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.

  • Try to end application downtime.
  • Optimize and improve troubleshooting.
  • Detect and identify existing problems.

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.

  • Cost - Riverbed is really proud of their products, and the price shows.
  • More "point and click" repair opportunities.
  • Integration with Cisco DNA, tell which devices could have issues based upon the IOS version, etc.

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.

There is a wide variety of APM solutions out there for companies to pick from. Riverbed AppInternals sits near the top of the stack certainly. We already deploy steelhead units across the estate with client licenses, that aided us in our decision to select AppInternals. We found the costs of AppDynamics and New Relic ( which we had trials for) both costly against AppInternals.

Return on Investment

Apica Synthetic

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

Riverbed SteelCentral AppInternals

  • This product has really wonderful features and one of the most valuable ones is the transaction searches into TTW.
  • This will show you the operations that occurred under conditions that the user specifies, giving you the opportunity to drill down on the things that are more important and affecting system performance.
  • Besides that, the capability of analyzing each individual transaction captured to a very low-level detail (method call/line of code). This ability empowers the testing teams to provide more visibility to developers on how they can improve.
