Ideas for Apica Synthetic Monitoring

Got an idea? Share it here and we'll have a look at it.

Audio alerts on SLA breach & check state change

This is feedback from our management and I think it is really useful to be honest. When the state of a check changes or when an SLA is breached we would like to hear an audio alert. We feel this is present in other monitoring solutions and it would draw the user's attention towards the result the platform is generating. I understand at least for the change in check status that you would naturally think of using alerting for this but when Apica is running on an Ops screen, or when senior management are running it it's overblown to setup alerting for them when all they want is some audible accompaniment to these events.

    We have reviewed it and collected feedback from customers to see how they look at it. Right now we don't have it as a planned feature but we'll revisit it later this year again.

    To handle this case today we would recommend to poll the API to fetch results and trigger Alerts on this OR make use of PagerDuty for it.
