With Real User Monitoring you gain a more accurate and real-time view into the performance of your services as experienced by actual users
What is Real User Monitoring?
Real User Monitoring or RUM are measurements taken by real users. One method which RUM can be deployed is by inserting a lightweight snippet of code (or tag) into a website and when someone visits the site, the code is executed in the background and benchmarks are taken directly from the users’ browser or device. At PerfOps, we use this method and to avoid any interference to the users’ experience, our tag only runs after the webpage or app has finished loading. To ensure fairness and more reliable data, every performance test takes an equal number of benchmarks from each provider.
Benefits of RUM
No CDN or Cloud Provider can perform the best in every region all of the time. Using multiple CDN’s which leverage RUM data is one way to ensure optimal application delivery across all regions. With FlexBalancer, it’s easy to deploy an intelligent load balancing solution which dynamically selects the best performing CDN at any given time.
