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.

AlertSite

AlertSite works exceptionally well if you need to analyze how your digital assets perform over time and, based on provided reports, determine the potential slow down root cause to make data-driven decisions instantly. In case you are used to analyzing by visually representing your availability and performance, AlertSite might not be the perfect solution for you.

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.

What we have noticed so far is the fact that AlertSite customer support team is trying to build relationships and go the extra mile to make sure we can overcome any occurring issues. They are quick to respond and provide sufficient guidance about how to implement product features efficiently, integrate new tools, and fix product issues.

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.

AlertSite

We moved all of our services to Site24x7 after several years with AlertSite. We looked at Uptrends and Pingdom to name a few whilst evaluating options. Pingdom lacks functionality and Uptrends we found to have quite a steep learning curve. AlertSites platform and in particular the Deja-Click recorder is a standout tool against the other platforms. Sadly the upscaling costs of multi-location transactions can quickly add up.

AlertSite
