API Telemetry and APM

Trace API calls and Monitor API performance, health and usage statistics in Node.js Microservices

swagger-stats traces REST API requests and responses in Node.js Microservices, and collects statistics per API Operation. swagger-stats detects API operations based on express routes. You may also provide Swagger (Open API) specification, and swagger-stats will match API requests with API Operations defined in swagger specification.

swagger-stats exposes statistics and metrics per API Operation, such as GET /myapi/:parameter, or GET /pet/{petId}

API Analytics with Elasticsearch and Kibana

swagger-stats stores details about each request/response in Elasticsearch, so you may use Kibana to perform detailed analysis of API usage over time, build visualizations and dashboards

swagger-stats Kibana Dashboard

See dashboards/elastic6 for swagger-stats Kibana visualizations and dashboards

Monitoring and Alerting with Prometheus and Grafana

swagger-stats exposes metrics in Prometheus format, so you may use Prometheus and Grafana to setup API monitoring and alerting

swagger-stats Prometheus Dashboard

See dashboards/prometheus for swagger-stats Grafana dashboards

Built-In API Telemetry

swagger-stats provides built-in Telemetry UI, so you may enable swagger-stats in your app, and start monitoring immediately, with no infrastructure requirements. Navigate to http://<your app host:port>/swagger-stats/ui

swagger-stats Built-In Monitoring

With statistics and metrics exposed by swagger-stats you may spot problematic API endpoints, see where most of errors happens, catch long-running requests, analyze details of last errors, observe trends, setup alerting.

swagger-stats provides:

  • Metrics in Prometheus format, so you may use Prometheus and Grafana to setup API monitoring and alerting
  • Storing details about each API Request/Response in Elasticsearch, so you may use Kibana to perform analysis of API usage over time, build visualizations and dashboards
  • Built-in API Telemetry UI, so you may enable swagger-stats in your app, and start monitoring right away, with no additional tools required
  • Exposing collected statistics via API, including:
  • Counts of requests and responses(total and by response class), processing time (total/avg/max), content length(total/avg/max) for requests and responses, rates for requests and errors. This is baseline set of stats.
  • Statistics by Request Method: baseline stats collected for each request method
  • Timeline: baseline stats collected for each 1 minute interval during last 60 minutes. Timeline helps you to analyze trends.
  • Errors: count of responses per each error code, top "not found" resources, top "server error" resources
  • Last errors: request and response details for the last 100 errors (last 100 error responses)
  • Longest requests: request and response details for top 100 requests that took longest time to process (time to send response)
  • Tracing: Request and Response details - method, URLs, parameters, request and response headers, addresses, start/stop times and processing duration, matched API Operation info
  • API Statistics: baseline stats and parameter stats per each API Operation. API operation detected based on express routes, and based on Swagger (Open API) specification
  • CPU and Memory Usage of Node process

How to Use

Install

npm install swagger-stats --save

Enable swagger-stats middleware in your app

var swStats = require('swagger-stats');
var apiSpec = require('swagger.json');
app.use(swStats.getMiddleware({swaggerSpec:apiSpec}));

See /examples for sample apps
