Synthetic monitoring

Synthetic monitoring generates and analyzes realistic traffic on web applications in order to gauge the health of those applications. Whether for pre-launch cloud load testing or to help ensure the availability and performance of live services, synthetic monitoring is valuable throughout the application delivery lifecycle.
