A Primer on Real User Monitoring - Monitoring what Matters




Performance monitoring covers everything from monitoring the performance of systems, network, infrastructure, and the end user. While there are many ways to monitor these, the two methods of monitoring from the end-user perspective are synthetic monitoring and real user monitoring (RUM).

Synthetic monitoring gives you the ability to identify and fix the issue even before it impacts the actual end user, while RUM helps quantify the impact that performance has on end-user experience, and correlate performance with user engagement. Understanding how RUM works can help you build a comprehensive monitoring strategy that eliminates any blind spots and ensures optimal performance with 100% availability.

In this ebook, we explain real user monitoring, how it differs from synthetic monitoring, and why combining RUM with synthetic takes your monitoring strategy to the next level.
