Using performance metrics

The Edge analytics API lets you monitor and manage API performance and health. The analytics API is a valuable tool that you can use to troubleshoot problems. For example, if your API goes down, analytics charts can help illustrate whether the failure was sudden or involved a slow lead-in time. If your API is slowing down, simulated transactions can help you determine how and where the bottlenecks are. In addition, analytics can help you diagnose usage problems, such as a sudden spike in traffic or the opposite, a sudden decrease in traffic.
