Announcing UserView Video Monitoring – Web Application Monitoring with Video Capture:
A user’s view video of web application errors, diagnostics, and performance

Minneapolis, Minnesota – Dec. 13, 2012 – Dotcom-Monitor, (www.Dotcom-Monitor.com), announces an industry-first with the launch of UserView Monitoring™ Video Capture (UserView Video) , a browser-based monitoring service that records a video of a web application transaction, measures performance, captures errors, and provides diagnostics all on the same screen.

“When web applications have errors UserView Video captures a user’s view video of the error – as it is occurring – that is paired with an interactive waterfall chart displaying details of the web pages’ code performance. It’s the fastest way available to diagnose web application errors minimizing downtime. You don’t have to guess about what to fix, or what website users are experiencing. The web operations team can simultaneously see the network data and a video of the user’s experience, so finding the problem that users experience is faster.” noted Vadim Mazo, CTO.
