Web Page Performance Monitoring
Dareboost provides monitoring features (synthetic monitoring) based on our web performance testing technology. This monitoring is based on the Google Chrome browser (Real Browser Monitoring) and all our advanced options are available.
Without any installation, you can monitor both your web pages and your competitors' to feed interactive and customizable dashboards, offering many web performance metrics. You can also set up alerts to ensure you are meeting your own objectives!
Web page monitoring is the ideal service to monitor your landing pages accessed directly by visitors (regardless of the source: search engine, URL entry or advertising campaign). If you want to measure the performance of a shopping cart page, a search results page or a restricted area of your website, we recommend that you use our User Journey monitoring feature. You will thus be able to reproduce a whole navigation scheme using the browser cache in your performance measurements.
Monitor a new page
You can create a new monitoring in several ways:
- From the list of your monitored pages ("Monitoring" menu), by clicking on the "Monitor a page" button
- From an existing monitoring, using the "Actions" drop-down ("Duplicate" action)
You will then access to a form, where you just have to choose a name for your monitoring. Afterward, this name will be used on our website and our emails. It will also help you to retrieve your monitoring thanks to our search module: so do not hesitate to use a specific naming convention, especially if you intend to monitor numerous web pages with your Dareboost account.
You then have to configure your test, with exactly the same basic and advanced options as our performance tests.
Next step: select your monitoring frequency. The available frequencies depend on the plan you have subscribed:
- Daily (1 test per 24H)
- Hourly (1 test per hour)
- 1 test every 30 minutes
- 1 test every 15 minutes
Note that if you have chosen the daily frequency, you can define the approximate time of the executions (if you choose 14:00, the test will automatically be launched between 13:40 and 14:20).
Last step: you can enable/disable the integration of this monitoring in the weekly summary we are sending to the main email address of your Dareboost account.
Thereafter, you will be able to edit the monitoring at any time to change any of these settings.
We can provide a "repeated view" option for our customers. This feature allow an additional measurement for every performance check of the monitored pages. The second test is conducted with a cache already initialized on the web browser (by the first visit of the page). Feel free to get in touch for a quote.
