The new version of Cedexis Radar development kit for mobile applications will be able to differ between the network connection types (3G, 4G, WiFi…), to capture any event or slice (a group of events) of interest to the mobile app developer, and bring back a more detailed mobile-specific reporting.
Version 2.0 Features
Cedexis Radar uses a unique community-based approach to measure the comparative performance of every major cloud and delivery network provider. Radar takes nearly 1 billion measurements per day from over 34,000 individual networks around the world. This provides users with an unmatched insight into the global performance and availability of the world’s largest public infrastructures. They can define exactly which clouds, CDNs, and data centers are best for their customers. The new, revamped Cedexis Radar development kit can offer:
- More insight into mobile and tablet application performance, while methodology remains the same (Image 1)
- iOS and Android libraries for including Radar in your apps
- Two types of measurements: radar remote probing, custom app-specific RUM events measurement and timing
- More control: completely in the hands of the app developer
- Network type identification (3G, 4G, WiFi): mobile performance is strongly influenced by the type of network connection used by the device
- Network type exposure: customer may choose to offer different experience based on network toy such as cellular or WiFi, the information will be exposed via the Openmix API
- Capturing app-defined custom events and slices: app developer can define and record any event and slice of interest in their app
- Reporting and alerts for app-defined custom events and slices: web charts for showing the RUM data recorded by the SDK
- More mobile-specific reporting: adding Mobile to reports (Image 2), adding Mobile Page Timing (Image 3)
Reporting is available today for all Radar remote probing measurements taken by the SDK. The SDK associates remote probing results with the existing mobile measurement types:
- Mobile HTTP Custom
- Mobile HTTP Response Time
- Mobile HTTP Throughput
- Mobile SSL Custom
- Mobile SSL Response Time
- Mobile SSL Throughput
Version 2.0 Implementation
No changes will be required from the client side to implement the Version 2.0 of Radar Mobile SDK. The features are already built into the previous version, and the remaining work will be all on the Cedexis backend. Version 1.0 of the Cedexis Radar Mobile SDK is fully functional and available for immediate download. Cedexis continues to constantly innovate on the Radar, due to the rapid growth of mobile phone and tablet adoption, and the growing need of their customers for the ability to embed Radar probing and Real User Measurements (RUM) into their mobile applications, to gain more view into the end user experience, and finally, to gain more insight into the overall performance of their mobile and tablet applications.
