GET /API/Tests/Periods

Basic Intro

Using the HTTP header GET you will be able to get a list of each period of data. A period of data is two time stamps in which status has remained the same - such as a period of downtime or uptime. If the end timestamp is the current date then that period is on going. Time stamps are returned in GMT format.


REQUIRED POST/GET - TestID. This should be a int of a test ID attached to the logged in account.

OPTIONAL POST/GET - Additional - Also return information about the downtime. NOTE: This will slow down the query considerably.

Example Request
curl -H "API: [APIKey]" -H "Username: [Username]" -X GET

Example Output

The output is returned as a json array

    Start_Unix: "1361721706",   // When it started (Unix timestamp)
    End_Unix: "0",              // When it ended (Unix timestamp)
    Start: "2013-02-24 16:01:46", // When it started (Your timezone)
    End: "0000-00-00 00:00:00", // When it ended, or current time if still active (Your timezone)
    Type: "Status" // What this period describes.
