REST API monitoring as a service for DevOps. Monitor with code not with a web GUI tool.

Monitor All of Your APIs Get notified when something goes wrong

Why Monitor? ● You need to know if your application is working correctly ● Set expectations on outages ● Understand what needs to be fixed when something goes wrong

The Problem: Monitoring is Tedious ● Having full monitoring coverage of your production APIs: internal and external ● Monitors are only created when there is a failure in production ● No easy workflow to move testing/monitoring from development to production

The Solution: ● Use open source API testing frameworks for monitoring ● Monitor every single API endpoint and variations of it ○ GET/POST/PUT ○ Positive and negative monitors ● Deploy new monitoring via GitHub or from a continuous integration system

Produces Key Metrics ● Endpoint Up/Down times ● Response times ● Structure of response is accurate ● Multi global region metric of the above

First Open Source Framework Support ● Dead simple to use ● Light weight ● Simple syntax ● Dedicated to REST API testing

Create Monitors with Code Not Web GUIs

Deploying new tests is simple ● On commit to the master branch new tests are automatically deployed ● No other interaction is necessary

Dashboard Reporting Failure

Notification Options


Auth and Data Security ● OpenStack Keystone project to manage all tokens and keys ○ Everything goes through this layer ● Data is retained per ○ Tenant ○ Group ○ User

Monitor Code Execution ● All monitors code runs in its own container ( ● Code is completely separated from customers
