Speedscale Launches Free Visibility Testing App for API Calls
December 16, 2021

Speedscale launched Speedscale CLI, a free observability tool that inspects, detects and maps API calls on local applications or containers.

The offering underscores the importance of continued and proactive API testing to quickly detect and debug defects within a shifting array of upstream and downstream interdependencies.

Speedscale addresses the quintessential struggle cloud native developers face: how to test APIs during CI/CD in a way that properly “mocks” shifting production environments in its free and commercial products.

Speedscale CLI is a desktop tool that offers the following features:

- Service Mapping, enabling developers to auto-detect and map external dependencies that could break in production, without having to send their data anywhere.

- Traffic viewer, for logging and tracing API calls into and out-of an API that’s under development. Oftentimes headers, cookies, message bodies and authentication can be difficult to understand — especially in complex protocols such as gRPC.

- Latency detection, allowing users to understand which API calls are slow and how code changes impact performance in order to focus optimization efforts.

- Load generation, coming soon, enables users to run mini load tests locally.

Speedscale’s commercial product supplements CLI’s observability capabilities with automated API-level testing, automated mock-environment creation and report generation. Replaying sanitized production traffic, and spinning up mock environments and reports, enable developers to validate code and pinpoint defects at the speed of cloud native development before the code gets deployed.
