Statistics API reference

Swetrix provides the ability to retrieve aggregated data not only through the UI, but also programmatically using API queries.

The statistics API provides several GET endpoints. These endpoints require some query parameters and return standard HTTP responses and a JSON-encoded body. API requests without a valid API key will fail (except for the publicly available API endpoints).

Each request must be authenticated with an API key using X-Api-Key HTTP header. You can obtain an API key in your Swetrix account settings.

Rate limit for the API depends on your plan, you can find more information on the billing (or the main) page. As of 9 February 2023, the rate limits are as follows:

  • Free plan: 600 requests per hour;
  • Any paid plan: 600 requests per hour.

If you have special needs for more requests, please contact us to request more capacity.

Concepts

Time buckets

  • minute - 1 minute;
  • hour - 1 hour;
  • day - 1 day;
  • week - 1 week;
  • month - 1 month.

Periods

  • today - today (i.e. the time starting from 12:00 AM of the current day);
  • yesterday - yesterday (i.e. the time starting from 12:00 AM of the previous day);
  • 1d - last 24 hours;
  • 7d - last 7 days (i.e. current_day - 7 days);
  • 4w - last 4 weeks;
  • 3M - last 3 months;
  • 12M - last 12 months;
  • 24M - last 24 months.
  • all - all time (i.e. the time starting from the project creation date).
info

Time buckets and periods are predefined values that you can use in your API requests. The API won't accept any other values. If you want to specify a custom time range, use from and to parameters in your aggregation requests.

Filters

Filters are used to aggregate data by specific parameters. For example, you can filter the data by country, browser, operating system, etc.

'Filter' is an object with the following structure:

{
"column":"cc",
"filter":"GB",
"isExclusive":false
}
  • column - the column to filter by. Possible values are: cc, pg, lc, br, os, dv, ref, so, me, ca. You can find more detailed information about columns here.
  • filter - the value to filter by. For example, if you want to filter by country, the value should be a country code (e.g. GB for Great Britain).
  • isExclusive - whether to include or exclude the specified value. If isExclusive is true, the data will be filtered by the specified value. If isExclusive is false, the data will be filtered by all values except the specified one.

Mode

The mode parameter specifies how the data is aggregated. Possible values are:

  • periodic - data is aggregated by the specified time bucket (e.g. by day, week, etc.);
  • cumulative - data is aggregated cumulatively (e.g. the number of visits for the current day is the sum of the number of visits for all previous days and the current day).

Endpoints

GET /v1/log

This endpoint returns the aggregated traffic data for your project. This is the exact same data you see in the Traffic tab of your Dashboard, but represented as a JSON entity.

Parameters


pid (required)

The project ID.


timeBucket (required)

See time buckets.


period (required)

See periods.


from / to

Instead of specifying a fixed period, you can specify a custom time range using from and to parameters. Both parameters are optional, but if you specify from, you must also specify to. The format is YYYY-MM-DD.


timezone

The timezone to use for the time range. The default is Etc/GMT. You can use any timezone supported by day.js library.


filters

An array of filter objects.


mode

Mode used to aggregate the data. The default is periodic.


GET /v1/log/performance

This endpoint accepts the same parameters as the /log endpoint. The response is almost the same as for the /log endpoint, but with additional performance metrics.

The chart object contains performance metrics represented as an array of values for each time bucket. The x array contains the time bucket labels, and the other arrays contain the values for each metric. The index of each value corresponds to the index of the time bucket label in the x array.

The metric values are in seconds.

The metrics are:

  • dns - DNS Resolution time;
  • tls - TLS Setup time;
  • conn - Connection time;
  • response - Response time;
  • render - Browser render time;
  • domLoad - DOM Content Load time;
  • ttfb - Time to First Byte.
