Load Testing and Monitoring Network

Posted on 3.09.2009

Web app experience management-service provider Gomez doubled the number of last-mile measurement points on its ExperienceFirst network to 80,000 end-user desktop computers in 162 countries. In the business of testing and monitoring, that's a massive number unmatched by few, if any.

Gomez' ExperienceFirst network is a global network that tests and monitors the performance of Web applications from the outside-in using four perspectives: end-user desktop computers, Internet backbone nodes, actual users’ Web browsers and a virtual test bed of  500+ combinations of browser and operating systems.

Testing at the last mile exposes how variables like location, consumer-grade ISPs, content delivery networks, connection speeds and computer types all impact the end-user’s Web performance. With over 80,000 measurement points, businesses are able to identify the root causes of localized performance issues like slow-loading pages, missing content and transaction errors, which could jeopardize their revenues, brand reputation and customer satisfaction.
