Planning continues here at HQ for .conf2015: The 6th Annual Splunk Worldwide Users’ Conference in Las Vegas in September. In the meantime, we’re excited to share the latest in our .conf2014 highlight series.

Presentation overview:
The Synthetic Monitoring App enables you to monitor your Web application and measure critical KPIs such as application performance and availability. This session showcases how this app can simulate user interactions around the clock and set up alerts when your application breaches its performance and availability SLAs. Elias Haddad shows how you can proactively detect application problems before your customers do. Learn how you can compare the end user performance of your application from different locations, various browsers and from a myriad of devices and isolate performance bottlenecks to prevent outages.

For the full recording, check out Using Selenium and Splunk for Transaction Monitoring Insight.

We look forward to sharing more of these over the course of the year. Click below to register for .conf2015 in September!
