Firstly, what is Real-time website traffic monitoring? Also referred to as real-time network monitoring, it is a feature that allows you to check website traffic coming towards and leaving your site, all in real time. You can monitor your website’s performance, the devices connected to the network, bandwidth usage, bounce rates, Click-Through-Rates (CTR), and many more features easily according to business needs. Website analytics show user behavior (user actions) and the web server health status along with detailed reports to gain insights. With real-time website traffic monitoring enabled, the reverse proxy server will check your website traffic and send timely notifications about the website and network traffic updates, the site performance, regular change updates, and the server health status updates from the website traffic checker to the user.
Website traffic monitoring shows the web traffic information and insights on traffic data to show a detailed analysis of user interactions, traffic peaks, how much bandwidth an application uses up, and if any threats were encountered with the help of the website traffic checker. Along with this, the reverse proxy server will also let you monitor the network traffic in real-time to check for blind spots in the security, server monitoring, network traffic management and analysis, sending regular server health status reports to keep the organization/company up to date with the web server’s performance, which is protected by the reverse proxy server.
Real-time traffic monitoring is particularly important for small businesses who are looking for new marketing strategies to grow their online business by improving landing click-through rates, reducing bounce rates, correct keyword research, web page, and network traffic reports, web traffic analysis for traffic overview, and understanding user behavior.
Real-time website traffic monitoring shares all detailed website traffic (and also network traffic analyzer) information with the site owner to check website traffic.
You can see which geographic locations the website traffic comes from and at what time as well. This provides a better analysis of your website visitors.
You can see which bugs and errors came up in the network's blind spots, during user interactions in order to fix them, and curb them from repeating.
You can check which ports are available (free or open), in use or are being congested with incomplete processes. This is easily done with a network traffic analyzer.
Server admin will be sent regular server status and threat notifications to keep him/her up to date on server health. This comes under server monitoring and maintenance to monitor traffic.
Check website traffic flowing from the main site to the subsites of an organization and gain user behavior insights from that.
User activity monitoring and log maintenance for the users to look at and gain insights into user behavior with activity monitoring and network traffic analyzer.
Check for bot traffic with server monitoring. Bad Bot Traffic is non-human, automated traffic, which increases traffic to a site by huge numbers which can lead to the server crashing if not mitigated at the earliest.
Consistent ping tests allow you to test the network throughput and the quality of the network bandwidth to check for blind spot areas and improvements in bandwidth utilization.
Suppose there's a user, Sarah. Sarah has set up a real-time Web Traffic Monitoring feature on her reverse proxy to check WordPress website traffic. With this enabled, the reverse proxy stores the user log of the IP address of every request made, and then Sarah can view the geographic location from where the user traffic is coming from, and toward her website along with the time and time zone.
This WordPress real-time website traffic monitoring feature will check website traffic and send out regular threat notifications about threats that Sarah’s web servers were prevented from. Sarah will get a notification regarding the threat status, the server health (server monitoring and maintenance), and if Sarah’s site received too many hits which caused the server to be overloaded hence indicating the need for a Load Balancer. With the help of web analytics, Sarah can gain insights about her website’s target audience and work around it to improve her website features accordingly by checking the website traffic in real-time.
Suppose an employee of Sarah, say, James, logs in. Sarah can now monitor James' actions and get notifications of activities that James performs while he is logged in. Sarah can monitor multiple users like James all at once by enabling traffic monitoring and analytics.
At the same time, Sarah can implement IP Restrictions and set up Bot Traffic mitigation as well to secure her website from unauthorized access requests and unwanted traffic. This can be achieved with the help of miniOrange reverse proxy server.
