Imagine you’re looking for detailed insight into how your website performs over a short period of time. Perhaps you’re making some changes to content or structure. Or perhaps you’d like to see how the user experience varies over the course of a promotion – or during a load test in advance of a promotion.
Synthetic monitoring gives you alerting and a reliable overview of how performance changes over time. Real user monitoring tells you about performance as it’s experienced by actual visitors.
But what if you’re looking for accurate, real-browser tests, complete with filmstrips, heatmaps and videos? Something to help you understand the experience your site delivers and pinpoint any performance bottlenecks?
This is what the latest update to Performance Analyser allows you to do, thanks to more granular scheduling.
Load testing in advance of big promotional events can be challenging, and a lot of the UK’s top retailers were working incredibly hard to prepare their sites ahead of Black Friday 2016.
We were pleased to help one such retailer with a series of tests that ran just days ahead of a big Black Friday promotion.
How do you monitor your website’s performance and availability when you’re on the move?
If you’re using our monitoring service, there’s a good chance that you’re also using the free mobile app that comes with it. And you might have noticed some big improvements over the past few weeks.
