The API Monitoring Recent view displays treemaps of API traffic by proxy.

To access the Recent view, follow the steps in Accessing API Monitoring and select Recent.

Select recent view.

The figure below shows the UI with Recent selected.

API Monitoring recent view

The Recent view displays three treemaps of API traffic by proxy. In each treemap, the traffic for each proxy is displayed as a rectangle, whose size is proportional to the amount of traffic for the proxy. If you ignore the colors of the rectangles, all three graphs display the same underlying pattern of rectangles.

The colors of the rectangle indicate the relative sizes of the following three variables:

  • Number of incidents triggered by alerts
  • Error rate
  • Maximum latency 50th percentile

For example, the second graph, Size by Traffic and Color by Error rate, displays the relative sizes of the error rate for each proxy: the darker the color of the rectangle, the greater the error rate. As an illustration, if you hover your mouse over the rectangle for proxy43 near the right side of the graph, you see the following:

Error rate for proxy18.

The text in the rectangle, proxy43:760:0.48, displays the following data for proxy43:

  • The total traffic: 760
  • The error rate: 0.48

Since the error rate for proxy43 is the largest among all proxies, its rectangle has the darkest shade of blue in the graph.

By default, the Recent view displays three tables:

  • Size by Traffic and Color by Incidents
  • Size by Traffic and Color by Error Rate
  • Size by Traffic and Color by Incidents

As in the Timeline view, you can select any combination of tables from the Graphs menu to display. All other graph options are the same as in the Timeline view.

Taking a closer look at the distribution of cell data

As in the Investigate view, you can get a more granular view of the data for an individual table cell by clicking the cell. This displays the distributions of the cell data by several different attributes in the right-hand panel. See Viewing the distribution of cell data for more information.
