Real User Monitoring

Real User Monitoring (RUM) is one of the two fundamental constituents of Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM), the other one being Synthetic monitoring. DEM is defined by Gartner as an availability and performance monitoring discipline that supports the optimization of the operational experience and behavior of a digital agent, human or machine, as it interacts with enterprise applications and services.
