Definitive Guide to Synthetic Vs Real Application Monitoring Released by SmartBear

SmartBear Software, the choice of more than two million software professionals for building and delivering the world’s best applications, has released a new interactive eBook, “The Definitive Guide to Synthetic Vs Real Application Monitoring,” detailing the power of using both synthetic and real monitoring to ensure optimum performance of software applications. Various studies have indicated that approximately 20% of IT professionals’ time is spent trying to track down problems and a single system that provides one place to manage all relevant data and track problems is most ideal. An industry stat reveals that Google loses one percent of traffic for every 100 ms of delay.

“Establishing there is an issue, identifying where in the infrastructure the problem is and determining the impact of the issue on users allows IT professionals to have a meaningful discussion with all business stakeholders about changes or fixes that will best serve the customer and business,” said Denis Goodwin, Director of Product Management at SmartBear. “Using synthetic and real monitoring together provides a complete view of the system, infrastructure and user experience, helping to ensure users are having the best possible experience.”

The 33-page eBook outlines the differences between the two techniques and how they work, when to use synthetic versus real and the specific problems each can help solve as well as the importance of using both together. The eBook includes two video demonstrations by John Lucania, Monitoring Tools Sales Engineer at SmartBear, including an AlertSite UXM Synthetic overview and a tour of the AlertSite UXM Real interface.
