Synthetic Website Monitoring

Monitor core website vitals from across the globe and gain visibility into uptime and availability. Improve end-user experience with on-the-spot service checks and synthetic transactions that optimize the health and performance of your websites.

Synthetic website monitoring made easy

Have confidence that your websites are up and accessible from one or multiple external test locations, or monitor from within your network and ensure your employees can access critical internal sites – all within the same platform as the rest of your cloud and infrastructure monitoring.

Website synthetic monitoring includes

Web checks

Make HTTP GET, HEAD or POST requests to one or more URLs, externally or from inside your network

Ping checks

Ping IP addresses, from external locations outside your network, or using LogicMonitor collectors, ping within your network

Website downtime alerting

Raise alerts on your websites after a specified number of checks fail at one or more locations, automatically

Site availability, graphed and monitored

Spot issues before they impact end users.LogicMonitor makes sure site availability is graphed, monitored, and alerted on in real-time. Get alerts on the specific circumstances you care about, including:

  • Content load issues
  • HTTP status codes
  • Load times that exceed thresholds
  • Bottlenecks that impact service (DNS resolve times, read time, etc.)

Intelligent website alerting

Cut through alert noise with ease

  • Configure alerts or schedule downtime on a per-Service Check basis
  • Define alerting based on overall reachability and health from all locations, and/or from specific sites
  • Quickly view and filter alerts on the general Alerts Page or the Alerts Tab for each Service Check or Service Check Group
  • Filter by instance, alert severity, and more, and control which escalation chains receive alerts

Comprehensive website metrics

Measure key metrics to gain insight on core web vitals and improve your website performance. Dive deeper into website monitoring through ping and web checks that give you detailed metrics. Collected data is available for viewing from a website’s Graphs and Raw Data tabs, or on a customizable dashboard as a widget. Both of these tabs track website data on a per-checkpoint basis and on an overall checkpoint basis.

Advanced synthetic transactions

Does your website perform when doing things that real-world users do? Multi-step business transactions are correlated with underlying infrastructure, including network and website performance issues, to determine the root cause of service delivery failure. Compose multi-step tests that:

  • Simulate user transactions
  • Check for specific content
  • Handle authentication

–all from actual browsers all over the world driven by robots (not humans.)

Track your company’s network and devices with LogicMonitor.

It’s great since we don’t have to install bothersome agents on the devices or hardware that we want to monitor. I didn’t even need to consult the instructions or contact customer support when I wanted to add a device; the process is simple and easy to follow.

The tool for strategic Managed Services partners

SolarWinds had the big breach just as we left it. We loved how powerful it was, and how customizable – however, it is an ON-Prem tool, and as a growing MSP, that dynamic didn’t and couldn’t scale.

Website monitoring benefits

Ping Checks

Find out how your website is performing by monitoring trace route, status, maximum/minimum/average round trip tips, number of sent and received packets, and more.

Web Checks

Monitor response time, status, read time, SSL handshake time, SSL status, connect time, DNS resolve time and more!

Deploy Rapidly

LogicMonitor comes stock with best practice dashboards and alert thresholds for your website checks. Within minutes you will have the data you need to graph, alert, and optimize performance for your internal and external websites from around the world – without installing agents on your web servers.

Reduce alert noise

Put an end to alert storms with intelligent anomaly detection. Distinguish service-impacting alerts from non-service-impacting alerts, and reduce how often you get woken up in the middle of the night.

Identify performance trends

Pre-configured alert thresholds ensure that you receive meaningful alerts right from the start, and help you to proactively prevent downtime. Easily tune thresholds on a global, group, or object level.

Set scheduled downtime

Set scheduled downtime (SDT) for websites to stop alerts from notifying you, while still showing records of what alerts were triggered during your downtime

What is website monitoring?

Website monitoring monitors website accessibility and functionality as experienced by the general public via external web checks, and website accessibility and functionality as experienced by your business’ internal users via ping checks.

What is synthetic monitoring?

Synthetic monitoring is an approach to website monitoring where a website (or web environment) is tested by simulating a site request, such as availability.

What are synthetics?

Synthetics are simulated checks used in synthetic monitoring, allowing users to test environments without causing strain to their systems.

Will gathering web metrics slow my site down?

Gathering web metrics from synthetic web checks and ping checks do not slow a site down

How is website data collected?

Website data is collected through synthetic transactions, where the results of a simulated test are gathered and recorded
