Building an API Monitoring Practice for Modern Apps, Containers and Microservices

Today’s leading digital organizations are leveraging APIs to deliver new services and create additional revenue streams, but for many organizations, the practice of performance and end-user experience monitoring has not kept pace with this critical development. Microservices, containers and IoT all rely on APIs to connect the various components of modern applications and deliver services to users, but if an API is returning the wrong data, performing poorly or down, your user experience can suffer, leading to a tarnished brand reputation and lost revenue.

What is API monitoring?

API issues can have far-reaching impact on any business. Without proper visibility into the traffic running through your apps and infrastructure, diagnosing and solving the problem means using up valuable time and resources. API monitoring surfaces issues directly from the internal and third-party APIs that power your apps and infrastructure. It gives you visibility into API problems so you can prevent, identify and solve them fast—before your customers notice.

Validate API Performance Using Synthetic and Real-User API Monitoring

Test API calls in real-world settings using synthetic monitoring.

Synthetic monitoring helps you quickly spot API issues by continuously monitoring API uptime, performance and data integrity. Create and scale API tests in development with the click of a button and reuse them to scan APIs and validate code in production. Test accessibility, availability and performance of API calls in real-world settings. Offer development teams a global view of API performance and track SLAs with instant notification.

Enable real-user API monitoring with application performance management.

APIs create the connections that drive digital business, but how do you help ensure your APIs are functioning properly at all times? Combining synthetic and real-user API monitoring allows you to follow the user’s transaction through the API gateway and into backend systems so you can gain visibility into API and API gateway performance, identify the backend systems supporting business services, understand the end-user experience and rapidly triage performance issues. This deep visibility allows you to quickly determine the root cause of API problems.

Securely monitor and manage API performance across the API lifecycle.

Our API monitoring software is tightly integrated with Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management), providing both outside-in and inside-out monitoring to catch API and microservice failures before your customers do. It helps you understand when third-party APIs go down and how they affect performance. It also helps you to ensure that SLAs are being met, gain real-time, in-depth, customizable visibility into critical API performance data and optimize and monitor API gateway traffic health.

Monitor APIs for uptime, performance and data integrity.

Monitor API performance.

API performance issues can negatively impact the user experience. With traditional monitoring approaches, identifying if an API is slow and why it’s slow can be difficult and time-consuming. Make use of API monitoring solutions that allow you to proactively identify performance problems and understand how it’s impacting the user experience.

Measure API uptime.

If an API is down, all services relying on that API will encounter problems. Whether it's your own internally-developed API or a third-party API, your application relies on comprehensive API monitoring solutions that provide insights and alerts into API failures. In addition, if you have an SLA agreement with a third-party API provider, continuously monitoring API uptime can ensure that the agreed upon service levels are being met.

Ensure API data integrity.

APIs are a wonderful tool for sharing information with your customers and partners, but if they aren't sending the right information, you have a problem on your hands. Ensure your APIs are returning the right data by leveraging API monitoring solutions that systematically monitors the output of your APIs.
