Dynatrace Synthetic Monitoring

What is synthetic monitoring?

Synthetic monitoring (or “availability monitoring”) is website monitoring that relies on web-browser emulation and scripted recordings to simulate user interactions with your web application. Dynatrace clickpath web checks simulate the real-world customer interactions and business transactions that are most critically important to the success of your business.

Web checks are run at regular intervals to provide 24/7 visibility into your application’s:

  • Functionality
  • Availability
  • Response times

Synthetic monitoring enables you to identify problems and determine when your website or application are slow or out of service—alerting you before problems affect your customers. Because synthetic monitoring doesn’t require actual web traffic to generate sufficient metrics, it enables you to test your web applications 24x7. Synthetic monitoring is a great complement to passive monitoring (such as real user monitoring), providing visibility into application health even during off-peak hours when traffic levels are low.

Synthetic monitoring provides all the information you need to understand your service levels, system availability, and the availability of key business transactions. Dynatrace is delivered as a service (SaaS). You only pay for the monitoring and analysis you need to keep your applications and services running smoothly—and your customers happy.
