Simplicity

Simplicity is the philosophy behind instant@larm. All collected data is presented in clear but detailed graphs and reports, which can be used as documentation internally as well as externally.

Synthetic monitoring

instant@larm is a synthetic website-, application- and API-monitoring service, which is carried out using a scripted real web browser. The service is able to identify problems and determine if a website, an API or an application is slow and experiencing downtime before it affects actual end-users or customers.

User friendly graphs and reports

It’s possible to generate user friendly graphs to show data like Time-to-first-Byte (TTFB), Time-to-Render (TTR), Document Complete, Fully Loaded, number of Requests and the PageSize. The graphs will visualize how the End-Users experience the webpage.

instant@larm measures the website’s user’s experience

Simulates the user flow on the website
