Synthetic Monitoring - API and Browser Testing | Datadog

Simplified Synthetic Monitoring

End-to-end visibility across the stack in a single platform

Proactively monitor your endpoints with API Tests

Alert on the global performance and availability of your endpoints.

  • Monitor and maintain your SLAs
  • Validate HTTP requests to your services from several locations
  • Out-of-the-box integration with APM, infrastructure, and logs

Monitor critical transactions and user journeys with our code-free, GUI-based web recorder

Fully hosted, automated tests ensure that important user experiences are preserved.

  • Waterfall visualization of each step with screenshots of end-user view
  • Powerful validations with use of flexible assertions, subtests and variables
  • Breakdown of performance by selected locations and devices
Monitor critical user journeys and transactions in real-time

Monitor any environment from your own secured private locations

Gain visibility into internal and external apps from inside your network

  • Easily deploy and scale with our integrations with Docker, Kubernetes, and more
  • Create custom locations in areas that are mission-critical to your business
  • Compare application performance as experienced by users from both inside & outside the internal network

Save time with Self-Maintaining tests

Keep your teams focused on building new features, not fixing brittle tests.

  • Browser Tests intelligently re-identify elements even after UI changes
  • Automatically updates existing tests to monitor new UI elements
  • Reduce noise from broken tests as a cause of alert fatigue

Full-Stack Visibility

Reduce mean time to resolution with unified visibility across your stack.

  • See metrics, traces, and logs in the context of your test runs without having to switch between various platforms
  • Visualize uptime data alongside key business metrics
  • Discover issues earlier by running synthetic tests in your continuous integration workflow
Easily correlate metrics, traces and logs during test runs
