cannot use a traditional ping tool, as it is based on ICMP instead of TCP, and will only indicate the spread at which data is transferred. However in the case of a website, the webpage can be delayed by the database processing time, the Web servers processing of the request.
