Performance monitoring: Real user monitoring vs. synthetic monitoring

Tracking the usability of an application is critical for measuring and optimizing its performance. RUM provides in-depth insights into the end-user's perspective by meticulously collecting data, helping teams effectively optimize the user experience. However, it's vital to plan for any possible scenario, which is where synthetic monitoring comes into play. Developers can use synthetic monitoring to create simulations of artificial scenarios and solutions by mimicking actual users. Both RUM and synthetic monitoring are vital to ensure the success of an application and to provide the best possible user experience.

Overview of real user monitoring (RUM)

What is real user monitoring?

RUM is a method used to capture and analyze data from user transactions on a website or application. RUM is vital for monitoring an application's front-end performance and improving the customer experience. RUM offers a 360° view of the application's front-end and back-end performance along with potential bottlenecks as the end-users experience them in real time.

How does real user monitoring work?

RUM technology uses a JavaScript snippet embedded directly into each website or application that then collects various performance metrics directly from the end-user's browser. By doing so, RUM provides useful insights into your website or application from end users who are actively interacting with your website. These insights help you gauge the user experience, visualize user journeys, and assess the impact of optimizations.

What are the benefits of real user monitoring?

RUM's main uses come from capturing user data as they journey through an application; however, the advantages extend beyond this use case. The major benefits of RUM monitoring include:

What are the challenges of real user monitoring?

For all the advantages that RUM comes with, it also falls short in a few aspects. Some of the major limitations of RUM include:

What is the future of real user monitoring?

In an increasingly fast-paced environment, technologies like RUM monitoring help organizations identify time front-end performance issues in their applications and correct them quickly and efficiently. RUM continues to evolve to meet the challenges of monitoring application performance to improve the customer experience.
