Web Transaction Monitor Reviews

Automates access where authentication expected

Comments: Pros: this add-on allows easy checking of network devices and other facilities where Web interface requires logging in. Not all the functions are available from SNMP or alike, using Web interface can be the only access point. Monitor allows logging in as if human operator and navigating to certain page to get required data.

Cons: there are cases when complex Ajax-style pages are processed. This add-on doesn't always manage to handle them as I need. I hope they will do that in further versions.

Experience: the add-on loads starting page in browser-like window, I only need to do actions I need to be replayed afterwards (enter input, click buttons etc). So interface is easy to comprehend. There were cases when I needed assistance to understand how to bypass Ajax-style changes, and its support helped me to figure that out.

Comments: Pros: Web Transaction Monitor emulates human visitor actions. Open an online shop page, log in, search for known product. Easy way to monitor sections of an online shop, you only need to do what you would actually do on actual site.

Cons: certain techniques are not yet supported. Sometimes that can be handled by manually adjusting monitoring steps, sometimes not. More support for dynamic pages would be good to have.

Experience: this is advanced monitor type for its parent product, IPHost. Makes easier to monitor sites where authentication is expected. Support provided is good, in timely manner.
