Today’s Tip focuses on one of Catchpoint’s core functionalities: our real user monitoring or RUM solution. While recording and replaying transactions with Catchpoint’s synthetic monitoring offering is undeniably robust and powerful thanks to our 830+ worldwide monitoring locations, it doesn’t change the inherent value of live data when it comes to analyzing real user experience.

RUM and APM: Your solution for building better user experiences

As modern development practices evolve at rapid rates we must stay focused on what makes for a great experience; fast, flawless software. In the pursuit of building fast, performant software, you've likely come across performance monitoring products like Real User Monitoring (RUM) and Application Performance Monitoring (APM). In this article, we go deeper into how using RUM and APM can help you and your team build better software experiences.

Real User Monitoring for JavaScript with Retrace

Real User Monitoring, also known as End User Monitoring or RUM, is a way of monitoring the client side portions of an application. Real User Monitoring for JavaScript allows developers to have access to key metrics for load times and user paths being used in production as part of their application performance management (APM).


Gain actionable insights with XHR-level detail for response codes

A broken or poor performing XHR can significantly impact a user’s experience with a page by slowing down the load time or causing it to break entirely. Many of our customers monitoring web applications agree that monitoring and optimizing XHR calls is the biggest lever they have to improve application performance. In April of this year, we announced that Raygun Real User Monitoring can now surface analytics into the response codes from XHR calls.


How to Boost User Experience With RUM Software

According to a report by Google, mobile users abandon webpages if the load time is more than three seconds. In other words, even a fractionally slower website will lead to a bad user experience and increased bounce rates. Today’s users are more demanding and expect near-instantaneous load times and seamless experiences. If you can’t meet their expectations, they’ll find other websites or applications capable of providing a better experience.


How we made an 83% performance improvement using Real User Monitoring

As applications evolve, we may start to lose visibility into why things are slow. Web apps often suffer in silence as customers are more likely to leave when they’re unsatisfied rather than reach out. Complex user flows, resource-intensive API calls, and an ever-growing codebase can all contribute to poor performance. This is why we don’t have scheduled performance days.


Visualize performance trends over time with the latest graph for RUM

Monitoring trends in application performance helps you identify poor performance and visualize the impact of performance optimizations you’ve made. To help you better monitor performance trends, we’ve released a new line graph now available across all performance details pages in Real User Monitoring.


Improve mobile user experience with Datadog Mobile Real User Monitoring

From gaming and social media to e-commerce and travel, mobile is reshaping the way businesses operate and engage with their customers. In an increasingly competitive market, ensuring your mobile applications stay highly performant and resilient will be critical in differentiating yourself from the crowd as well as avoiding uninstalls and poor app reviews.

Real User Monitoring with Catchpoint

Real user monitoring (RUM) is an added advantage when trying to optimize website performance. It provides detailed insight into user behavior and correlates application performance with business outcomes. Catchpoint offers a single platform for both synthetic and RUM providing a complete 360-degree view of performance to ensure a positive end user experience.
