Introducing website performance monitoring with WebPageTest!

Introducing Website Performance Monitoring. Easily schedule tests with varied parameters, monitor, and trend key WebPageTest metrics on a single dashboard. Receive alerts on performance thresholds.

Schedule, test, and monitor your website performance metrics in a single dashboard with the new WebPageTest feature in the Catchpoint portal.

For a long time now, we’ve been working behind the scenes to deliver one of the most widely-requested features from the WebPageTest community. WebPageTest results have always been extremely useful for performance audits, ad-hoc performance testing, and lately performance prototyping with Opportunities & Experiments. As some of our more advanced users are well aware, we support CI/CD integrations and homebrewed dashboards with the WebPageTest API.

But for those without the time or resources to build their own dashboards, or for those with complicated or sprawling websites that need serious automation for performance monitoring, it’s been tricky or impossible to get access to a real performance monitoring solution.

The WebPageTest team at Catchpoint is extremely excited to announce that as of today, we are officially supporting website performance monitoring with WebPageTest! You can now schedule, monitor, trend, and alert all the key WebPageTest result metrics over time, locations, devices, and more.
