An HTTP-Tracer is a synthetic test that provides performance indicators for web services.
This can be used to test multiple web services, such as web pages or API calls.
It allows constant monitoring of web services without the need for real user activities, and provides performance metrics such as:
- the web service availability status
- the network latency
- the DNS resolution process time
- the secured session establishment time
- the server response time
Therefore, this HTTP-Tracer perfectly complements the metrics provided by the Watcher and the Net-Tracer.
