eValid's Application Monitoring Bundle provides support for deep transaction monitoring of any type of web browser enabled application. The monitoring capability includes performance checking, content validation, automatic test data generation, command line interaction, and automated failure recovery modes.

eValid's Application Monitoring Bundle provides support for deep transaction monitoring of any type of web browser enabled application. Using eValid's InBrowser™ recording engine you can create a test that emulates ANY user interaction with 100% accuracy and repeatability. Because the tests are run from a browser, there's no approximation, no "virtual user", and no gaps test capability. eValid monitoring tests are genuine simulations of end user experience and can deliver accurate "last mile" analysis of user's experience. Your server perceives eValid as an actual user, working with your application with full context and realistic speeds.

Universal Application Monitoring
With rapid growth of the Internet worldwide, and evolution of the global marketplace, you need to monitor how your web browser enabled rich internet applications behave as seen by your end users -- at the end of the "last mile" of web application delivery: a users's desktop.

Script Creation Process
eValid records scripts by capturing the internal state of the eValid browser as it works on your live website. eValid has never failed to provide scripts that play back correctly and reliably no matter how complex the application. eValid handles Flash, Applets, AJAX, JavaScript, ActiveX, and multi-window, multi-frame applications with ease. eValid scripting carries a 100% guarantee of playback capability.

Script Reliability
eValid recorded test scripts play back into the eValid playback engine with complete accuracy. Special provisions in eValid make sure that the test playbacks self-synchronize and handle unusual events like popups and user authentications automatically.

Advanced Validation Functions
eValid has very detailed validation modes which allow you to confirm very specific details about results pages that are generated in a monitoring test. Details can include visible text, images, links, and DOM object properties.

Adaptive Playback
This built-in feature lets a playback succeed even when the underlying page changes shape, content, and link structure.

Test Script Operation
You can amplify your test efficiency by organizing tests under Windows scheduler and batch commands. Tests run flawlessly with the eValid system and can be programmed to report PASS/FAIL data automatically.

Error Flag Processing
eValid provides a variety of OnCondition flag processing commands to permit a monitoring script to recover from unusual playback behaviors.

3-Tier, Fail Safe Operation
eValid playbacks for critical applications can be organized into a 3-tier form, so that an initial failure triggers a second and third try before pager alarms are sent in error.

Email/Pager Results
When necessary, results of tests that reveal problems can be communicated via Email or Pager messages for immediate attention.

Integration with Network Monitoring Systems
evalid is easily integrated with all popular network monitoring systems, including Nagios, Hyperic, Groundwork, Zenoss, Tivoli and a range of reporting solutions.

Internal Charting and Logging
The eValid engine includes extensive event logging and activity charting activities for complete stand-alone monitoring applications.

Batch Interface
Individual eValid tests can be scheduled for autonomous operation via the included command line interface. The interface has over 60 switches to configure playback operations.
