Questions Website Monitor Web Page Speed (Browser) Web Transaction Web Transaction (Browser) SSL/TLS Certificate DNS Server Website Defacement Brand Reputation Real-time Blocklist
What does it Monitor? Checks the website response for a success code Load time for all the individual assets a website requests Availability and response time of a transaction on a website or web application Availability and performance of multi-step web transactions SSL/TLS certificate Domain name resolution and DNS records TTL Monitors for changes to the visual appearance of a website Checks your domain URLs for unsafe web resources. Host names or IP addresses
Ideal for Monitoring Ideal for making sure the website is globally available and accessible to visitors Ideal for identifying static assets that detrimentally affect page speed and user experience Ideal for monitoring the health of a web transaction. Can be tested more frequently due to the low overhead on the target application (No requests to JS, CSS, images are triggered) Ideal for monitoring typical actions or paths that an user would take on a web application. The user interactions are continuously emulated on a real browser like Chrome from global locations to help identify issues. Validity of SSL/TLS certificates of a domain Ideal for identifying DNS resolution problems, checking TTL for DNS record types, and validating DNSSEC-signed responses For detecting defacement attacks on a website. Detect URLs in your domain that are marked as unsafe (deceptive sites, sites that carry out phishing attacks, hosting unwanted software or malware) Detect hostnames or IP addresses that are blocklisted.
How does it Monitor? Sends a GET request to a website or URL endpoint from the selected locations (110+ global locations available) or from within your private network, observes the response, and measures the web server response time Loads the full web page or URL on a real browser, and measures the resource loading time for assets like CSS, JS, images, web fonts, etc. Monitors via server side programs. Actual rendering of a web page does not occur. Cookies and other sessions are handled automatically Monitors via a real browser (Mozilla Firefox). The actual rendering of the web page takes place. Cookies and other sessions are handled by the browser Groups all the SSL/TLS certificates linked with an HTTPS server and validates the SSL Certificate if it's expired or not Initiates a DNS lookup for the configured domain against name servers. During poll the current Document Object Model (DOM) of the website is compared with a baseline DOM to detect and update the content modified threshold automatically. Web Risk API is used to send URLs to the Google Safe Browsing server to check their status. Checks the hostnames and IP addresses against popular DNS-based blocklist databases like Invaluement, SURBL, UCEPROTECT, Nordspam BL etc.
What is analyzed? Web server response time from multiple locations A visual representation of the static asset requests triggered by your website along with load time and order Web server response time and transaction time Web server response time and transaction time. All components of the web response are loaded including CSS, images, links loaded from third party websites and AJAX requests SSL/TLS Certificate validity, OCSP checks to identify revoked certificates, blacklisted checks to identify potential blacklisted certifying authority, and detection of tampered certificates using SHA-1 Fingerprint threshold. DNS server response time Image, script, Anchor, iframe, text, and link defacement, script modified percentage, and text modified percentage. Not applicable Not applicable
Metrics captured Captures availability status, response time by location, response time split-up, (DNS resolution, connection, SSL handshake, first byte, and download time) and throughput. Page load by location, waterfall chart, content breakdown by requests, and size, along with PageSpeed Insights recommendations. Response time for each transaction step by location and global status Transaction time, global status, page load time by location Expiry of domain's SSL/TLS certificate, revoked certificates, blacklisted certifying authority, and tampered certificates. Response time and global status for DNS server Element defacement status, script percentage modified, text defacement status, and text percentage modified. Not applicable Not applicable
