The performance of your website has a direct impact on traffic, conversions, revenue, and customer satisfaction. And your brand reputation and online success depend on your ability to provide users with a glitch-free, consistently pleasing online experience—no matter the user’s device, browser, network connection, or geographic location. Using an automated web application monitoring solution, such as a synthetic website monitoring solution, is one way you can ensure that your website or web application performs as intended and that users are never left disappointed, frustrated, or searching for an alternative.
Monitoring and managing the performance of today’s web applications isn’t easy. Modern websites involve frequent modifications and a complicated intersection of APIs, frameworks, and internal as well as external services. Web application delivery today spans various components and services (such advertising servers, social media sites, and content delivery networks), many of which are provided by third parties and each of which represents a potential bottleneck or point of failure.
Performance problems can occur anywhere along the application delivery chain reaching from the user’s browser and computer or mobile device, through third-party and cloud providers, to your backend infrastructure. Therefore, a suitable automated web application monitoring solution must offer holistic visibility into the entire distributed application architecture. To overcome the complexity of modern web application delivery, organizations need powerful synthetic testing and synthetic monitoring tools, tools capable of detecting, identifying, and collecting performance data on each and every host and each third party service involved.
End-to-end synthetic transaction monitoring tools eliminate blind spots by allowing you to trace individual synthetic transactions, giving you a complete view of the application delivery chain from the client, across the Internet and third-party services, and to your data center. An automated web application monitoring solution based on full-stack synthetic transaction monitoring lets you:
