Synthetic monitoring simulates a user's journey through a website or application, to ensure the functionality of the critical elements in it. Monitoring synthetic transactions can also help SREs and DevOps engineers identify issues, and determine the slow responses and downtime before it affects the actual business. Applications Manager's synthetic monitoring tool helps you ensure a seamless experience for your users on all major desktop browsers.
Synthetic monitoring tools like Applications Manager can help you get answers to questions like:
Applications Manager's synthetic transaction monitoring enables you to create and implement an effective monitoring strategy to keep an eye on the both the back and front end of your applications to ensure meaningful and relevant experiences to end users.
Applications Manager's synthetic monitoring features extend to recording the web transactions of individual URLs and URL sequences with Web Transaction Recorder. It records the user's simulated transactions as they navigate through the website and captures the HTTPS/HTTP request URLs in their exact sequence. You can even detect bad response codes by performing response code configuration on the synthetic monitor.
Get extensive details about your webpages like availability, response times of individual URLs, DNS time, and page size. Detect slow performance by monitoring the page load time and response times of various elements. Our synthetic monitoring tool helps you evaluate whether applications meet your SLA requirements, and measure the impact it has on users.
With our Web Page Analyzer, you can capture screenshots of your transaction, to gain better insights, especially during downtime. Additional details about the captured webpage such as the types of resources used and the time taken to load each resource is also provided.
Understand how your applications and services behave for your users around the world. Applications Manager's synthetic website monitoring service allows you to measure the end-user experience from both local and remote locations, and provides you with critical details like health, availability and status of the services.
You can combine Applications Manager's synthetic website monitoring with real user monitoring (RUM) capabilities to achieve all-round high performance.
Applications Manager's advanced analytics gives you rich, actionable insights into your webpages' performance. Utilize the synthetic monitoring dashboard to analyze the historical trends of critical parameters concerning various components of your services such as availability, response and load times, and more. By tracking the trends, you can anticipate downtime and make educated decisions accordingly.
The process of simulating a user's journey through a web application and monitoring it to detect any latency-increasing elements is widely known as synthetic monitoring or synthetic testing. A synthetic monitor can also be employed from various locations around the globe remotely.
In order to ensure a seamless experience for your end-users, synthetic performance monitoring is imperative. Monitor synthetic transaction to help you understand how the user interacts with the web application, and ensure the functionality of critical elements in it.
Synthetic monitoring usually involves three types of tests:
There are various synthetic monitoring tools available on the market. ManageEngine's Applications Manager is one such solution that can be used to perform synthetic testing, among other capabilities. By keeping a 24x7 close watch on your web application, it can help identify performance issues before they affect end users. The synthetic monitoring platform comes with a web transaction recorder, real browser monitor, EUM agent and other end user monitoring capabilities to provide a thorough monitoring experience.
To start monitoring synthetic transactions using Applications Manager, End User Monitoring(EUM) agent and Web Transaction Recorder must be installed in order to get the best out of it. You can then add your workflows that need to be monitored and configure various settings to monitor your web applications effectively.
