Holistix Remote Monitor
A study by Zona Research estimated that online companies could lose more than $4.3 billion in revenues due to customer frustration over poor web site performance, yet the vast majority of companies don't even monitor their web sites! A new solution, from Wick Hill, claims to solve poor web site performance and return control of their web sites to web managers. Holistix Remote Monitor, the second component of Holistix' end-to-end, web system performance management solution, is a subscription-based service which employs a network of servers on Internet backbones around the world to simulate visits to any web site and to report performance results The service allows web managers to test the performance "health" of their web sites from a visitor's perspective by monitoring the availability and response times for URLS, customer transactions, external content providers and more. The new service goes beyond simple monitoring of a web site. It allows web managers to quickly detect, respond to and prevent web site performance problems related to Internet congestion The condition of a network when there is not enough bandwidth to support the current traffic load.

Holistix also recently introduced the latest version of its Holistix Web Manager, version 1. 1, which monitors web components behind the firewall. Together the products offer a complete end-to-end view of a web site.
All the Holistix Remote Monitor service packages use independent servers strategically placed around the world to determine how a web site is performing and to simulate a visitor's experience at any given moment. By sending server requests to a web site from multiple locations, the service allows web managers to react to problems before their customers experience any dissatisfaction, creating only a negligible load on their web infrastructure.
Using the service, web managers can keep a watch on critical site performance metrics such as the time it takes to serve web pages and the success of visitors' transactions on the site, for example form submissions, searches and purchases. They can also monitor their service level agreements with external services, such as credit card approval, advertising or news.
