Browser Real User Monitoring (RUM) presents information in these views:

The Web App Dashboard

This view is good for getting a high-level understanding of how your app is performing overall.

Web App Overview

The Overview tab is made up of a set of widgets showing common usage metrics.  You can add, delete, move, and resize widgets as you wish.  If you see a metric that interests you, click through to the main view. If you are using the Synthetic Beta, data from both RUM and Synthetic (separated by color) can show up here.

For more information, see The Web App Dashboard View.

 Web App Geo Dashboard

The Geo Dashboard view provides high level insight into how your application is performing across the world for your users. The size of a dot indicates the number of page views or Ajax requests from that region, and the color indicates the average End User Response time in that region (red is slow).  You can click to drill down to areas of specific interest. You can also see the same information presented in tabular form by clicking the grid icon in the upper left of the panel. If you are using the Synthetic Beta, you can also select to see either RUM or Synthetic data displayed here.

For more information, see The Web App Dashboard View.

Usage Stats

The Usage Stats view presents aggregated page load usage data based on the browser type and device/platform employed by your users. The view also breaks out performance by type and usage by country.

For more information, see The Web App Dashboard View.

Pages & Ajax Requests

This view is good for tracking the performance of individual pages and components, and understanding any issues that may be emerging.

Pages & AJAX Requests

The Pages & Ajax Requests view shows you detailed lists of how each of your pages, Ajax requests, iframes, and virtual page types are performing over time.  You can look at All Pages for an overall sense or select a Top Pages view to see the worst performing pages sorted by common metrics like Page views with JavaScript Errors and First Byte Time.  And you can drill down to a graphical dashboard showing a wide range of charted performances characteristics for any specific request type.

For more information, see The Pages & Ajax Requests View.


The Analyze view allows you to query a complete repository of all traffic data that Browser RUM has collected in the past two weeks.

For more information, see Browser Analyze.

Browser Snapshots

The Browser Snapshot view provides access to detailed information for individual requests.  The list includes both periodic snapshots of requests operating within normal boundaries and problem snapshots of requests that have exceeded one or more configurable performance criteria.  It also shows any Synthetic snapshots you may have created. Double-clicking a specific item takes you to a detailed graphical representation of the execution flow of that request and other data associated with it.


For more information, see Browser Snapshots.

Synthetic - Beta

Browser Synthetic Monitoring uses geographically distributed software agents to generate snapshots and aggregate metrics of web page download performance on a scheduled basis.  This allows you to monitor the performance of critical pages independently of user generated load. It also lets you compare synthetic and real user load by page and region to get a deeper understanding of what is impacting any, particularly outlier, performance issues.  You can also use synthetic data to test for SLA compliance.

For more information, see Synthetic - Beta
