I saw a question pop up on one of our Slack groups last week that I thought would be useful to preserve somewhere for future reference and further discussion
Anyone use Postman for API monitoring? We had (formerly) Runscope but discontinued it after it had become an old, poorly maintained mess. Some devs wanted Postman so we though it might be a nice budget win to stop one and use another. Getting devs to maintain their API alerts has been a challenge.
The community asked what the original poster was hoping to accomplish because
Prometheus is a solid goto when your question is “what can do all the things”, but if you have a specific goal in mind, there may be a different recommendation.
The original poster was
looking for an API monitoring tool that will let us do some light data validation.
Q: how many endpoints you need to hit? How often?
Maybe 5-10 endpoints every few minutes.
What suggestions would you have for the original poster of this question?
