Scheduled Tests

Scheduled tests run from Endpoint Agents at regularly scheduled intervals. You can create HTTP server tests and agent-to-server tests to run without user interaction, and to run as long as an Endpoint Agent is online, providing data from your remote workers, home workers, and smaller branch offices.

Network Layer - Agent-to-Server Tests

An agent-to-server test measures round-trip network performance between an agent and a remote server. The target may be either be an IP address or hostname.

Typical Use Cases

  • Measuring round-trip network performance from multiple vantage points.
  • Monitoring for, and comparing performance as a result of, network path changes.
  • Verifying target availability.
  • Identifying network degradation along the network path.
  • Verifying network management of DSCP, MTU, and optimization.
  • Monitoring ingress traffic load distribution across ISPs.

Web Layer - HTTP Server Tests

An HTTP server test measures the availability and performance of an HTTP service, whether public or private. HTTP server tests include network layer agent-to-server tests using either TCP or ICMP.

Typical Use Cases

  • Alerting on HTTP availability and performance metrics by office or group of agents.
  • Monitoring web application performance from company workstations.
