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.

Google Cloud Operations Suite (formerly Stackdriver)

Easy to set up in all environments. With this tool, the company is now able to measure both well-functioning data and data that needs immediate intervention. This early detection facilitates decisions about actions to correct the disorder and improve indexes. Stackdriver is now essential for the company's security and monitoring team and we plan to expand to other branches.

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.

  • For searching and filtering the logs the system is slow sometimes.
  • An agent needs to be installed in each VM to monitor specific metrics.
  • The pricing model is confusing.

It is also a great problem detection tool, and this is extremely important for General Motors.
The user can count on the ease of flexible panels and advanced visualization tools that help to identify problems. Among the most common, we can mention:
- containment of hosts;
- cloud provider limitation;
- hardware wear.
And also Stackdriver Integration with other Google Cloud data tools such as BigQuery, Cloud Pub/Sub, Cloud Storage and Cloud Database.

Apica Synthetic is more flexible [when] making custom checks. The support from Apica can help you with nearly every check you have to do.
