Surfing the www


Here is the story so far: Websites

After a couple of website glitches last September, including the Obamacare website crash, monitoring your website form a user's perspective has become mandatory. Some quick pointers to proactively monitor the performance of your website: 

  • Take one step beyond your QA's effort and test for realistic monitoring scenarios

  • Keep an eye on the response time and content accuracy of your webpages 

  • Get the geographical response time discrepancies fixed 

Beyond websites 

To prevent server glitches like those suffered by the Government websites, you should continuously monitor your datacenter infrastructure.

  • Watch out for the mail servers, databases, VMware resources etc.,

  • Keep track of your monitoring metrics and your resource availability

  • Define your alerting policies well
