Apica Synthetic

All http checks with Apica Synthetic [make] it the natural choice. When it comes to other types of checks, Apica Synthetic has a solution but there are [also] some other tools you can use instead.

It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

  • It provides contextual information so you can reproduce any issue and validate a fix on test environments.
  • It allows us to identify misbehaving application code or business objects that cause application slowdowns and crashes.

Cons

Apica Synthetic

  • It's very clunky. Infrastructure is large and very difficult to upgrade.
  • SaaS and On-premise versions are different. There is an LDAP integration but users can only be assigned to one group (i.e. department). If you are in 2 departments, you need 2 separate logins.
  • It filled a gap in monitoring for us, but we're looking to move on.

  • Email alerts configuration is not user-friendly
  • Tuning recommendations that are provided by germain CRT are not always right.

We cannot have any complaints regarding support provided for our deployments by germain CRT. We had some worries that with such big ecosystems of plugins issues are imminent, but it really only takes a few minutes for you to add a new plugin and germain CRT support team is happy to do it for you.

germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.
