Coralogix’s Real User Monitoring (RUM) is an advanced monitoring solution that provides unparalleled visibility into your application’s frontend performance, all from the perspective of real users in real time. With RUM, you can gain a comprehensive understanding of how your application performs across a variety of browsers, devices, and networks, allowing you to quickly detect issues that might be affecting your users’ experience.
Whether you’re looking to optimize your app’s performance, reduce downtime, or simply improve your user experience, RUM provides the tools and insights you need to optimize engagement with your application.
What is Real User Monitoring?
RUM allows you to optimize your website’s overall performance using four types of functionalities for monitoring web and mobile applications.
Error Tracking. Monitor and analyze errors that occur on the client-side during real user interactions with your website or web application. Identify and understand issues that users encounter over time and versions to enhance the overall user experience. Find out more here.
User Sessions. Investigate each and every user session – a user journey on your web or mobile application, including page views and associated telemetry. A user session typically starts when a user visits a website or performs a specific action and ends when the user either closes the browser window, navigates to a different website, or remains inactive for a specified period. Understand how users are engaging with your site over time and how performance metrics might change within a single session.
PagePerformance. Measure and analyze how a web page or web application performs from the perspective of real users. Inspect page load time and rendering speed, which reflect the users’ experience while accessing the site.
RUM Analytics. Collect real user analytics – including page views, unique visitors, geographic distribution, and user interaction with your application (page visited, resources loaded, clicks, interactions, feature usage, and errors).
RUM is valuable for a wide range of companies and individuals who operate websites or web applications. By gaining insights into real user experiences, these entities can make data-driven decisions to optimize their digital platforms and achieve their business objectives. Check out some of these use-cases below.
User Sessions. A game development company leverages RUM to gain insights into player behavior. The RUM tool reveals that players tend to drop off at a certain level in the game. By analyzing user sessions, the company’s developer discovers that the level is too challenging for many players, leading to disengagement. Armed with this knowledge, the developer tweaks the level design to strike a better balance, resulting in improved player retention and more positive reviews.
Page Performance. An electronics retailer relies on RUM to monitor their website’s performance. The RUM tool highlights that users on mobile devices experience slower load times on the checkout page. Using these RUM insights, the retailer identifies that an overly complex checkout form is causing delays. They simplify the form, leading to faster load times and reduced cart abandonment.
