Novosibirsk, Russia - August 21, 2013 - IPHostMonitor Inc., the developer of reliable monitoring tools, announces new features in IPHost Network Monitor, piece of software for uptime and performance monitoring of e-commerce web sites and web applications, various servers, network services and equipment.
The most important new feature is a support of a new engine for recording and monitoring based on Microsoft Internet Explorer browser in Web Transaction Monitor. Now 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. Other significant features are advanced step by step replay and functionality that facilitates 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 traditional web monitoring tools thanks to its ability to monitor the 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, or instant messenger) if performance becomes unacceptable, some step of transaction fails or downtime occurs.
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 containing functionality subject to monitoring. The Replay function provides means to visually check that web transaction recording goes flawlessly and the resulting monitor works 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 operations produce expected result, and which do not. Replaying also allows 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.
