Athina is an evaluation framework and production monitoring platform for your LLM-powered app. Athina is designed to enhance the performance and reliability of AI applications through real-time monitoring, granular analytics, and plug-and-play evaluations.

Getting Started

Use Athina to log requests across all LLM Providers (OpenAI, Azure, Anthropic, Cohere, Replicate, PaLM)

liteLLM provides callbacks, making it easy for you to log data depending on the status of your responses.

Using Callbacks

First, sign up to get an API_KEY on the Athina dashboard.

Use just 1 line of code, to instantly log your responses across all providers with Athina:

litellm.success_callback = ["athina"]

Complete code

from litellm import completion

## set env variables
os.environ["ATHINA_API_KEY"] = "your-athina-api-key"
os.environ["OPENAI_API_KEY"]= ""

# set callback
litellm.success_callback = ["athina"]

#openai call
response = completion(
messages=[{"role": "user", "content": "Hi 👋 - i'm openai"}]

Additional information in metadata

You can send some additional information to Athina by using the metadata field in completion. This can be useful for sending metadata about the request, such as the customer_id, prompt_slug, or any other information you want to track.

#openai call with additional metadata
response = completion(
{"role": "user", "content": "Hi 👋 - i'm openai"}
"environment": "staging",
"prompt_slug": "my_prompt_slug/v1"

Following are the allowed fields in metadata, their types, and their descriptions:

  • environment: Optional[str] - Environment your app is running in (ex: production, staging, etc). This is useful for segmenting inference calls by environment.
  • prompt_slug: Optional[str] - Identifier for the prompt used for inference. This is useful for segmenting inference calls by prompt.
  • customer_id: Optional[str] - This is your customer ID. This is useful for segmenting inference calls by customer.
  • customer_user_id: Optional[str] - This is the end user ID. This is useful for segmenting inference calls by the end user.
  • session_id: Optional[str] - is the session or conversation ID. This is used for grouping different inferences into a conversation or chain. [Read more].(
  • external_reference_id: Optional[str] - This is useful if you want to associate your own internal identifier with the inference logged to Athina.
  • context: Optional[Union[dict, str]] - This is the context used as information for the prompt. For RAG applications, this is the "retrieved" data. You may log context as a string or as an object (dictionary).
  • expected_response: Optional[str] - This is the reference response to compare against for evaluation purposes. This is useful for segmenting inference calls by expected response.
  • user_query: Optional[str] - This is the user's query. For conversational applications, this is the user's last message.
