Synthetic Website monitoring in 2012

Website Monitoring is the process of testing and verifying that end-users can interact with a website, or web application, from an external perspective. Businesses use external-based website monitoring to ensure  their sites are live and responding and to uncover issues that internal-based monitoring is unable to detect. For example, if the Domain Name Server (DNS) propagation process is working as it should a website won’t have DNS issues. But if only internal-based testing is occurring, or a current external monitoring system caches the DNS process, then a website owner will not know that their website may not be available because a secondary DNS processes is failing. Setting up external monitoring with full non-cache monitoring detects both primary and secondary full DNS processes.
