A guide to assuring performance and availability of critical services across public and hybrid clouds and the internet.
You’re responsible for monitoring the performance and availability of critical cloud services. If your users start complaining about slow response times, it’s tough to get started when you can’t even see where the problem is. This is where synthetic testing comes in—to help you find problems before they affect your users. This means fewer complaints and happier customers!
Learn how to use synthetic testing as part of a comprehensive monitoring strategy in this guide from our network observability experts. Synthetic tests simulate user activity across all layers of your application stack, including database queries, web requests, API calls, and more—giving you an accurate picture of how well each layer is performing under real-world conditions.
This guide will cover:
Why continuous monitoring across all your networks and clouds matters
How synthetic testing works to help you proactively find issues before they start, including in 3rd part clouds and services
What role synthetic testing plays in a intra- and inter-cloud monitoring environments
How specific examples of cloud monitoring work, like in the case of a DNS failure
How flow and synthetic monitoring work together in cloud networking
