Synthetic monitoring which is also referred to as proactive monitoring or active monitoring is a website monitoring process which is a done with the help of web browser scripted recordings or web browser emulation or web transactions. The paths or behavioral scripts are created to simulate a path or action that the end user would take in site. These paths or behavioral scripts are monitored on regular basis for enhanced performance in terms of availability, functionality and the time taken for responding. There is growing importance for synthetic monitoring as it provides better IT/Operations and enables webmaster professional to determine and indentify various quires and malfunctioning. This helps in determining whether web application or website is experiencing a downtime or slows before the problem actually affects the customer or end-users. The synthetic monitoring does not actually require any web traffic so it provides companies to test web applications 24*7. The synthetic monitoring system also provides testing of new applications before the application is launched the end users. This complements well with the passive monitoring system as it provides visibility on application health during peak hours when the transaction volume is low. The synthetic monitoring provides deeper visibility in the end to end performance when it is used traditional APM tools. Synthetic monitoring provides simulation of typical navigation through website or end use behavior.
