Monitoring is essential to ensuring that digital properties are performing and functional. Because digital performance monitoring works best if you are watching all key areas of your sites and applications, customers rely on Rigor to provide ongoing insight as to the performance of their sites.

This is important for companies of all sizes, however, enterprise organizations also face the added challenge of monitoring hundreds or thousands of business critical and revenue generating websites or web-based applications at scale. To effectively report on critical indicators, such as performance and uptime, enterprise organizations have to create and maintain a large amount of monitoring checks.

Rigor’s bulk upload feature helps our customers efficiently manage these tasks. Users can create or modify their real browser checks via our bulk upload functionality and they can upload, modify, or delete one to thousands of checks at a time via a CSV or via an API.

In this blog, we will explore further how you can use our new bulk upload feature to monitor at scale and ensure you are delivering the best possible digital experience.

Monitor at Scale

When considering monitoring solutions, it’s not just about what they can do, it’s whether they can do it at the scale you need.

Rigor now enables enterprises to scale their monitoring coverage by making it simple to create checks in bulk via a CSV, an API, or bulk change and delete.

This significantly improves the ease at which enterprise customers can get up and running with Rigor. Consider L2,  a customer that relies on data from Rigor to measure and benchmark the performance of digital brands. They use Rigor to run checks across thousands of URLs a day, so updating, changing, or revamping these URLs was a laborious, cumbersome task.

Enter the bulk upload feature.

In designing this feature, we wanted to make it as simple as possible. So, we included instant validation of uploaded data. This means that we tell you if there are any problems with the data you uploaded, so you can make changes as needed. Simply download a CSV of just the entries you need to fix or proceed with importing the good entries and fix the ones with errors later.

This feature is not limited to single page Real Browser Checks, but also includes functionality for HTTP and Uptime checks as well.

Bulk Check Creation via API

Bulk check creation via the UI may not always be the best option for your team, so you can also create checks through our API. If your team is rolling out a new website, for example, you may want to test against staging or production data across all of the URLs. This new feature makes it easy for your technical teams or users to create new checks as they launch the new website through integrating monitoring into their routine activities and existing workflow.

But, what happens after your team has successfully moved traffic over to the new features and sites? At that point you may want to mute, pause, or delete all of the checks used to monitor the old website. This can also be done via the bulk edit feature.

Since sometimes people can accidentally click the wrong thing, we added confirmation boxes to make sure you don’t accidentally delete data by mistake.

Rigor’s enterprise customers, such as L2, find great value in Rigor’s monitoring and optimization product because it helps foster collaboration, create visibility, and automate prioritizing performance. With the addition of our robust bulk create, edit, and delete features, Rigor is even better suited to help business monitor at scale.
