Real User Monitoring: Real user monitoring leads to a better customer experience

SharePath provides real user monitoring functionality that can monitor your end user’s true experience with your web applications. By measuring your web experience as it is perceived on 100% of your end users’ desktops, you get an accurate picture of your availability, response times and service level performance.

“Now we can quickly diagnose problems in real time, as they arise, and measure ourselves accurately against service level agreements.”

SharePath monitors your web end-user experience using dedicated client-side server collectors. Measurements are sent over the existing http/https channel and collected by the SharePath Web Server Collector that resides on your web servers. Finally the collected data is sent to the SharePath Management server, where it is processed, analyzed and published to the dashboards.
