About the Ebook

Monitoring and managing API traffic can be a complicated undertaking. Most companies today need to deal with securing API traffic from outside their organizational boundaries as well as optimizing traffic between services running behind the company firewall. In this ebook, Mike Amundsen introduces developers and network administrators to the basic concepts and challenges of monitoring and managing API traffic.

In this ebook, you’ll learn approaches for observing and controlling external traffic (known as the North/South model) and for optimizing internal traffic (the East/West model). You’ll also examine the business value of good API traffic practice that connects your business goals and internal progress measurements to useful traffic monitoring, reporting, and analysis.
