Akita named a Cool Vendor in 2023 Gartner® Cool Vendors in Software Engineering: Improving Digital Resilience
Know your system
from endpoint to endpoint
By watching API traffic live and automatically inferring endpoint structure, Akita bypasses the complexity of implementing and maintaining monitoring and observability. Drop Akita into your system to gain the API knowledge you need to build better software with confidence.
Get started in as little as five minutes
We built Akita to be as plug and play as possible. For many architectures, you can simply drop in the Akita agent to watch your APIs. Our helpful docs will guide you through the entire process.Go to Docs
Know your endpoints, learn your pain points

Quickly see the impact of changes
I’m skeptical of vendors in general, because they often claim to do many things, when they do very little well. Akita’s simplicity appealed to me. I just want to know more about our APIs, how they’re performing, and what’s calling what other kind of stuff. I came in with the expectation that it was really easy to set up and use. You just turn things on, and then you don’t have to worry about it. And it’s lived up to that.
I lead product and engineering at zMatch, an early-stage electric mobility and clean energy startup. For us, quickly understanding and taking action upon possible bottlenecks is more important than perfect observability. Akita's API maps and per-endpoint monitoring have given us the visibility we need into our systems, without the work of setting up our own custom dashboards. Setting up Akita on Fargate was fast, easy, and more straightforward than alternatives we considered.
Here at Shuttlers we are into making mobility cheap and affordable, therefore ease of payment is key to the whole operation. We have been having many complaints regarding our payment flows from users but it's been difficult identifying the bottleneck until we started using Akita for monitoring and alerts. Akita analytics helped us resolve the issue in record time. Integrating Akita into our Kubernetes environment was also super easy compared to other solutions we have tried.
I had heard of eBPF, but I never thought it would be that easy to drop Akita into Kubernetes. I just redeployed with a different deployment template and Akita as a sidecar. It was really valuable to just put Akita in our cluster and look at the traffic right away.
Akita has been really easy to set up for API monitoring compared to other APM solutions. No outdated SDKs or endless pages of install instructions for one tool after another.
I was doing some API testing today in one of our test environments. I thought I had no way to verify that a newly-updated k8s resource (a Prometheus Service Monitor to be specific) was passing in basic auth credentials to our /metrics endpoint...until I looked at our traffic in Akita and was able to see the Authorization header being passed! So, pretty cool. Thanks!
Akita gives us a unique kind of observability that lets us see what our API is really doing, knowledge that our engineers can use to cut through years of legacy and rapidly make improvements.”
Akita will be very impactful for teams that need to understand software systems built by large, evolving teams. At UKG, we have observability issues common to companies who have been around for a while. I’m excited about how Akita provides drop-in observability, without needing to change code."
The Akita set-up experience has been a breeze. I used to work for Splunk, and tried a bunch of other tools, including Sumo Logic and Datadog, before. Akita is literally just plug and play.
