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.

SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor (WPM)

We've found WPM to be a fit for every web application that we wanted to monitor. If you have a web app that you'd like monitoring/alerting for then WPM may work for you. So far our only struggles have been when after logging in the app launches a new tab.

SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor (WPM)

  • Testing web applications
  • Ability to log in to secure sections of websites in order to test user authentication
  • Provides a detailed history of steps taken and provides print screens of each step. If an error occurs you can see the web page to better diagnose issues.

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.

  • The recorder is clunky and must be run on a local machine.
  • It does not support frames.

Solarwinds support is top-notch, and while we rarely have to call them, they are always very helpful when we do.

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.

At the time we purchased WPM we were not aware of alternatives and therefore did not compare them.
