It monitors your website performance, upon your request, or you can receive alerts whenever there are any errors. Also it checks your store website response time and page load time, as well as connectivity issues. Link is here

    Great article! Another good tip is to optimize search on your Magento. I know the default search gets bogged down when you have too many items in your store. Algolia fixes that problem and has really fast results.
