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.

  2. 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.
