Getting Started With Transactions

Some applications require more complex monitoring that may involve a sequence of steps. ThousandEyes transaction tests accommodate this need for adaptive monitoring.

Getting Started with Transactions reviews how to implement and utilize your own ThousandEyes transaction tests. You can configure ThousandEyes transaction tests to mimic user actions or API sequences that provide deep insight into the user experience. These capabilities enable you to help ensure that the user journey completes successfully or, in the event that a problem occurs, can be rapidly isolated to an application or network issue.
