Solution Brief

Synthetic Monitoring


Many businesses today are blind to the digital experiences of their customers and employees until a performance issue occurs. Network teams use synthetic monitoring to proactively test for performance elements, but traditional tools cannot auto-configure or adapt to ever-changing internet traffic and paths. Without providing actual network context, these tests result in time-consuming, manual configurations, and guesswork that can negatively affect network performance, the end-users and, ultimately, the business.

With Kentik Synthetic Monitoring™, part of the Kentik Network Intelligence Platform™, network teams have a fully integrated solution that frequently and autonomously measures performance and availability metrics of essential infrastructure, applications, and services. The solution presents the full network context and makes the resulting insights actionable immediately.


Kentik Synthetic Monitoring utilizes private agents that deploy quickly and easily, available for common Linux distributions operating on either X86 or ARM architectures, and a network of strategically positioned global agents in internet cities around the world and in every cloud region within AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and IBM Cloud.


Kentik Synthetic Monitoring enables network teams to test everything that matters — frequently and autonomously — with simple pricing that offers more testing at a lower cost. The management console automatically calculates the number of credits needed per test and notifies users if additional credits are needed. Kentik Pro Edition customers receive 2,500,000 credits per month. Kentik Premier Edition customers receive 5,000,000 credits per month. Additional credits are available through the purchase of a SyntheticPak.
