CIO Resolution #5: Resolve Issues Before They Occur with Synthetic Transaction Monitoring

This is the fifth in our several part series, “CIO Resolutions for 2015.”

Problem: You only know you have a problem when you have a problem

How does response time vary in Asia and Europe? What impact would a DDoS attack have on our EMEA firewalls? Guessing is not a strategy. Proactively testing scenarios with synthetic transaction monitors eliminates uncertainty with all data required to make strategic decisions about where to invest, how to staff, and how to remediate when early indicators surface.

Solution: Execute synthetic transactions to discover problems before they happen

With AccelOps, you can synthetically monitor any server, application, resource, or device using any of 12 different protocols or recorded Selenium script, then take action based on generated output using complex patterns of expected conditions. Experience your critical services from the perspective of end-users and take preventive action when performance drops below pre-defined thresholds. For example, test web applications by loading webservers and measuring page load time. Or test intrusion prevention readiness by measuring response to synthetic transactions from known bad IP addresses.
