Synthetic Performance Monitoring Tools

Synthetic Monitoring

Simulate user experiences, pre-empt potential issues, and ensure 24x7 availability.

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:

  • Is my website available 24x7?
  • How fast is my website at this moment?
  • Are my key business transactions working?
  • How are the third party components operating?
  • Is there a failure or slowdown anywhere?

Visualize user's experience through your web applications with synthetic testing

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.

Track critical components and metrics

Applications Manager's Real Browser Monitor(RBM) replicates the user's behaviour through the web applications and uses behavioural scripts to describe the path that would be taken by a end-user on the site. Real Browser Monitor consists of two components - Web transaction recorder and End-User Monitoring(EUM) agents. With the help of the pre-installed EUM agents, simulate user's journey though your website, track and monitor key synthetic user monitoring metrics, periodically and remotely from various geographic locations where the Agents are installed. Accurately pinpoint the root cause of latency issues, be it CSS, web fonts, images, JavaScript, or any other resource that is invoked, and optimize it.

Monitor the behaviour of your webpages

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 comprehensive details about your URL sequences

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.
