API monitoring is a quick approach to identify under-performing application programming interfaces. They can cause applications, websites, and services to fail, impacting the end-user experience. With the API monitoring capability in SolarWinds® Pingdom®, you can monitor and evaluate API response for speed, content availability, and communication.
APIs are vital tools for businesses, allowing uninterrupted interactions among multiple software intermediaries. Plenty of sites rely on third-party services or APIs to ensure flawless communication between applications or programs. API downtime can lead to a website’s unavailability and a significant impact on the business’s bottom line. API monitoring helps you gain instant visibility into the performance, availability, and functionality of programming interfaces. Pingdom enables organizations to analyze response time and availability of API endpoints to ensure better API performance.
Monitoring both internal and external APIs is crucial. Internal APIs create a secure platform for data sharing among teams, whereas external APIs allow secure connection and data sharing outside an organization, providing an engaging end-user experience. Pingdom helps development teams continuously monitor internal and external APIs with its synthetic and real user monitoring capabilities. It provides visibility and enhanced troubleshooting to ensure the business’s website and client services are running smoothly.
API downtime can result in a pool of unserved requests impacting the business’s overall service. With outages occurring any moment, it is crucial to ensure you are the first one to know. Pingdom sends immediate notifications when an API is down and provides relevant information to the teams to help them resolve the issues quickly and confidently.
Pingdom uptime monitoring is designed to ensure your API is working smoothly and allowing programs to communicate efficiently. It enables teams to monitor API availability from specific global regions, including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Development teams can use Pingdom root-cause analysis to understand an issue and reduce time and effort fixing it. With Pingdom public status pages, organizations can share uptime status with colleagues and clients.
With Pingdom uptime monitoring, organizations can start API monitoring typically in under three minutes and diagnose an issue within seconds. Its customizable alerting feature immediately notifies you via email, SMS, or push notification. Teams can choose to get alerted on their preferred communication channel such as Slack, PagerDuty, HipChat, and more. Additionally, you can customize the frequency of alerts based on critical services or the issue’s severity.
