Create a stream

To monitor and gain real-time access to delivery performance, you need to create a stream for your properties.

You can associate up to three different streams with one property, or select up to 100 properties that you want a stream to collect logs for.

Choose a name for your stream that lets you easily find it in on the stream list.

Before you begin

Decide on the main content delivery properties that you want to monitor in your stream. Make sure they are active on the production network, as you can't select inactive properties to stream logs. Use Property Manager to activate your property if necessary.

How to

  1. Log in to Control Center using a User ID and Password that have been configured for access to DataStream.

  2. Go to COMMON SERVICES > DataStream.

  3. On the DataStream page, click Create stream.

    A Create DataStream wizard opens on the Configuration tab.

  4. In Type, select DataStream 2.

  5. In Name, enter a human-readable name for the stream.

  6. In Group, select the relevant account control group.

  7. In Contract ID, select the relevant identifier of your contract.

  8. In Include properties, select up to 100 properties that you want the stream to collect logs for. All properties must belong to the same product, for example, AMD or DD.

    You can see only the properties that are active on the production or staging network. If you don't see any properties, it means that no property for this product and group is active on production or staging, and you may need to create and activate a property. See Create a new property in Property Manager.


Akamaized hostnames as destinations

For HTTP-based destinations, you can create properties with Akamaized hostnames to use as destination URLs for your streams. See custom HTTPS endpoint, Datadog, Elasticsearch, Loggly, Splunk, or Sumo Logic for details.

  1. Click Next to continue to the Data Sets tab.

Log deliveries

You can only deliver logs for a single stream whose name is configured in the DataStream behavior. See Enable the DataStream behavior.

To apply the rule logic for DataStream, use Rules and Matches in Property Manager.

Next steps

Now you can specify the parameters that you want to monitor in your stream. See Choose data parameters.
