Determine your requirements

You should know how much cache space your property needs before you create a configuration. Cloud Wrapper provides a utility to examine the cache footprint of your property and compares it against your cache-misses.

Use this information to help choose the amount of capacity for your Cloud Wrapper configuration. Your account team will add the agreed upon capacity to your capacity inventory.

  • This report estimates the Cloud Wrapper capacity you need for your initial configuration.
  • Your account team creates these reports at your request.


Your property must have at least 37 days of activity to perform an analysis. This ensures enough traffic data is available to provide a clear estimate of performance. You can use an existing property with 37 days of traffic, or create a new property and wait 37 days to gather the necessary data.

View a Footprint Analysis

  1. Open the application. Go to > ORIGIN SERVICES > Cloud Wrapper.
  2. Select the Footprint Analysis entity.

Use the Footprint Analysis tool

You can use the Footprint Analysis tool to perform these tasks:

  • View existing analysis configurations and their status.
  • Access the analysis report.
  • Use the Actions menu to Create a Cloud Wrapper Config from a Succeeded analysis configuration.

The analysis report uses your selected Cloud Wrapper configuration to display estimated traffic patterns. Your report shows offload performance of Origin Hits, Origin Volume, and the estimated Cloud Wrapper Capacity you need to achieve those results.


These reports aren't for properties already using Cloud Wrapper and don't reflect active Cloud Wrapper performance. View the dashboard for a footprint analysis of an active configuration.

Estimate your capacity

Use these reports to determine if the Cloud Wrapper configuration will meet your offload needs. You can have analysis reports for different configurations to help model your Cloud Wrapper capacity. Adjust the Chosen Cache Space (GB) slider to see an estimate of how your configuration would perform with a Lower Footprint versus a Higher Footprint. Compare your Current and Estimated values to view the +/- Change.

The accuracy of your report

Your past traffic patterns are used to generate these estimates and aren’t an exact predictor of future performance. Use these reports to gain performance insight using different CW configurations. Changes to your workflow or traffic during the polling period will impact the accuracy of the analysis report.


Content with a TTL less than 1 day may provide inconsistent reporting curves.

About the available widgets

Each individual content panel in the reporting tabs is referred to as a "widget." Several widgets make up this tab, including:

Total Cloud Wrapper CapacityThe reported estimates are based on your Current capacity levels and your Chosen Cache Space (GB).
Origin HitsThe number of hits to your origin server.
Origin VolumeThe number of bytes delivered from your origin server.
Origin Offload (Hits)Percentage of hits from the Edge Servers as compared to the hits from your origin server.
This is calculated as:
(Edge Hits - Ingress Hits) / Edge Hits * 100.
Origin Offload (Volume)Percentage of bytes delivered from the Edge Servers as compared to the bytes delivered from your origin server.
This is calculated as:
(Edge Volume - Ingress Volume) / Edge Volume * 100.

Use Cloud Wrapper with multiple locations

You can use Cloud Wrapper with multiple locations by creating rule trees in Property Manager. Do this by adding behavior conditions to your property configuration. Cloud Wrapper supports these Rules and Match conditions:
