Monitor API Availability and Performance

If your website or web application relies on an API, availability is a crucial part of ensuring a consistent user experience.

SOAP API Monitoring

Dotcom-Monitor agents can replicate one or more end-client requests and monitor web services for availability and proper content. Verify that data can be exchanged with a web application by monitoring a SOAP web service for availability and for proper responses.

Setup SOAP monitoring tasks by manually configuring the SOAP envelope or retrieve parameters using WSDL (Web Service Definition Language). Check for performance and accuracy of DNS query resolutions from worldwide locations.

REST API task

REST API Monitoring

Proactively monitor RESTful web service endpoints for availability, functionality, and performance. Verify your API calls return the proper text, JSON, or XML.

REST API monitoring supports multiple types of HTTP/S requests, cookies, form submissions, custom headers, password-secured sites, and timeout thresholds.

OAuth 2.0-based APIs

Many of the today’s applications utilize OAuth 2.0, an industry-standard protocol for authorization.

Your web service API may require OAuth 2.0 authentication to allow other services, such as client applications, to be granted access rights to resources on your service over HTTP/S.

Quickly configure a multi-task monitoring device and continuously monitor availability and performance of APIs that are secured with the OAuth protocol.

Postman collection

Postman Collections

If you have a collection of integration tests for internal API testing with Postman, but also need to set up tests from outside the local network, you can upload a Postman collection from the JSON file, or using the shared public link, to the Dotcom-Monitor platform.

Create automated, continuous monitoring tests to alert you when errors occur, specify monitoring locations, monitoring scheduler, filters, set up reporting on monitoring results, and more.

SSL / Certificate Check

Secure Socket Layer SSL Certificate Monitoring is a standard aspect of web monitoring. The following options are available:

Authority: verifies whether a certificate chain contains a root certificate that is trusted, or not trusted.
Common Name (CN): validates that an address you navigate to matches the address certificate the address was signed to.
Date: verifies the certificate expiration date.
Revocation: validates that the certificate’s chain of trust doesn’t contain a revoked certificate.
Usage: verifies a certificate chain for the improper use of an intermediate certificate.
Expiration Reminder in Days: a reminder that notifies (as an error) about certificate expiration.
Client Certificate: client certificate name.

Ensure Your Business-Critical APIs are Consistently Performing

Check the performance of every API request and set alert thresholds for minimum and maximum response times.

Real-time API Performance Alerts

Stay on top of issues with immediate notifications, such as SMS text message, email, or phone.

When an error is detected, the API monitoring agent checks the error against the device’s filter. If the device does not filter out the error, the device goes into an alert state. Users have the option to assign multiple alert groups to receive alerts, along with their own customized alert schedule, device alert throttling, and escalation options.
