These files are massive. So a tester needs to find a time for a single
request in LB logs => then find a time for the same request in server logs
=> then find a time for the response => then find the time for the same
response in LB logs.
Then he should subtract all the times to get an idea of a response times.
Pls correct my chain of events if it is wrong.

Also, how do you work with such massive files? Just simple "Find" method in
notepad (for windows based)?

So if I don't have AppServer, then I don't have reverse proxy

Is it the difference between DOMContentLoaded and Load time shown by
Firebug? If no, how do you measure rendering time?

Here is where I am puzzled. Remember that my website is on a single Web
Server (no Appl Servers). Response for static files would increase
respectively with the load. What is the point of measuring it if the data
would be irrelevant when I apply the load. So if images (etc) take 2 seconds
to load, I can't use this time to add because it will increase when the load
is applied.
