Ready to set up some tests within the ThousandEyes platform? Watch this tutorial to learn about the various Cloud and Enterprise Agent test types and their corresponding configurations. We’ll cover:

  • BGP Tests: BGP tests allow you to monitor for prefix propagation-related issues like BGP hijacks, route flaps, route leaks, and others.
  • DNS Server Tests: Within the ThousandEyes platform, you can set up three types of DNS tests: DNS server, DNS trace, and DNSSEC. These tests provide deeper visibility into your DNS infrastructure.
  • Web Layer Tests: The HTTP server test helps you assess the functionality and accessibility of your web servers and services. Page load tests measure the time a webpage takes to fully load and render.
  • Voice RTP Stream Test: An RTP stream test emulates the flow of voice data between two agents, simulating an IP VoIP call and allowing you to measure a variety of VoIP health metrics, providing packet loss, discards, and latency, as well as the Mean Opinion Score (MOS), which helps judge voice quality.
  • Transaction Tests: ThousandEyes transaction tests simulate users accessing web services where multiple steps may be needed, such as shopping online or logging into a website.
All fields are required.
