API Monitoring is a monitoring Application Programming, most ordinarily in production, to distinguish visibility into performance, availability, and functional correctness.
API Monitoring tools are intended to analyze the performance of the applications and improve poorly performing APIs. They provide extents of how long a routine takes to execute, how often it's called, where it's called from, and the total time spent executing that transaction.
As API traffic increases, without access to comprehensive data analysis and appropriate alerting, the ability to meet customer service-level contracts may be put at risk.
Apigee API Monitoring works with Apigee Edge Cloud to deliver real-time contextual insights into API performance, helps quickly diagnose issues, and facilitates remedial actions for business continuity. Enable users to watch APIs, quickly investigate, and act on API issues.
By means of a continuous method of collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data, Edge API Analytics supports your API team to improve their APIs and app developers improve their apps.
Edge API Analytics gathers and analyzes a wide spectrum of knowledge that flows across API proxies such as:
API product name
Developer email address
You can collect custom analytics data by using the Statistics Collector policy. Once the custom data is extracted, you'll use the analytics UI or API to look at the info. You can also want to collect custom analytics data specific to your API proxies, apps, products, or developers. For example, you would possibly want to collect analytics data from query parameters, request headers, request and response bodies, or variables that you simply define in your APIs.
There are two time intervals that regulate at what time and for how long you visually see your data analytics:
Data delay - After a call is created in an API proxy, it can take up to 10 minutes for the info to be accessible..
Data preservation - The length of time that analytics data is retained by Edge differs by the plan. Depending on your plan, analytics data could also be available for the past 30, 60, 90, or three hundred and sixty-five days.
Edge API Analytics has data visualization tools built into the sting UI. These tools contain predefined analytics dashboards and custom reports that show data in graphs and charts and allows you to drill down to see data grouped in different dimensions. In addition, you'll download analytics data by using the sting management API. Once the analytics is downloaded, you can import the data into the data visualization tool or analytics system.
The Edge UI offers a group of predefined dashboards that your visualization tools or analytics system.
Analytics dashboards The Edge UI provides a group of predefined dashboards that you simply can use to look at analytics data. This dashboard includes charts for:
In general, after Apigee Edge has been installed, you'll perform the subsequent monitoring tasks to trace the performance of an Apigee Edge for private Cloud installation.
