Revolutionize Real-time Website Monitoring With Webmon

Revolutionize Real-time Website Monitoring with Webmon

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”
– Lord Kelvin (1824-1907), British physicist and engineer.

Lord Kelvin, father of the absolute temperature scale now named after him, got it right more than a hundred years ago. Measurement is critical to improvement, whether it be a product or process. Even the management doctrine of “What cannot be measured cannot be managed” has its origins in Kelvin’s pronouncement.

In a world of business that operates 24x7x365 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year – in other words, always), real-time monitoring of websites and measurement of performance is an absolute necessity for business success. There are no holidays, no sick days, no maintenance days (unless absolutely, absolutely necessary) in the online world – websites have to be always up and running.

Consider the following scenario: You are the proprietor of a business with significant online presence and get a large chunk of business through your website. It’s Independence Day in the US, and all your American staff are on holiday. However, one of your major clients in Asia is not. If your website goes down that day and no one’s aware, you may very well lose a major order to a competitor.

This is where a monitoring service like Webmon (www.webmon.com) comes in. With its real-time monitoring service, you’re never uninformed if your website goes down. The service sends out alerts to designated individuals in your organization if anything goes awry, so that remedial action may be taken as soon as possible. And it’s not only websites that Webmon monitors – API, DNS, transactions, etc. are all in its purview.

Transaction monitoring is something that every e-commerce business should be interested in. By monitoring pages that require several steps with cookies/sessions passed along, the business can keep an eagle’s eye on its login process, shopping cart, REST API, etc. The presentation of information in multiple formats, including graphical, enables the client to measure uptime and performances from various regions, providing critical insight on what’s broken or needs improvement.

And the best thing about this service is that it’s on the cloud. Being a SaaS application, it requires no local installation; sign up, access and data retrieval can be done through any browser over the Internet. With so much business shifting to the Internet via the cloud, a monitoring service like Webmon can be an useful addition to the corporate arsenal.
