Measure O365 page load times




we want to measure the page load time of different O365 web-pages. For example we want to know what time it takes to load a specific sharepoint page.

We tried to accomplish this via a powershell skript, but as O365 does not allow HTTP Authentication, all we get is the redirect to the login page (login.microsoftonline.com).

I´ve found different articles how to authenticate to a O365 powershell. But what I need is to authenticate to the webservice. Can anyone help with that? Maybe somewhere a custom PRTG sensor exists for that purpose but I wasn´t able to find one.

Best regards, theNETguy

Hello theNetguy,

thank you for the KB-Post. I'm afraid we ourselves don't have any sensors/scripts to do O365 monitoring, but we've got an entry in the Scriptworld:

Did you try this already?

best regards.

Yes I already came across that sensor/script and it pretty cool to monitor service status.

But what we want to do is to monitor the response time of specific pages in order to see how fast those pages are delivered to the end user. Usually that is a very easy task with the http sensors of PRTG. The only problem is the authentication towards O365 because we cannot use HTTP Auth.

thanks for your reply.

best regards

Sorry, I meant more to use the script there and build from its connection part to achieve your goal.
