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 browser tests

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

  • Waterfall visualization of each step with screenshots of end-user view
  • Breakdown of performance by selected locations and devices
  • Fast root cause analysis and troubleshooting with APM integration
Monitor critical user journeys and transactions in real-time

Create browser tests in minutes with the self-maintaining Web Recorder

Easy-to-use, code-free interface to record tests of critical user journeys.

  • Record user actions via a GUI-based Web Recorder
  • Powerful validations with use of flexible assertions and variables
  • Empower non-technical teams to create browser tests

Save time with AI-driven, Self-Maintaining tests

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