Website monitoring involves:
Monitor the availability and performance of web pages of your web application. Applications manager checks if your website pages are accessible. When they are not accessible, notifications are sent and corrective actions can be triggered. Website performance monitoring feature checks for various attributes such as response time, etc. For example, you can add a URL, say http://mycompany/estore.jsp, for monitoring. You can set a threshold for a web page such that - if the page load time of that page is more than 5 seconds, you should be notified through an e-mail or SMS. This helps you in taking quick action before it affects end users.
When the URL Monitoring is performed, the Web page and its content is retrieved. A successful page retrieval assures you that your Web server is functioning properly. In addition to this, the URL Monitoring helps you verify that CGI scripts and back-end databases are functioning properly.
The purpose of URL Sequence is to monitor multiple web pages of an online application. It checks pages with dynamically generated information, enhancing interactive transactions such as logging into a login page, creating an account using a web form, instructing the application to perform some action, etc.
URL Sequencing starts with a specific URL such as the Login page and then followed by additional links/URL in it. The URL Sequence monitoring thus performs end-to-end verification of particular transactions.
This feature comes handy especially for e-commerce sites and sites that provides multiple forms to be filled-in by users. You can perform URL sequence monitoring to see what is returned at every step of a URL sequence. This helps in quicker troubleshooting by identifying which page in the sequence, that is typically followed by users, gives trouble.
URL Content Monitoring can be used to monitor Web pages that are generated dynamically and display statistics about custom applications. URL Content Monitoring ensures that your pages are not modified without your knowledge. This feature is useful for ensuring validity of data on database-driven web sites. If a keyword is not present on that web page, you can notify it through e-mail or SMS and take corrective actions instantly.
You can ensure that a specified text appears on your web page all the time. For example, you can check for the availability of a text, say $995, which maybe retrieved from a database. This helps you in ensuring that your database is running fine too.
