Novosibirsk, Russia -- February 25, 2014 - IPHostMonitor Inc., the developer of reliable monitoring tools, announces the new release of IPHost Network Monitor, the monitoring software for uptime and performance monitoring of e-commerce web sites / applications, various servers, network traffic, services, and equipment.
Now Web Transaction Monitor supports a new engine for recording and monitoring based on the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser. So IPHost Network Monitor users can monitor state-of-the-art web sites and web applications, actually any web application compatible with IE can be monitored using Web Transaction Monitor. The other significant features are advanced step-by-step replay and more convenient web transaction editing and maintenance.
Web Transaction Monitor (WTM) provides web site owners and webmasters with a tool designed for end-to-end monitoring of web sites and web based applications. WTM stands apart from most of the traditional web monitoring tools thanks to its ability to monitor whole web transactions like an entire checkout process for an e-commerce site. The tool simulates the steps of real user activity so it is able to monitor what’s up with the real user experience of an online shop or enterprise web application. The tool notifies persons concerned (by email, SMS, instant messenger or by other means) if the performance becomes unacceptable, some step of transaction has failed or downtime occurs. Traditional web site monitoring tools are often not quite up to the mark to detect malfunctions in database or application servers.
This end-to-end monitoring is an essential task for each business that relies on web applications in its everyday activity. For internet companies whose core business is provided by web sites, applications and services such monitoring is a vital part of their business operations.
A WTM user need not be an expert in monitoring and web applications to create a meaningful web transaction monitor. The browser-based recorder allows creating a monitor by simply navigating through the web pages which use the functionality that should be monitored. The Replay function provides a way to visually check that web transaction recording goes flawlessly and the resulting monitor will work correctly. This function is extremely helpful when a performance or availability problem occurs in a web application; replaying the same request sequence helps to understand which steps are OK and which are not as well as validating the fixes made to restore operability.
Web Transaction Monitor is available as an add-on for IPHost Network Monitor and priced at $199 for 5-monitor packs, the option with an unlimited number of WTM monitors is priced at $499.
