Web App Performance Management; Scalable Switches

Empirix OneSight 4.8

Empirix promises improved emulation of the end-user experience in its soon-to-be-released OneSight 4.8 Web application performance-management solution. By developing transactions for analysis based on browser-object models rather than protocol streams, OneSight adapts easily to the protocol-level variation of highly dynamic sites. Empirix's VisualScript technology lets you script virtual customer transactions without having to code in a proprietary language manually. Automatic performance tracking is used to guarantee SLAs (service-level agreements). Testing data is taken from Empirix's integrated e-Test Web testing solution. Available: Dec. 15. Starts at $50,000. Empirix, (866) 228-3781, (781) 993-8500.
