You need a delivery configuration ("property") set up to manage delivery of your content via the Akamai edge network.
Based on your Akamai delivery product, set up your property to optimize it.
Adaptive Media Delivery (AMD). Have a look at your property settings to view your behaviors. The default rule in an AMD property is pre-populated with several behaviors you can use to optimize delivery. Set it up to deliver live streaming video (low-latency), on-demand streaming (redundant), or both. Also, see AMD Content Characteristics recommendations, below.
Download Delivery. Review the rules and behaviors you have set for your Download Delivery property. Of note is the Content Characteristics behavior. Use it define specifics for your content to help optimize its delivery through Cloud Wrapper.
Ion Beta. A new Ion property comes predefined with several recommended rules and behaviors. You should ensure that HTTP/3, mPulse, Adaptive Acceleration, and some form of Caching are enabled. Have a look at the Ion user documentation for more information.
Object Delivery. Review the rules and behaviors you have set for your Object Delivery property. Of note is the Content Characteristics behavior. Use it define specifics for your content to help optimize its delivery through Cloud Wrapper.
These features aren't supported for use with Cloud Wrapper. You'll need to remove or disable them from your property:
With AMD, Download Delivery, and Object Delivery, Tiered Distribution is automatically enabled in the background of the Origin Characteristics behavior in the Default Rule. To disable it, add the Tiered Distribution behavior to the same rule and set it to Off to override this.
Use these settings to get better performance with Cloud Wrapper when streaming on-demand video via an AMD property:
- Catalog size. Set this to Large or Extra Large.
- Popularity Distribution. Set this to Long Tail.
- Enable <media format>. Click Yes for each media format you want to enable for streaming.
- Segment Duration. Each media format has a default segment size which is pre-defined. Unless you know your segments are a different size, leave this at the default.
- Origin Object Size. If your origin objects are over 10 MB you should set this to 10-100 MB or Greater than 100MB.
Partial object caching doesn't directly impact disk usage, but it can increase offload at edge, which will create less demand from Cloud Wrapper.
We recommend that you verify the size of your delivery objects on your origin, and select the appropriate size to ensure that partial object caching is enabled or disabled, as necessary.
