Introducing Analytics – Visualize and Inspect API performances in real-time

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:


API Reports


API Logs


Based on the incredible feedback we received from our community, we’re proud to offer a feature rich analytics platform.  Built internally to analyze the performance of over 13,000 of APIs served in our API Marketplace, this powerful new tool provides developers with visibility into their APIs and how they function within microservices.

Everything from usage monitoring, troubleshooting, and debugging are now available in a simple to use solution:

  • Real-Time Insights – analyze API performance, consumption and usage
  • Instant Replay – replay API calls to debug issues, find bottlenecks
  • Custom Dashboards – create reports, set up filters and sort by properties.
  • API Logs – log everything happening between microservices
  • Alerts – prevent overloading and resource mismanagement


 There are a lot of network and application performance monitoring tools available for developers, but none offer the insight and visibility like Mashape Analytics.  Our platform is an API visualization and business intelligence solution that provides instant clarity on API requests, and detects bottlenecks and systems issues in real-time.  Plus utilizing the A/B testing functionality, developers can identify slow endpoints; most importantly, optimize the most important endpoints of their APIs.

Developers can also use Mashape Analytics to monitor and analyze communication between microservices hosted inside Docker containers.  As more organizations move towards a microservices architecture, developers have an urgent need for cross-organizational visibility into API behavior.  One faltering component can leave an application prone to costly latency issues.

Pricing and Availability

Mashape Analytics is available as a SaaS offering as well as an on-premise option, starting with a free plan, all the way up to an Enterprise edition.

One more thing… 

Mashape Analytics seamlessly integrates into KONG, the open-source API management platform, providing the ultimate package of control and visibility into a developer’s microservices and APIs.
