Transaction Monitoring & Web Application Testing


Perfect functionality



Transaction monitoring scripts can be used to identify a wide variety of possible issues, from slow page response times to monitoring the behavior of forms such as login pages and shopping carts. Transaction monitoring scripts can also be used to monitor a full range of APIs.

Transaction monitoring scripts should be run from a global infrastructure. Without using a worldwide network of monitoring stations you cannot accurately predict how your site behaves when customers interact with it from locations all around the world. CA App Synthetic Monitor enables you to easily upload your transaction monitoring scripts from your desktop and run them using our global infrastructure of 80+ monitoring stations.

The performance of individual scripting steps can be viewed in your CA App Synthetic Monitor customer console. Waterfall charts allow you to inspect slow loading elements, verify server response headers, etc. while our Root Cause Analysis details the performance breakdown of individual steps or page loads in replayed transactions.
