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.

Request Metrics

Request Metrics is great for small web development teams that want to make fast web applications. It was quick for us to get started and we could use the reports right away without having to read through documentation. If you just need to get some performance metrics, Request Metrics is perfect.It would not be so good for a larger team or a complex backend application as it is pretty limited in what it can measure.

Pros

Apica Synthetic

  • Synthetic alerts triggered

Request Metrics

  • Performance charts are really simple and easy for us to understand what is happening
  • It was easy to get started and doesn't need administration or training
  • It's affordable for our team
  • It's fast

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.

Request Metrics

  • I wish that it could also do uptime checking of the site
  • There is not enough detail to drill into individual users

Alternatives Considered

Apica Synthetic

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

We also consider Speedcurve and Calibre for monitoring. Speedcurve was really nice, but the reports were slow. We had to wait a lot to get information. It was also out of our budget and would require extra justification to use it.Calibre was also nice, but the numbers were based on synthetic rather than real user performance. We felt that this wasn't as helpful for us.

  • Got visibility into availability other than relying on just canary pages.

Request Metrics

  • The launch of our project dashboard was much smoother and more successful because we could fix problems earlier
  • It fit without our existing operations budget
