Browser Synthetic Monitoring

Proactively ensure website availability and performance

Proactively ensure application performance and availability anytime from around the world with browser synthetic monitoring. Use our intelligent cloud agents to monitor business transaction performance from browser to backend, and to establish performance baselines, manage third-party SLAs, and benchmark the competition.

Have confidence that your web site is ready and working correctly all the time

  • Distributed cloud based agent generated measurements of your web site independent of and even in the absence of real-user traffic

  • Measure entire multi-page workflows simulating a complete customer journey including form data submission and user-actions via Selenium based scripting of tests

  • Gather visual based metrics to track the user perception of every page load

  • Provides solid independent data that the web site or a 3rd party is meeting performance SLAs for uptime, functionality and availability

  • Maintain a market edge by comparing the relative performance of your site via benchmarks of your competition or other industry standards

Immediately retest on error conditions to eliminate false positives

  • Rest easy at night and avoid the spurious 3 a.m false alert

  • Retest instantly on error conditions to eliminate erroneous results, confirm problems or determine severity and appropriate follow-up actions

  • No waiting for the next scheduled test window to see if an error is persistent or anomalous

Ensure site availability around the world from relevant locations simulating real user distribution

  • Agents are located in 27 data centers distributed around the world for global monitoring

  • Setup and tear down locations at will and on-demand as needed for each job

  • Set measurements for each location to be performed concurrently or round-robin to better meet your requirements and use budget efficiently

Baseline and track performance, monitor availability using real browsers to truly assess actual end-user experience

  • Monitor your site with the same real browsers as your customers (Chrome, Firefox, IE), not simulated browsers

  • Drive your monitoring via the latest standard WebDriver protocols for generating requests from real browsers

  • Selenium based scripting of measurement workflows with form data submission and user actions to test business logic and performance of back-end systems

  • Measure and track end user experience as perceived by your customers, not some proxy metric, with full resource waterfalls and page performance load times from the browser timing and navigation APIs

  • See Synthetic and Real-User performance in a single pane of glass for a comprehensive view of performance

With AppDynamics APM, discover business transactions to provide browser synthetic request to back-end application dependencies

  • Rapidly identify the exact offending line of code, from the client side web app to the database back-end with synthetic jobs triggering correlated back-end snapshots

  • Reduce the blame game between web app/site development and back-end app IT Ops teams

  • Work collaboratively with business owners, development, and operations to optimize your web experience and business outcomes

Set up your own custom schedules for synthetic jobs

  • Use your quota efficiently by scheduling measurement jobs at any interval appropriate for your purposes with custom measurement windows defined by day, time, and interval (minutes, hours, days)

  • Take advantage of globally distributed sites to make observations from locations that matter for your business

  • Monitor the detailed performance results of each job with rich metrics for analysis and troubleshooting

Browser Synthetic Monitoring

Flexible Scheduling
