Monitors HTTP/HTTPS access, DNS resolve time, first byte and throughput Uses a real browser (Eg. Mozilla Firefox) to check full page load time of your website from global locations Monitor the availability and performance of multi-step web transactions, such as online shopping cart Monitor the availability and performance of multi-step web transactions, such as online shopping cart using a real browser Checks expiry of SSL certificate and proper HTTPS handshake Tests if your DNS is resolving properly simulating a real DNS query as configured
Ideal for Monitoring Ideal to make sure website is up with minimum overhead Ideal to analyze how the website page loads from an end user prespective Ideal to monitor web application response time. Can be tested more frequenty as it applies lesser load on target application (No JS, CSS, scripts are loaded) Ideal for monitoring web applications that contain form fillings and AJAX content SSL certificates of a domain Ideal for checking DNS servers for performance and outages
How does it Monitor? Invokes server side code (Java) to monitor the website page Loads full web page and all elements like HTML, CSS, JS, third party scripts in a real browser Monitors via server side programs.

Only HTML content of the requests are analyzed Multi-step Web Applications. All components of the web reseponse are loaded including CSS, images, links loaded from third party websites and AJAX requests SSL Certificate DNS resolve time for a domain
Metrics captured Supports response time split-up based on DNS time, connection time, first byte time, last byte time and average value Waterfall model of how the components are loaded. Response time of sub domains or other domains used.
