You signed up to the API analytics tool (Galileo
) and you’re wow-ing at the possibilities, but exactly how much can this tool help you in your day to day job?
I am going to analyze what business questions can be answered from an API perspective as a manager, developer, user or as a mixture of each.
Then I will dig into the metrics that will be available to us and formulate relevant questions.
Finally I will create a dashboard report using the required data.
How do I start?
Analytics are not simply “pretty graphs” to show your coworkers…
Starting with the name, Mashape Analytics is now Galileo
. Named after the Italian “father of modern science”, Galileo Galilei, Mashape Galileo is the father of modern API Analytics.
To keep you busy we’ve added tons of improvements:
Every step is now personalized using your current environment and account tokens, making it a breeze to start sending data. Speaking of data, instead of cluttering your environments with sample data, we now have a dedicated test environment you can pre-populate with realistic data points.
The Environment Dropdown was lacking something major, insight. Replacing the generic description…
, is the only biz intelligence platform focused on Analytics and Visualization of API traffic. It has over 100 features focused in solving API problems fast. One of those is called “Compare Requests”.
By selecting two rows you can easily view a line by line diff between multiple requests response status codes, headers and bodies to easily to spot changes and potential errors.
This feature is handy for debugging purposes while building and scaling your APIs.…
At Mashape, we’ve been building a new product, APIAnalytics
, to let anyone easily track and monitor anything related to HTTP in their applications. To be successful, it needs to be extremely easy to plug any application into it. There’s many ways to achieve that with as little friction as possible, such as agents and libraries for every popular language, but for now let’s talk about HTTP proxies.
Some of our requirements for HARchiver
, our official lightweight proxy for APIAnalytics are:

We’re going to be…
We’re excited to bring real-time analytics to microservices and APIs with the release of Mashape Analytics:
the first purpose-built, open analytics platform designed specifically for API-centric architectures.
Developers, DevOps and Product Managers can now easily understand which APIs are used most frequently, from what endpoints and by which paying customers. With this vital insight they’re better prepared to manage their applications. The Platform is divided in two main sections:
Based on the incredible feedback we received from our community, we’re proud to offer a feature rich analytics platform. Built internally to analyze…
We’re happy to announce a reduced revenue share percentage rate. Going forward monetized APIs will only be charged a 20% revenue share. With ❤.
As always, Mashape will continue to provide free support, quick distribution, analytics, auto generated code snippets, issues and reporting system, status, alerts, testing tools, collaboration and permission add-ons, and many more features.
Looking forward to our continued relationship to build together the API economy!

Q: What are some examples of crucial data points that developers should track when they want to monitor the performance of their APIs?
Uptime – obviously. A lot of people have a telecommunications ‘mindset’ of “5 nines” or 99.999% uptime… whereas the reality of most web APIs is 99% or worse. Or to put that in another perspective –…
