Monitor Microsoft Skype for Business or Lync

Agent 9.1.x can now monitor the quality of VOIP audio and video calls on Microsoft Skype for Business or Lync, by collecting a broad set of call data.

Call quality in Aternity centers around Microsoft’s MOS measurement (Mean Opinion Score), which assesses the jitter, background noise and other factors to determine the call quality for each participant in a call, on a scale from 0 to 5.

Participants in a call have their own MOS scores and statuses

Manage Several Web Applications from a Single Site

You can now monitor the health and usage of several web applications within a single site by separating them into distinct managed web applications with their URL path. Add the pathname of each web application to the base URL, to automatically monitor the usage and health of all pages under that pathname.

For example, on a single hotel booking site, you can monitor the performance of searching for a hotel (www.mysite.com/findhotel) separately from the payment system to book a room (www.mysite.com/booknow).
