This topic describes the core benefits of the synthetic monitoring feature.
- Global coverage
The monitoring network of the synthetic monitoring feature has more than 200,000 last mile points, over 500 monitoring points across IDCs owned by more than 400 carriers, and hundreds of thousands of registered members. This ensures that the synthetic monitoring feature can satisfy the ever-increasing business requirements.
- Out-of-the-box solution
Delivery in SaaS mode means that no embedded code is required. Out-of-the-box solution eliminates the need for R&D support. Flexible billing methods help you reduce O&M costs.
- All-weather fine-grained monitoring
Fine-grained monitoring can be ensured by the following items: granularity of minutes, more than 20 monitoring correlation parameters in 7 categories, and 24/7 real-time fault monitoring, alerting, and performance analysis for sites and ports.
- Proactive monitoring approaches from user perspectives
The following measures are adopted from user perspectives to reduce analysis time and improve O&M efficiency: combined analysis from multiple dimensions such as regions and carriers, drill-down analysis on details of individual samples, rich index systems and chart types, and visual positioning of problems, affected areas, and their root causes.
- Intelligent alerting and precise positioning
Real-time alerts are implemented for the first meaningful paint, overall performance, and availability. Rich alert policy settings and deep integration with the alert center can effectively shorten the mean time to repair (MTTR). Error discovery for page elements and problem positioning at a level of single network requests are conducive to improve problem discovery efficiency.
- Flexible and transparent billing
The synthetic monitoring feature supports two billing methods: pay-as-you-go and subscription. You can select the appropriate one to save costs.
