Synthetic monitoring for your vital click flows
Broken signup forms and flaky shopping carts are extremely frustrating to your customers. With Checkly's Browser checks you can accurately simulate interaction with your site and validate the correctness and performance of all your crucial click paths.
Your checks are run in actual Chrome browsers to achieve a 100% match with real world conditions. We run each session in a sealed off sandbox for extra security.
Validate all the things
In a Browser check you can check for specific content items, browser responses, visibility and error responses.
Take a screen shot at any stage in your transaction for quick and easy reference. You can take full page shots, or just a specific page element for more focus.
We monitor your transactions from data center locations around the world.
Integrate your Browser checks into your QA or continuous delivery process by triggering adhoc runs from GitHub or the command line.
Use our browser plugin to record a script and import it into Checkly. Want more control? Dive into the code and tweak your script to perfection.
How it works
Checkly uses the Chrome Puppeteer framework to accurately simulate interactions with a Chrome browser. Getting a monitoring script going is a lot easier than you might think. Just follow the steps below and you'll be up in no time.
Use our in app debugger to iterate on your script and directly see the results. Add extra assertions, screenshots and navigation actions. Add the industry standard Mocha and Chai libraries for a familiar workflow.
Run it every ten minutes
Schedule your script to run as often as every ten minutes. A regular interval gives you an accurate insight into how your vital transactions are performing over time. We also give you full access to the log files for each run in case an alert is triggered.
Coding your own scripts lets you control exactly how your click paths should interact with the browser. However, you don't need to start there. We give you a built-in example library of examples and the Puppeteer Recorder Chrome browser extension to get started ASAP.
Our examples library contains example scripts that cover a range of scenario's: from scraping content and validating text to login and shopping carts. Use them as pa jumping off point and customize them for your own situation.
Install the Puppeteer Recorder browser extension in your Chrome browser and start recording scripts in under a minute. This extension has a ton of options for tweaking your scripts as you click through your site and fill out web forms.
