I have some code tweaks that I believe will improve the performance of my pages. However, I'm not sure how to use the tools I have to get a total response time of my page (before and then after my code change to compare).

I have Firebug, Developer dashboard and Fiddler 2 installed. As far as I can see, they only show response times for each HTTP request. How would I get the total response time of the page I'm testing in either of these tools?

    Use System Center Operations Manager for monitoring SharePoint or a 3rd party tool like Quest Foglight for ASP. Foglight can capture trends like page load times as well as consolidate performance counters.

    IE 11 has a nice UI Responsiveness section that will give you all sorts of analytics including total page load time.
