Full page website performance monitoring
The Uptrends full page monitor identifies bottlenecks on your web pages.
Uptrends full page monitoring is a great way to identify bottlenecks on your web pages from the end-user perspective. It not only shows the response time of a webpage from the end-user perspective, but also shows the DNS and connection time, send-wait- and receive time, time to first byte, https handshake time, total download time and total size of all elements on the page. This means that we will review every image, script and style sheet in your web page, and display the load time and size of all these elements. We also provide the request- and response headers and server IP information which allows you to do detailed measurements.
This helps you to identify which elements slow down the user experience of your web page. Imagine that your editor accidentally inserts a very large image file on your homepage. Even though it may not interfere with the layout of your page, your readers will experience slow load times. The full page monitoring will detect this.
Third party monitoring
Likewise, suppose that you’re using a third-party script that displays ads on your website. If the advertisement supplier is experiencing problems, your website visitors may notice a degraded performance. It’s not always obvious what is slowing down your web pages, but Uptrends’ full page monitoring will show you the cause of the problem.
Our Full Page Check + (FPC+) probe divides all underlying elements of your website in ‘domain groups’ and distinguish them between 1st party and 3rd party elements. By using these groups you are able to get very specific insights into the load time, error codes, file size, and many more details of your website on a group-level. The default set of domain groups we offer are: 1st party, CDN, Social, Statistics, Ads, Uncategorized, First party overall and Third party overall.
The third party groups provide you a clear view of what influence 3rd party elements (external elements, on which you have less influence) have on the load time of your website.

How Uptrends full page monitor optimizes the visitor experience and increases your conversion rate
When you sign up for a free 4 week trial with Uptrends, you can experience how easy it is to monitor the performance of your website and which areas require optimization. No software installation is required because the Uptrends full page monitor is a fully hosted solution. You only need to enter the URL of the page you want to monitor and select the full page check as a probe type. Uptrends will monitor the returned HTML every 5 or 10 minutes, as well as monitor all page elements within the page, including images, style sheets and scripts.
Uptrends will provide you with detailed reports about the website performance, such as load times from different cities in the world, error types and the uptime. As part of our full page monitoring service, we provide you with the full page waterfall analysis report, which shows you the load time of all elements in an easy to read visual format. With our waterfall report you will be able to make your website faster and can more easily pinpoint areas on your website where performance needs optimization.
You can set user-defined time periods for custom reports, view snapshots of recorded errors and export any data or reports to a variety of formats, including Excel, PDF, email or even through our XML interface.
Uptrends can also send you alerts, to make sure you will be the first to know when your website is experiencing problems. In case your website, or an element in your web page, is slow or exceeds a maximum number of bytes, you can receive alerts by SMS, e-mail, RSS or instant messenger. You can even receive an alert when a particular percentage of elements of your HTML page fail. We even let you exclude particular elements, if you do not want to be notified when they exceed any of the limits you have set on the web page.
Full page and website performance monitoring from the end user perspective
When optimizing the visitor-, user- and customer experience on your website, it is critical to monitor the site from the end user's perspective, including the likely geographical dispersion that can often comprise your user base. By employing a global network of checkpoints in dozens of countries, we monitor and collect data from a wide number of geographically dispersed locations to ensure accurate results that cannot be achieved from single-site monitoring alone.
We have 120 monitoring checkpoints in major cities across North America, Europe, Africa, Australia, South America and Asia. Because our network of checkpoints is so extensive, you will have the ability to review the full page load times and site uptime recorded from dozens of cities around the world.
