What are the problems related to monitoring, troubleshooting and updating APIs?
Implementing efficient and effective API monitoring is essential if you want to provide reliable, consistently performant APIs. That means you need to put tools and metrics in place to ensure you spot anything out of the ordinary. Unresponsive APIs, APIs behaving unusually, traffic spikes and error response codes relating to your APIs will all need swift attention.
To achieve this, you need full visibility of API health metrics, plus some kind of automation to alert you to any issues requiring troubleshooting.
You’ll also need a user-friendly approach to versioning. Otherwise, updating your APIs in response to bugs and events your monitoring has caught (or for any other reason) risks introducing breaking changes.
That’s a lot to ask of any API monitoring tool. Thankfully, Tyk has your back…

Implement health checks for routine API monitoring and use native integrations with Slack and PagerDuty for notifications if something unusual occurs. Expose events to notify you about your APIs and write webhooks in response to them, automating actions like sending email, SMS, Slack or PagerDuty notifications.
Use circuit breakers to protect your services, handle failures gracefully, prevent cascading failures and maintain overall system resilience.
Update your APIs using Tyk Sync or Tyk Operator (for Kubernetes) to change configurations in production.
Leverage the power of OpenTelemetry easily with Tyk Gateway and customise trace detail levels to meet your monitoring requirements.
