The iMacros web recording engine is used to record the web transactions to be monitored by End User Monitor (EUM) components. It supports WYSIWYG recording of web site and application transactions. Simply perform the web transaction you want to monitor while in recording mode. iMacros generates an editable iMacros script that defines your transaction. iMacros uses these scripts to playback the web transaction. In WhatsUp Gold, iMacros plays back the script on iDrones throughout your network to monitor the performance and verify the functionality of your web sites and applications.
You can record and play back web transactions in the iMacros Browser which is an emulated browser based on Internet Explorer. Or, you can use Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers using the iMacros browser addons. The browser addons are useful if you are concerned about the performance and function of your web transactions in a specific browser. If you don’t have a need to monitor your transactions in a specific browser, use the iMacros browser. For additional information and download, visit the iMacros website.
The iMacros Browser Enterprise Edition and Internet Explorer and Firefox browser addons are already installed on the iDrone for you to get started. Once your iDrone is operational, we recommend you install iMacros on your desktop for recording or editing iMacros scripts. If you would prefer not to install iMacros or license the iMacros browser, you can register another iDrone with WhatsUp Gold just to use for script recording and editing. Please note, End User Monitor components do not currently support the iMacros addon for Chrome.
