Monitoring tools for webpages
Hello guys, i have a problem with a bug that i really cannot reproduce and it has some serious implications. It`s about a page that it`s not loading and it`ll display nothing. It`s very random but i have a small clue that it has to do with an idle state but again, it`s very random. I was wondering if you could recommend any webpage monitoring software / application for the browser or anything else that will help me and the devs in investigating the bug. Basically i need to find the repro steps or any log, any information about what went under. Browser console isn`t much use.
Thank you !
Tools I can recommend are..

3) NuRelic - Keep stats on server states, up time, memory, cpu, disk usage, and database hits.
Finding correlation between the 3 will help you narrow down what's happening.
Use Selenium or JMeter to repeatedly open the problematic page, both tools has support of so-called "Assertions" - checks whether response is valid. As a result you'll have timestamp, response headers and body so you'll be able to look at server logs and see what happened on that time.
tcp monitor is a simple tool that can be used too.
