Web Regression Testing with AlertFox

Friday, 04 March 2011 by

Many companies maintain a duplicate version of their website (more or less hidden) in order to test code updates. With AlertFox, a simple web regression setup would look like this: First, there is the test site running the latest code base. It must be web-accessible to allow the AlertFox sensors to check it, but can

PRO3 accounts support up to 10 iMacros sensors that may be run in 15-minute intervals. But sometimes you don’t want to cover more of your site’s features, but you want to have it watched more closely. That’s why we offer upgrades from 15-minute to 5-minute sensors.   Please find more details in the Wiki FAQ

Following many users’ requests, we have updated the navigation. On the one hand, we’ve made changes to allow experienced users to access the most relevant pages more quickly, while on the other hand, we’ve provided the ability to use more easily comprehensible keywords for new customers. Your feedback is very welcome!

This means that you can monitor any system variable once you make it available through HTTP/HTTPS.   Here’s how to set up a simple “Disk Space” sensor that sends notifications should the free disk space

First, let me admit that we at AlertFox also contribute(d) to the confusion as we use both terms interchangeably in the documentation. What we mean is always the same: Transaction Monitoring that runs in real browsers. However, transaction monitoring can also be done using web browser emulations! Emulations range from basic HTTP-Request and HTTP-Response commands

New Basic Website Monitoring Plan

We know that the four hour interval of the free account’s transaction service still is fine for small projects, but rather a limitation if you want basic monitoring of a more serious service. That’s why we have introduced our new “Basic” plan that goes for only US$9.99/month (or only $96.00 a year including the 20%

The free website monitoring plan with its single transaction monitoring sensor (Firefox) is perfect for monitoring a single domain/website for its core functionality. However, the accompanying three classic sensors do not really help in this situation. Only one of them is needed, and a test interval of one hour is a bit slow. So we
