Over the past few years, we’ve witnessed a couple of key trends in the performance monitoring space. Adoption of single-page applications (SPAs) has continued to grow and as such performance monitoring is evolving. SPAs don’t offer the same existing web metrics like load time or first paint from the browser performance API. As a result, developers require more flexibility to track the metrics that matter to their end-users and business.
Earlier in the year, we launched the request details page in Raygun Real User Monitoring. This update brought the instance-level insights into page performance to help you understand exactly what caused poor performance and how to improve it. To complement instance-level insights, this latest launch brings the Latest slowest requests module to Real User Monitoring.
Staying in control of your users’ digital experience and their level of satisfaction is the most important thing you can do as a software-based business. Yet, that’s impossible to do without tools that enable you to visualize how customers interact with your app or website from their perspective. They give you the data you need to understand how your webapp or website is performing and avoid slow pages or screens that make your customers run in the direction of your competitors.
Monitoring user activity on your website is a must if you want to run a successful and profitable online business. By implementing real user monitoring on your website, you can get an in-depth understanding of how your users are interacting with your website and the experience they receive. In this article, we discuss what real user monitoring (RUM) is and the benefits of using it. We’ll also share some best practices, so you’ll be ready to set up real user monitoring for your website.
Customer experience is becoming a key differentiator between competitors. Actually, it already is! If your website is performing poorly, it’s hurting your business. The first step towards improving this performance is using a real user monitoring tool to identify problems and monitor your progress towards improvement.
Raygun’s Launch Notes are your regular round-up of all the improvements we made to Raygun last month — from major features to performance updates. With the release of our new first paint and first contentful paint metrics for RUM, you’ll be able to get a more granular understanding of how users experience your application. We’ve already started the beta, and we will be releasing the feature in the next few weeks. Watch this space!
Real User Monitoring is a type of performance monitoring that captures and analyzes each transaction by users of a website or application. It’s also known as real user measurement, real user metrics, end-user experience monitoring, or simply RUM. It’s used to gauge user experience, including key metrics like load time and transaction paths, and it’s an important component of application performance management (APM).
