DejaClick Offers 'True User Monitoring'

Vote 0 Votes

Developers looking for help maintaining performance and availability and security of complex Web applications may want to give DejaClick a look.

The program - available as a Firefox extension - was released by AlertSite on October 16.

Ken Godskind of AlertSite"The marketplace in general has addressed Web site monitoring concerns by capturing instructions as they would be transmitted over the Internet; the norm in the industry until now was to provide an emulation of the browser," AlertSite's VP of marketing Ken Godskind explained.

"With today's applications, that's just not good enough," he noted. "Test scripts don't involve actual use of the browser and can't maintain state, session and navigation. DejaClick records and plays back completely within the browser and handles all the technology all that the browser can handle; we call this 'true user monitoring,'" Godskind said.

Godskind also described how DejaClick's provides an "objective set of metrics to note if if service-levels met for specific application level availability and performance" - and its ability to help maintain security.

As an alternative to Dejaclick, I suggest iMacros, http://www.iopus.com/imacros/firefox/

Just like Dejaclick it is a free Firefox addon that can record and replay tests inside the web browser. But in addition it can also automate file downloads or upload data from a CSV spreadsheet file. That is very useful for us (insurance company).
