DataStream 2 lets you select and omit the data fields you want to monitor in your stream. You can choose from parameters related to cache data, request and response details, geolocation and network performance data.

DataStream 2 supports only raw data logs at this time. See the list of available data set parameters.

How to

  1. In the Data Sets tab, select the parameters that you want to monitor in a log lines.


Data set templates

If you want to create more streams with the same data sets, you can click Save template after selecting the parameters you want to log. Next, enter the Template name, and Save the set of fields you can use later when creating a stream.

When creating a new stream, the list of saved templates will appear above the list of data set fields. Just click the appropriate template to load the data set fields from the template. Remember that available data set fields may differ between products, you can edit the fields before saving, and you can save up to 5 templates per contract.

  1. Optionally, you can enable the Log midgress traffic option to collect traffic data from within the ​Akamai​ platform, such as between two edge servers. You also need to go to Property Manager, and enable the Collect midgress traffic option in the DataStream behavior for your property to log midgress traffic. If logging midgress traffic is not enabled on your contract, contact the ​Akamai​ support team.
