Major Feature Changes

Introducing Schedules Moving forward, we are replacing our system of deploying API calls with schedules. Here's how it works. Previously, you'd need to pick locations and clouds from which to run tests, and a test frequency. But this caused a bit of confusion, both over the daily count of actual calls AND the frequency with which we would hit the API. So, we've changed the process. Now, you pick the frequency of your end point calls – anything from once per second to once per day – and the regions or clouds you are looking for. We will handle [...]

Issues in some public Insight CASC scores January 2018

A quick note, in some of the latest Insights reports we have a number of APIs showing a CASC Score of 0. Unfortunately, a number of APIs were added exactly as the monthly totals were run and this led to the generation of a number of these scores, they do not reflect on the APIs. We will be manually removing the zero scores impacted on this occasion. Sorry if this has led to any confusion.

Improved Call Data Visualizations and Reporting

Welcome to 2017 and with it, the first of a bunch of new reporting features. They're designed to tell you more about what's actually impacting your API and SaaS performance. First out of the gate – we've improved visualizations and comparison data of the steps involved in an API call. We've been breaking down the individual steps of the DNS lookup, handshake, processing and download. But we've now visualized that data along with gauges. It shows how the numbers stack up to your historical averages. SLOW reporting We also added functionality into the 'SLOW' alerts to let you know roughly [...]
