The service-level agreement (SLA) API provides programmatic access to SLA test configurations and the resulting reports.

SLA tests measure certain availability and performance metrics. The results of these tests can help you check whether ​Akamai​ is achieving the performance gains and platform availability set forth in the SLA included with your purchase contract.

The SLA API allows developers programmatic access to SLA test configuration and SLA report data. This includes adding and deleting test configurations and retrieving availability and performance test reports. You can use this information to determine if a potential outage occurred or if performance had been below the target.
