Overall Satisfaction with Apica Synthetic

This product is used by our department. We have multiple URLs which are deployed for different customers. It is important for our organization that all these URLs will be available 24/7. So we have created a dashboard and integrated this tool with the dashboard. Apica Synthetic monitors the URLs after every 180 sec and keeps uploading the database, and our front-end dashboard keeps showing green for that particular URL. If the URL is not accessible, then Apica Synthetic monitoring triggers an email to our first line of support and then the team gets notified. Also, if a URL is not accessible, then our dashboard becomes red.

  • Integration of tool with other tools like Jmeter for load testing can be improved and better documented

  • Load test can be done in dev and SIT environment before deploying in prod
  • Detected bugs and system behavior issues in the early phase of SDLC
We were using different monitoring tools for different requirements (e.g.,Nagios and Checkmk for infrastructure issues) and we were in need of a tool for service and API monitoring for which we were using ThousandEye. But alerts were 60-70% valid irrespective of conditions like network issues. But Apica Synthetic's alert mechanism is a perfect fit for our department. It helped us to reduce unnecessary/false alerts and a number of wrong tickets.

We are from the healthcare domain and we need our different URLs to be available 24/7, so it's important for us to get a tool that keeps on monitoring our services and APIs and automatically triggers an alert if something goes wrong. So Apica Synthetic can be very useful, as it triggers an alert, which is 98% of the time a valid alert. If URLs are not business critical, then instead of this tool, you can go for ThousandEye, which is also doing the same type of job but with less expense.
