Scripting (End User Monitor)

This component enables you to monitor the experience of end users for specific web transactions – a series of steps through a web site or application. By continuously replaying your recorded web transactions from anywhere in your network, End User Monitor (EUM) components can let you know when your web sites or applications are down, broken, or slow before your end-users do. Before configuring an End User Monitor component in WhatsUp Gold, you must:

End User Monitor components require an iDrone (EUM Poller) registered with WhatsUp Gold. iDrone software installed on a VM is an iDrone virtual appliance, which you can locate anywhere in your network. They replay your recorded web site and application transactions, just as an end user, measuring response times and testing functionality. iDrones are not licensed. You may deploy as many as you like, such as one at headquarters and one at a branch office, to give you multiple perspectives of an application’s performance. For information on installing and configuring iDrone, see Configuring iDrone (EUM Poller).

Ipswitch’s iMacros web recording engine is used to record the web transactions to be monitored by End User Monitor components. Simply perform the web transaction you want to monitor while in recording mode. iMacros will generate an editable iMacros script that defines your transaction. The contents of the iMacros scripts are included in End User Monitor components’ configuration. WhatsUp Gold passes the scripts’ text to iDrones, which replay the macros, just as if an end user was performing the transactions.
