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.

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

SignalFX is well suited for environments where cost is a concern and the ability to decide what metrics are important to control that cost. Organizations with bandwidth to onboard a new system are also at an advantage. Organizations where cost is not a concern, may find better solutions elsewhere.

  • SignalFX handles historical metric aggregation exceptionally well, providing a multifaceted approach to event detection based on anomalies.
  • SignalFX's cost is incredibly flexible with their pricing model of DPM (data-point per minute) vs the traditional "per host" model that most monitoring SaaS use.
  • SignalFX support is responsive and knowledgeable, very eager to help solve your immediate problems.
  • SignalFX integrations is vast and constantly growing, making adoption easy even when multiple different open-source technologies are used in your stack.

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.

  • SignalFX has room for improvement in UX. With the amount of options available, SignalFX use can be somewhat complicated. They seem to prefer a less-opinionated implementation, which can have its pros and cons. Other solutions like Datadog can be easier to implement, though at the cost of their opinion on implementation and price.

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.

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

SignalFX is a strong competitor in the monitoring SaaS space and provide the basic necessities for production grade monitoring and alerting. Other solutions may offer easier adoption and other helpful features, but will have trouble competing for cost for organizations that have bandwidth to tweak metric ingress.
