We use Apica Synthetic for many of our customers and it is very easy to set up and manage. We use [Apica Synthetic] for monitoring of both public and internal websites with simple URL checks and more advanced scenario checks. It is easy to see what has gone wrong with a check and [also] compare checks.

We also use it to send out monthly SLA reports to the customers.
  • Modern and easy GUI.
  • Very simple to set up and manage.
  • Excellent support from Apica.
  • APICA can help with complex checks and [is] very flexible.
  • Some improvement with user management could be done.
  • Having more than 2 weeks of detailed check information.
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.

We had a gap in our monitoring along the lines of synthetic-user monitoring. We needed consistent availability monitoring of our web applications.
  • It is an easy-to-use product and you can build out checks with Firefox Selenium IDE (no longer supported). A good measure of availability.
  • 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.
It's a good starter solution, but it was difficult to maintain. Often, the vendor wanted to use us as a guinea pig for upgrades and then writing the upgrade document based on what they found/broke/etc with our environment. I prefer late adopter.
