Synthetic User Monitoring (SUM) monitors the performance and availability of web applications from a client-side perspective.
For that, it relies on Scenarios regularly executed by a Runner.
Synthetic User Monitoring provides the following benefits
Proactive detection: With Synthetic User Monitoring, you have a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week monitoring. This enables you to detectperformance and availability issues early, potentially before the end-users face them.
Factual metrics: With Synthetic User Monitoring, the monitoring relies on the same scenarios being re-executed. This allows you to monitor theevolution of the performance and availability based on comparable metrics.
