Our web application monitoring service is based on a real browser, so it simulates real visitors, users and customers while monitoring every step of a transaction.
Monitor multiple steps
Monitor multiple steps such as forms, logins, shopping baskets and more on your website.
Click and navigate through your site, simulating the actions of your site visitors. We record every click, selection and any text you type. Upload the transaction to your account.

Monitor uptime, errors and load time (in detail) with a real browser, exactly the way your visitors experience each element of your webpage.
The report shows the load times of all elements in an easy-to-read visual format. It helps you maximize the speed of your site by pinpointing areas where performance should be improved.
Third-party content monitoring
Use the website performance monitoring service to optimize load time and reduce issues of third-party elements such as ads, analytics and social-media scripts.
We divide all underlying elements of your website into domain groups and distinguish them between first- and third-party elements, such as First Party, CDN, Social, Statistics, Ads etc.
- Web Performance Monitoring with a genuine browser: The timing of each element is exactly as it happens in your browser!
- Monitor with a frequency of 1 - 60 minutes.
- Monitor each element of the HTML page, including style sheets, images, and first- and third-party scripts.
- Waterfall chart: All elements embedded in a page to help analyze the performance of your website and show you which element slows down your page.
- Check for the maximum size (in bytes) of the entire page, including all downloaded page elements.
- Check for the maximum size (in bytes) for a single page element (e.g., script, image or style sheet).
- Load time limits for the entire page
- Check for errors on page elements (e.g. missing images)
- Generate errors when failure occurs with a certain percentage of page elements. For example: give an alert when at least 10% of the page's elements fail.
- The ability to ignore errors for elements that come from external websites, for example, an external web analytics or ad server script
- Include/exclude third-party content
- Precise measurements per element: Resolve time, TCP Connection time, HTTPS handshake time, Send time, Wait time, Receive time
- HTTP request and response headers for each element in the waterfall let you verify that the CDN-server that was used is at the expected location
- The interactive filter inspects specific sets of files, detect duplicates and unexpected number of files or file sizes
- Interactive tooltips: Hover over each row in the waterfall to see detailed measurement data per element
Agent based server monitoring
To monitor within your network, we perform the checks on one of your servers, and push the results back to our servers. This involves running our agent software: a small satellite application. It can run on either a Windows or Linux server.
Monitor every device
You can monitor every device in your network such as Windows Server, Linux Server (Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu) or routers, PCs, printers, CPU, bandwith, memory, disk space etc.
Use SNMP monitoring, ping, connect, HTTP or performance counters (Windows and Linux) to monitor every element of your network.
All communication takes place over secure connections using HTTPS traffic. Perhaps the most important aspect of keeping your environment and data safe is that we encrypt your passwords in such a way that they can only be used by you.
Outside the firewall
Uptrends will monitor your server externally from outside your firewall, ensuring the reliability of your server. To monitor your server, you can use an unrestricted number of user-defined checkpoints from our global monitoring network.
Different server protocols
The Uptrends server monitoring service makes it possible to monitor a variety of different protocols including HTTP, HTTPS, connect, ping, SMTP, POP3, FTP, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Webservice HTTP, Webservice HTTPS and DNS.
Mail server protocols
You can monitor your e-mail server with our POP3 and SMTP protocols. This way, the availability of your e-mail server is ensured.
We offer advanced checks such as advanced DNS monitoring where you can perform DNS health checks to be sure your DNS servers are always working properly. We also offer FTP monitoring and SSL certificate monitoring.
- Server Monitoring: Monitor with a frequency of 1 - 60 minutes (depending on your Uptrends edition)
- Web services: Webservice HTTP, webservice HTTPS
- Mail servers: SMTP, POP3
- Database servers: Microsoft SQL server, MySQL
- Advanced checks: DNS, FTP
- Network checks: Ping, Connect
- User name/password authentication on all applicable protocols
The most common item you might want to verify is whether your domain name is still pointing to the IP address of your web server. By monitoring this DNS query directly, we will detect any DNS problems before your website becomes unavailable to visitors and customers.
DNS health checks
Uptrends' DNS probe lets you conduct extensive DNS health checks. For example, you can verify your website domain names (A and CNAME records), mail-server domain name mappings (MX records), DNS zone delegates (NS records), authoritative information about DNS zones (SOA records) and other DNS information.
SSL certificate expiration
The SSL certificate probe type lets you define how many days in advance that you want to receive an alert prior to your SSL certificates' expiration date. This ensures that you will have enough time to renew it. If the certificate expires, Uptrends will send you an alert when we detect the expiration of your SSL certificate.
SSL certificate fingerprints
Uptrends will check for a number of properties that should have fixed values in the certificate, including the organization name, serial number, issuer name, etc. If one of these properties is different, Uptrends will alert you immediately.
As part of your Uptrends account, you will have access to dozens of detailed reports. You can use them to optimize the performance, and you can drill down for even greater detail. We take snapshots of real errors, exactly what your visitors will see when there is an error.
