How APImetrics innovates in API testing
APImetrics offers the industry’s first and only intelligent, analytics-driven API performance testing solution built specifically for the enterprise. By interfacing with all current and legacy API protocols, APImetrics helps IT managers, developers and vendors know if their APIs are performing as designed. Monitoring is supported by analytics and fully customizable anomaly alerts to help deliver the actionable intelligence needed by the enterprise to ensure performance meets service level agreements and customer expectations.
Existing API performance testing tools provide little more than a status report on whether an API is up or down. APImetrics software is able to model complex API scenarios by testing APIs end-to-end across a range of applications and cloud services, including popular hosting platforms such Google Apps Engine, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
API performance testing features & benefits
There are geographical advantages to using APImetrics as well. Tests and monitoring can be run specifically from the US, Europe, Asia or South America, with custom reports from a variety of data centers. APImetrics can be run from outside or inside firewalls and supports a variety of API protocols including SOAP and other legacy protocols still in use in many organizations’ back-end software. Together, these features make it possible to get a realistic view of API performance from a genuine user perspective for a real-world API health check.
APImetrics’ solution is unique in its space because it allows tests to run on a repeating basis even if the API calls require security tokens. Predefined libraries of tests and authentication settings remove the difficulty of building tests, while integrated OAuth libraries eliminate the need for manual scheduling.
Tests can be set to repeat automatically and left running for long periods of time to establish a baseline and quickly identify performance that deviates from the norm. This gives a more robust picture of overall API health that can’t be determined from one-off tests.
APImetrics’ API performance testing offers an intuitive, customizable dashboard for easy reporting to non-experts. It is cloud-based and scalable to make it easy for enterprises to take control of their APIs.
Armed with the knowledge about the performance of their APIs, stakeholders can significantly enhance their ability to optimize the speed and accessibility of those APIs.
