SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor (WPM) is a comprehensive web application monitoring product that can detect website performance issues based on location, transaction, and page element, and monitor website load times so you can fix issues before users are affected.

Use the built-in recorder to capture a series of transaction steps that simulate end user actions, such as logging in, clicking buttons, completing forms, and running Adobe® Flash® elements for online shopping carts. Then push recordings to remote players to replay them from anywhere in the world, as often as you want, and analyze the results.

With WPM, you can: 

  • Get an accurate sampling of web sites and services from the viewpoint of end users in multiple locations.
  • Monitor the uptime and user experience (UX) of web applications, such as Microsoft® Exchange.
  • Display alerts and graphs for websites on both sides of the firewall.
  • Drill into different types of data such as load times, transaction availability, and durations.
