Monitor your cloud dependencies.
What we like
Monitors not just service status pages, but also synthetic tests against APIs to check things like creating an S3 bucket, upload objects, access them, etc. Supports cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure) and SaaS e.g. GitHub, Cloudflare, Google Drive. Degraded (average latency has increased) or down (not responding) alerts. Optional agent to test from within your own account.
What we don't like
The Metrist agent can auto discover API calls using eBPF on the OS level. This allows unknown APIs to be monitored, but has some limitations on the traffic it can inspect e.g. outgoing TLS/SSL calls, but only on Linux if they use OpenSSL (dynamically linked).
