June 2, 2010 – Today Dotcom-Monitor celebrates a significant milestone as we’ve released some major updates to our services. These updates come wrapped within our four distinct service “platforms” – all offered in the unified Dotcom-Monitor User Interface.
The Dotcom-Monitor Platforms
NEW! UserView Monitoring™ – for monitoring complex web transactions. It simulates end user’s browser interactions such us: mouse clicks, page navigation, hovering, typing text, etc… within a website or web application. UserView Monitoring™ operates on top of a regular Internet Explorer browser (IE8) and can simulate any IE8-browser action performed by a user. It’s the ideal platform for “User Experience” monitoring.
NEW! MetricsView Monitoring™ – a monitoring platform that currently provides traffic pattern monitoring and page load times.
NEW! LoadView (Web Load Stress Test) – a platform for on-demand stress testing of web sites and web applications with both Cycle and Time based test options and reports.
ServerView Monitoring™ – the traditional Dotcom-Monitor platform still includes all current monitoring services such as website monitoring, network monitoring, email monitoring, VoIP monitoring, Streaming Media Server monitoring and more.
More Features Released Today
EveryStep™ Macro Recorder – redesigned MacroRecorder to quickly and easily pre-record transaction and web application scripts for use within the ServerView Monitoring™, UserView Monitoring™ and LoadView Stress Testing™ platforms. It includes playback when recorded in UserView Mode, a window for script review, and is more robust than ever, meaning it can handle much more complex applications.
Reporting Enhancements – reporting charts are now more interactive and include easy zoom-in/zoom-out functionality. The reports also include additional filtering capabilities, which provide customized calculations for uptime/downtime data have been added. By using report filters users can more precisely define uptime/downtime, providing more accuracy and flexibility when using reports for uptime/downtime analysis, SLA management, and presentations.
