Mashape Updates #14 – Status snapshot display for APIs

We have just rolled out another cool feature in Mashape – the Status snapshot display of Mashape APIs

Status snapshot display of Mashape APIs

This “quick glance” information provides both app developers and API providers with useful information such as whether the API is currently online or offline, average uptime, latency, and the same data spread out for a week on a graph.  The Status display is a huge timesaver (and will complement your good old debug and log outputs) in scenarios such as:

  1. Planning – e.g. “What average timeout value should I set in my application to consume this API?”
  2. Historical Analysis – e.g. “My Party Night API seems to take longer to respond during Fridays. Hmm.”

To access the Status of a Mashape API, go to its Profile page and click the “Status” link on the left navigation pane.
