What does this dashboard tell me?

The Traffic Composition dashboard measures the relative contribution of your top APIs, apps, developers, and products to your overall API program.

Use the report to detect business problems such as lower traffic trends or diminishing contribution from key apps and developers. Based on this data, you can decide what corrective action to take. You can also get early notification of new entities that contribute to API traffic, and take actions to respond — for example, you can determine which new developers are highly contributing and include them in nurturing programs.

The Traffic Composition dashboard (classic)

What does this dashboard measure?

Metric Description
Overall Traffic Trends The number of messages for each entity of the selected type over time — for example, the number of messages for each API over time.
Relative Traffic Contribution The relative amount of traffic contributed by each entity of the selected type over time — for example, the relative contribution of each app over time.
Traffic Trend Click on a segment of a Relative Traffic Contribution chart to view the traffic trend for the corresponding entity. For example, click on a segment that displays the relative traffic contribution for a specific developer to view the traffic trend for that developer.

Displaying a selected dimension entity

What does this dashboard measure?

Metric Description
Traffic Composition The number of messages for each entity of the selected dimension over time —

for example, the number of messages for each app by month.

Select a specific dimension entity to view its traffic relative to the traffic of all other dimension entities — for example, the traffic of a specific app in relation to the traffic of all other apps.

Traffic By Dimension

The number of messages for each entity of the selected dimension over time — for example, the number of messages for each app over time.

Traffic Percentage

Replaces the Traffic By Dimension graph when you select a specific dimension entity.

The percentage of all traffic generated by the selected dimension entity by month.

Top 10 Monthly Composition

The relative amount of traffic contributed by the top 10 performing entities of the selected dimension over time — for example, the relative contribution of each app over three months.

Traffic By Month

Replaces the Top 10 Monthly Composition graph when you select a specific dimension entity.

The amount of traffic generated by a selected dimension entity by month.

What else do I need to know about these dashboards?

You may see the name of a dimension entity as na. For example, see the entity named na for the API proxies dimension below:

This may or may not be an issue.

When an API proxies dimension entity is named na:

This is because the call reached the Apigee routers, but was malformed and never reached a proxy and the message processor returned a 404 status code with a classification error. This traffic is grouped under an API proxy dimension entity named na. This tells you that there are some callers making malformed calls.

When a Product dimension entity is named na:

This is because not all of your API proxies and developer apps are using products. Traffic without an associated product is grouped under a product dimension entity named na.

When a Developer dimension entity is named na: This is because not all of your traffic is being generated by registered developers. Traffic that is not associated with a registered developer is grouped under a Developer dimension entity named na. This traffic may originate with an internal-use or public API.
When a Developer Apps dimension entity is named na: This is because not all of your traffic is being generated by registered developer apps. Traffic that is not associated with a registered developer app is grouped under a Developer App dimension entity named na. This traffic may originate with an internal-use or public API.

Classic version

This is a very interactive dashboard. The controls in this chart work a little differently than others that are described in Using the analytics dashboards; however it's an intuitive dashboard to use. Move your mouse over the charts and entity names to highlight specific information.

Beta version

Use the Dimension control to select the data you want to analyze. For example, use the first drop-down to select the dimension type for which you want to display data. If you want to further narrow the data view, use the second drop-down to select a specific dimension entity. Select an entity name along the right margin to hide/display the entity’s data from a chart.

This dashboard also uses standard controls, like the date aggregation selector, hovering over graphs for more context, and so on. To learn more, see Using the analytics dashboards.
