ThousandEyes integration with Browser Real User Monitoring (Browser RUM) combines application data from AppDynamics and internet network metrics from ThousandEyes to provide full-stack observability.
The internet network data in the context of Browser RUM enables you to observe and analyze the impact of network performance on application performance. Whenever there is an application issue, you can quickly identify whether the application issue is caused by a network issue.
Observe ThousandEyes internet network data in the context of Browser RUM and Browser Synthetic Monitoring data in AppDynamics:
- Observe the network metrics (packet loss, latency, and jitter) from the following ThousandEyes tests in the context of browser application metrics:
- HTTP server
- page load
- View the network health of each network path (Agent to target domain) in the context of browser application metrics.
- Analyze the impact of network performance on the browser application performance.
Identify the problematic domain whenever there is any application issue:
- When there is a high response time for end users, identify the root cause of the issue, and analyze the ThousandEyes network metrics to identify whether the network is the cause of the high response time for end users.
- When there is a performance issue from a specific domain, analyze whether the network is the cause of the performance issue of that domain.
- When there is a high response time in a specific geographic location, analyze the network metrics in those locations to check whether the network is the cause of the high response time in those locations.
- When there are errors in the browser applications, analyze whether the network is the cause of higher error rates in the browser applications.
Troubleshoot the network issues:
If you suspect that the network is the cause of the application issue, you can:
- Narrow down the network issue to specific network metrics, domain, time interval, and location and pass it on to the network team for further troubleshooting.
- Troubleshoot the network issue in ThousandEyes by selecting the appropriate ThousandEyes network tests from AppDynamics.
