What is Synthetic Monitoring?
Synthetic Monitoring is a technique utilized by IT Ops and webmaster teams to evaluate and baseline the performance of their web application in test/production environments with no data use of real users. Typically, this involves ongoing monitoring of a set of user paths at intervals defined ahead of time using browser emulation to discover issues and slow-performing transactions.
What are the benefits?
Test multi-step workflows such as login and form submission
Locate problems before your end-users are affected
Use data as yardsticks to benchmark performance
Simulate transactions on real-browsers like Chrome & Safari
Perform checks from relevant customer locations
Go deep into your business-critical user flows and measure its actual rendition.
