Web Application Monitoring with Video Capture: Aligning with User Goals

Do you have a true user’s view of your web application performance when an error occurs? Because if you don’t have web application monitoring with video capture — if all you see when an error occurs is an error code — then you’re in trouble.

If every web application monitoring error diagnostic is based on reading web application code — and not seeing an actual video of the web application at the time of the error, then you are not seeing your customers’ experience of your web application – and that’s a problem. If you aren’t viewing a web application performance video you aren’t seeing your web application through your user’s eyes, no matter how hard you try or how much code you read.

Monitoring the Cloud – Cloud Monitoring for Application Management

Cloud-based applications with poor performance cost companies lost revenues and customers. In fact, as cloud apps become more complex more performance issues can occur, resulting in lost conversions and higher rates of website abandonment. Therefore, companies running cloud web applications need to continually monitor for performance issues, functionality and availability.

Traditional web applications sit on static servers inside a data center behind company firewalls. This delivery chain is fixed with minimal variables. Cloud applications, however, are more complex by nature. Here the application delivery chain moves from an end-user through a browser (PC or mobile device), across the Internet (through a local ISP, or mobile carrier), through a third-party (cloud provider, or content delivery network (CDN)), into the complex infrastructure of a data center. All of these elements are essential to a cloud-based application’s performance making cloud testing and cloud monitoring much more challenging than traditional application performance management.
