There are quite a few things that we use Synthetic for:
- We use it for error checking and geo-protection checking because we are very regulated since we are in gaming. Basically, if it doesn't see X text on a page, the geo-protection is not firing properly for blocked areas. This checks all our maximized databases.
- We use it for timings in making sure the web page is optimal so we can tell if someone accidentally seeks a large image up through the CMS site.
- For the load test side, it is pretty much obvious what it does. It is load testing outside through journeys what we have through Synthetic. It checks the API back to the login services and so forth.
That's a great overview of what we use it for. We use probably around 75 checks on Synthetic across our three verticals that we do per casino.
