Why use Grafana Cloud for frontend monitoring?

Monitor end user experience

  • Measure page load times, user interaction, cumulative layout shift, and more critical metrics for understanding and delivering a great user experience.
  • Slice and dice performance metrics in ways that align with your business goals — e.g., by device type, application version, or session ID — and learn more how certain users interact with your site.
