Apica
As I use this for only my area, it is very well suited to what I need it to do. Apica Synthetic monitors two different web applications in a time interval that is easily customizable for uptime and latency. These are critical indicators for a cloud-based point-of-sale system. We need solid uptime and limited latency across the enterprise.

OctoPerf
We used OctoPerf on Continuous Integrations and Continuous Deployment as part of load testing because it is very easy to load data on various frameworks and a wide range of validations can be done virtually. We can also design bespoke graphics and reports to aid in the validation of testing scenarios.

Cons
Apica
  • 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.
  • Update: they now offer federated logins
  • It filled a gap in monitoring for us, but we're looking to move on.

  • The version of the runtime needs be upgraded.
  • Additional features should be included.

We trust the results that Apica Synthetic has achieved. Real-time alerting is critical to our clients and with limited resources, we can't handle many false positives; Apica Synthetic is the only solution that provides both of those features.

We were using different monitoring tools for different requirements (e.g.,Nagios and Checkmk for infrastructure issues) and we were in need of a tool for service and API monitoring for which we were using ThousandEye. But alerts were 60-70% valid irrespective of conditions like network issues. But Apica Synthetic's alert mechanism is a perfect fit for our department. It helped us to reduce unnecessary/false alerts and a number of wrong tickets.

OctoPerf
Unravel Data is a cloud optimization tool, whereas OctoPerf can be used to easily run load test cases and scenarios, as well as develop automated cloud infrastructure to generate customized reports on the test cases run. For the greatest possible user experience, we have some additional functionality such as Jmeter and other legacy tools.

Return on Investment
Apica
  • My department is not charged for Apica Synthetic so no ROI, but from a customer service perspective, we can react to an outage and repair it faster than our customers can report the outage.
  • Our vendor's own monitoring tools are not as accurate nor as timely as ours. They rely on us telling them, from Apica Synthetic, that they have an issue.

  • There is no need to know how to code.
  • Reports made to order.
