Every hosted application can have anyone across the globe as its end user. The speed of an application depends on the geography from where the end user accesses it. Marketing teams spend a lot of money to attract global customers; for every 1 second of slowness, one can lose as much as 12% of the customer base. Hence it is very important to ensure that every internet facing application is responding faster and faster to the end users.
TestLuas SUM helps you to find out how your app responds, when it is accessed from various geo locations. TestLuas has got synthetic nodes across the globe. TestLuas SUM agents open a real browser to find the response time from those locations.
TestLuas Synthetic User Monitoring (SUM) is to monitor the application behavior (URL or transaction). This will give complete time breakdown of the page and its components. SUM also helps to find the Connection time, DNS, Sending, Waiting and Receive time for each page component.
