    Optimizing synthetic monitoring capabilities

  • Web:

The solution involves leveraging Terraform for IaC, implementing HAProxy for enhanced reliability, utilizing Puppet and Foreman for streamlined node and config management, deploying Nomad agents for optimized job scheduling, and employing Docker & Docker-Compose for consistent application containerization, collectively forming a comprehensive approach to enhance synthetic monitoring capabilities.

The story

The case study revolves around enhancing synthetic monitoring capabilities for an enterprise. Synthetic monitoring involves simulating user interactions with a website or application to assess its performance. In this context, the focus is on understanding the time taken by the API and evaluating how the site performs in various geographical locations.

The challenge

The challenges faced include implementing enterprise features for synthetic monitoring. This entails measuring the API response times and assessing the website’s performance across multiple geographical locations. To address this, several responsibilities and technologies need to be considered.

The solution

The proposed solution to address the challenge of enhancing synthetic monitoring capabilities encompasses a strategic integration of various technologies and responsibilities. Firstly, Terraform is employed for Infrastructure as Code (IaC), automating the provisioning and management of infrastructure to ensure efficiency and consistency. Additionally, a High Availability Proxy (HAProxy) is implemented to augment system reliability and performance. Node and configuration management are streamlined through the utilization of Puppet and Foreman, contributing to an organized and efficient system.


Nomad agents are deployed to facilitate job scheduling and workload orchestration, optimizing resource utilization. Furthermore, Docker and Docker-Compose are utilized to containerize applications, fostering consistency and facilitating seamless deployment. The combined use of these technologies – Terraform, HAProxy, Nomad Agents, Docker, and Docker-Compose – forms a comprehensive solution that not only addresses the challenge but also establishes a robust and well-organized infrastructure for synthetic monitoring.

The outcome

The result of implementing this solution is an enhanced synthetic monitoring system. This system provides insights into API response times and evaluates the performance of the website across multiple geographic locations. The use of Terraform, HAProxy, Nomad Agents, Docker, and Docker-Compose collectively contributes to a robust and efficient infrastructure, ensuring reliable and optimized synthetic monitoring capabilities for the enterprise.
