Benefits of Synthetic Monitoring

 

Synthetic monitoring of websites and applications ensures optimal user experiences for websites, applications and business services. While these benefits are very similar to application performance monitoring, synthetic monitoring can help IT teams and developers uncover network and last-mile issues that affect the end user experience even when application performance metrics are strong. Key benefits include:

  • Proactively detect issues, restore services and minimize outages of business-critical applications and customer-facing websites.
  • Track performance metrics such as page load times and end-to-end latency that can affect business outcomes such as user signup rates and transaction completion rates.
  • Prevent or reduce shopping cart abandonment on retail websites.
  • Identify the cause of a site outage or performance degradation when the application itself is not the culprit.
