Application Programming Interfaces, commonly known as APIs become more important with the growth of cloud. They are the foundation that enables companies to actively participate in the digital economy and being able to monitor your APIs is crucial for undisrupted business processes and services.
While safely and reliably exposing the functionality of different back-end systems, APIs allow enterprises to accelerate innovation, provide shared services and data, and adapt to market and customer needs. However, in cases where the APIs you provide, or use have performance issues this affects the sites and services that rely on them. APIs can go offline for various reasons and these outages can cause incalculable damage to your business. With our SAP and Apigee API management monitoring apps for Splunk, you can avoid the damage of any API related performance issues which could potentially result in customer frustration or loss, or even lost business if they come without warning.
Both monitoring apps come with prebuilt dashboards where you can view real-time total API traffic, successful and failed API calls (and the analysis of failed ones), top used APIs and applications, best and worst performing APIs, and top developers. With these apps, you can now identify and solve issues before they can affect your business or your customers’ experiences with your business. The dashboards also allow you to see if your APIs are being used internally or externally and how those APIs relate with the rest of your organisation -in real-time. Additionally, you can create and see patterns between APIs and make decisions based on these patterns.
The reason why we built these monitoring apps for Splunk is to enrich and extend the monitoring capabilities of Apigee and SAP API management with dashboards. While Apigee and SAP API management platforms come with monitoring functionalities, they are not specialised in monitoring like Splunk is. With these apps for Splunk, you can now have complete monitoring power over your APIs. You can also mix&match dashboards that come with our other monitoring apps for Splunk and centralise all monitoring -regardless of APIs or systems integrations.
