Monitoring a specific web client response (zooms, etc)

We have an application with only the middle tiers instrumented (they have web servers, but we haven't instrumented them as yet).

If we instrument the web servers and turn on UEM, can we monitor specific web
client response which does not involve interaction with any server? Examples are zooming in an
image, closing an image etc. These response times can only be seen using browser F12
dev UI tool.

Or would we need a browser agent for that?

Hi Kayan,

you can use the JavaScript agent ADK to instrument specific actions, which are not detected out-of-the-box:

I would also assume that some of these "User Interactions" will be captured with our support for your JavaScipt Frameworks such as AngularJS or jquery. If you talk about "zooming" in I am sure you use a JavaScript library that executes action on the browser. I think we may just capture some of these actions out-of-the-box. If not - I like what Clemens said about the ADK
