Getting started with RUM on ExtraHop
This post will cover the basics of getting started with deploying Real User Monitoring, using Boomerang.js and ExtraHop; and will link to other posts for specific deployment scenarios as they come online.
First and foremost, you should head on over to the Solution Bundles Page for Real User Monitoring, read up on what RUM on ExtraHop has to offer, and download the bundle.
In addition to the Real User Monitoring bundle, you will need a copy of Boomerang itself. Boomerang is available via github, and I would recommend you read all the developer’s documentation before continuing.
Here are the deployment scenarios that I will cover:
- Direct deployment on the web tier
- Injection with nginx
- Injection with Apache
- Injection with F5 BIG-IP (using iFile)
- Non-invasive developer testing with GreaseMonkey (Firefox)/TamperMonkey (Chrome)
Cheers and good luck!
