  • 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.
  • Set the standard for synthetic checks and several APMs have copied that.
  • 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.
  • Update: they now offer federated logins
  • It filled a gap in monitoring for us, but we're looking to move on.
