Apica Synthetic Monitoring API

Next-generation monitoring for developers and partners

Apica Synthetic Monitoring API is a next-generation global monitoring network providing developers and Apica partners with highly scalable, customized, and granular website performance results using real web browsers.

By using a straightforward REST API, developers can easily incorporate performance details and related information into their existing environments. Built-in Selenium support provides advanced site navigation features and plugins extend monitoring capabilities to meet individual needs.

Monitor from your customer’s perspective

With presence in over 90 cities and more than 40 countries, Apica WPM API is among the largest global performance monitoring platforms available. The network monitors from real web browsers using Selenium scripts to measure user-journey performance metrics like booking flow, login function, search and much more. You choose which locations make the most sense based on your actual end-user locations.

Extend platform features with plugins

Plugin support is built in to Apica WPM API. In addition to using our real browsers, you can monitor with plugin features like trace route, ping, port, streaming and single url to do. We will soon include a plugin for monitoring Web-Socket applications and websites. New features and monitors can be added using plugins in Apica WPM API. If you have a specific need, let us know as we’re adding new plugins all the time.

Gain open access to granular performance data

The Apica WPM REST API is open to anyone, to integrate with and measure performance using real web browsers. Combined with Selenium, users run their own Selenium scripts while gathering detailed performance data for each object loaded from classic web content to AJAX data. All performance data is made available in an automatically generated HAR package including screenshots of each page loaded.

Monitoring Locations

Worldwide Website Monitoring Agents

Apica agents are hosted on Windows/Linux servers in different locations, all over the world, from where we can conduct real browser monitoring and network tests on client websites and applications. You can also have Inside Agents hosted inside your network for running local application monitoring and/or monitor services not exposed to the internet.
