Rigor widget. The Rigor widget has these options:

  • Average Response Time
  • Error Count
  • Maximum Response Time
  • Minimum Response Time
  • Percentage Downtime
  • Percentage Uptime
  • Response Time
  • Standard Deviation
  • Run Count

Dynatrace widget. The Dynatrace widget includes the metrics that you set up in
the Dynatrace service.



Synthetic checks typically only run once an hour or so. This means that last 5 Minutes or the last 30 minutes may not show any data.

  • Data Science. The Data Science widget includes Data Science (DS) notebooks
    and charts that react to date time and domain filters. The treemaps
    react to date time, domain and country filters. You can also set
    mPulse-specific notebooks with charts and chart version numbers in DS
    for the mPulse widget. Note that more than one widget cannot be created
    from the same notebook. There are a set of standard notebooks available,
    and custom notebooks can be used in mPulse. For assistance with DS
    notebooks, contact your ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč Professional Services
