  • Since WPM builds on Orion its alerting capabilities are very good. We've always been able to generate alerts parameters to meet user needs.
  • WPM's web app monitoring capabilities were exactly what we needed. We've been able to write detailed transactions to monitor very specific app functions.
  • Occasionally we run into issues with sites that use cookies. We'd like to see improvement in handling these.
  • We sometimes struggle with sites that open new browser tabs.
We've found WPM to be a fit for every web application that we wanted to monitor. If you have a web app that you'd like monitoring/alerting for then WPM may work for you. So far our only struggles have been when after logging in the app launches a new tab.

Web Performance Monitor is used within our organization to test our web applications via workflow. It allows us a real view into each step of the transaction by producing print screens and error alerting. Web Performance Monitor is only managed by the IT organization and creates monitors at the request of engineering.
  • Testing web applications
  • Ability to log in to secure sections of websites in order to test user authentication
  • Provides a detailed history of steps taken and provides print screens of each step. If an error occurs you can see the web page to better diagnose issues.
  • The creation of tests can take some time as you are recording actions taken on web sites.
  • Ability to edit already created tests typically results in deleting steps and recreating
  • Require to create multiple iterations of similar tests in order to test individual app servers behind a load balancer
Web performance monitor is well suited if you are looking for extremely granular view into your web applications. This application allows you to go as deep as you want in testing your web application and provides history and screen shots of the sites that it monitors. It also allows for alerting based on certain thresholds of latency or failure categories.
