What is synthetic transaction monitoring?

Synthetic transaction monitoring employs simulated user interactions to actively oversee and assess the performance, accessibility, and functionality of applications, websites, or web services.

Within this method, scripted transactions are devised to replicate genuine user engagements with the application or system. These scripts are meticulously crafted to adhere to predetermined sequences, encompassing actions like logging in to an application, executing specific tasks, and validating anticipated outcomes. These transactions are then scheduled to execute at consistent intervals from diverse locations, thereby emulating user experiences across various geographic regions. The measurements derived from these transactions can be captured through browsers, facilitating comprehensive monitoring and evaluation.

Why is synthetic transaction monitoring important?

Curious to know how your page or application will look for an end user? Synthetic transaction monitoring allows you to be in the user’s shoes and experience the workflow on your site, which helps you identify performance issues. A flight ticket booking site, for instance, might have multiple steps, like logging in; selecting the preferred destination, dates, flights, and payment; and, finally, logging out. If any of these steps appear broken or load slowly, that might cause customers to look for another option, leading to loss of business and revenue. This is where a synthetic transaction monitoring tool comes in to help you verify that each of these steps are functioning well from different browsers, devices, or global locations, ensuring that all of the site's users have a seamless digital experience.
