AlertSite UXM offers real browser-based performance monitoring for web sites and web applications, performance monitoring for APIs and non browser-based monitoring for a number services and site types.
Browser-based performance monitors tell you what the end user experience is like for users interacting with your application. Non browser-based availability monitors just tell you if the service or site is alive, did they answer the call.
To provide valuable information about the end user experience for an application AlertSite UXM uses:
An independent global monitoring network
80+ locations provide a view of your performance anywhere you need. The network is independent, operational 24X7. This is the optimal method for web monitoring- providing a complete picture of the state of your web applications and web sites at all times.
Browser-based transaction monitoring
By starting with a real browser to record interactions with a web application, AlertSite UXM emulates an acual user. This is the critical difference to get the information about how your web applications are working. Real browser based monitors are created using AlertSite UXMs browser based recorder with a few clicks of the mouse.
Perceived user experience metrics
These measurements of the time it takes for a page and the objects on it to load in the top third of the page (above the fold) can only be obtained using a real browser. Percieved user experience metrics tell you what the user experience feels like- when someone comes to a page if the top of the page loads first then what they see loads fast. Captured screen shots show what the page looks like to a user at each milestone.
Non browser-based availability monitoring is offered for:
Email (IMAP, POP,SMPT)
Secure web site
Simple TCP connect
