That One Time Using APM Bit Us

At Catchpoint, our mission is to provide customers with actionable data that will help them reduce MTTR and maintain a positive digital experience. We measure "from where the users are" to ensure the data reflects real end-user experience. As someone that's part of the Catchpoint on-call chain, this is extremely important to me. I do not want to be woken up at 2 AM because a server is misbehaving, only to find out that the application failed over gracefully and no users were impacted.

Datadog Synthetic Monitoring now supports cross-browser testing

Your users access your application from a wide range of browsers, which have their own implementations of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. For instance, many modern JavaScript features such as Promises and Arrow Functions are unsupported by some browsers. These inconsistencies can lead to missing elements and malfunctioning workflows that affect some—but not all—of your user base.

RUM and Synthetic Monitoring for Business Success

Real User Monitoring (RUM) is becoming increasingly popular during the pandemic as most employees start to work remotely from home. This type of passive monitoring approach captures the real end-user experience of accessing web applications. IT gathers SaaS application performance metric data and leverages those insights to quickly troubleshoot issues for remote workers. On the other hand, Synthetic monitoring emulates real users accessing cloud and infrastructure services like Microsoft 365. Businesses would benefit from a holistic monitoring strategy that includes both RUM and Synthetic tests to cater to the needs of a hybrid remote workforce.

Do you already know what Synthetic Transaction Monitoring is?

Most of us who work in IT understand the concept of basic monitoring. It is not that it is an irrelevant concept, but rather, it is essential for any infrastructure, either manual, by reading logs and checking machines and services; semi-automated, using custom-made scripts or, the safest and most recommended, using a specific tool such as Pandora FMS to centralize your monitoring. But what is synthetic monitoring? We will see that throughout this article.
