Catchpoint Systems, a provider of Web performance monitoring solutions for Internet-dependent businesses, announced key product advancements that give customers the ability to monitor performance from the Google Chrome Browser (v15) and measure the impact and performance of third party content on Web pages and Web applications in the most detailed and sophisticated way available.

With the beta release of Catchpoint’s Google Chrome Browser performance monitoring offering, customers can now monitor and understand performance problems specific to that browser.

Google Chrome services more than 20 percent of the global Internet browser market with rapid adoption predicted to continue, and for some of Catchpoint’s customers, usage is as much as 50 percent, making it a critical piece of the overall performance monitoring picture.

In addition to Chrome browser monitoring capabilities, Catchpoint’s latest product release gives customers insight and tools to quickly identify when a change in the performance of a Web page or Web application is caused by a third party, such as ads and CDNs, and pinpoint which vendor caused the disruption.

Features include:

Advanced Metrics and Insight: Metrics and insight to understand performance impact better, including the ability to see advanced statistics for metrics such as median, geometrical mean, 95th percentile, and standard deviation for up to two full years. Customers also have the ability to chart the performance metrics related to a single hostname.

Zone Charting: Customers can now chart the performance metrics related to a group of requests and hosts – called Zones – including ads, widgets, analytics, and CDNs. Catchpoint provides predefined Zones, saving users the time and resources typically spent categorizing third party content on their site. In addition, users can create Zones not only by domain, but also the entire URL or IP address of the servers.

Catchpoint has also become a member of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Solution Providers Program and added 12 new monitoring agents globally, to all six commercial regions operated by AWS. In addition, Catchpoint is launching nodes in Dallas; Shanghai and Beijing, China; and Bangalore, India.
