Our last article on Load Testing mentioned about website crash happening due to high traffic. So how does the website owner know if the website has crashed? Thanks to different techniques of Application Performance Monitoring[APM] such issues could either be reported in Real-time or may not even surface because of Synthetic/Active monitoring. Our current post would talk about Why customers need Synthetic Monitoring and how our solution Site Monitoring @CloudQA could help our customers to measure and optimize website performance. Let’s get started-
What is Synthetic Monitoring
Synthetic monitoring is a technique that uses Web browser emulation to simulate real time environment and performs tests at a particular interval for response time, availability and functionality of the website.
Here are Top Six Reasons for using Synthetic Monitoring for your website-
- Testing of application from end user’s perspective
- Monitors application 24*7
- Know the Impact of third party components on your website performance
- It provides a comprehensive set of diagnostic data you need to debug problems anywhere
- Helps in providing accurate SLA thereby strengthening relations with the customer
- It provides a stable and consistent environment to measure performance at all hours of the day, over a period of weeks or months helping in benchmarking or baselining the metrics.
