Getting Started with Eggplant Monitoring Insights
Eggplant Monitoring Insights lets you perform consistent and repeatable testing of your website via its stable testing platform. It provides additional modules that allow you to set download speeds on monitors such that every test that you run has the same download speed. This is particularly useful to make sure your testing is reliably consistent as it prevents variations in tests that are normally caused due to congestion or the number of users involved.
