Now you can use the new version of the DataStream 2 API to capture log data and deliver them to a destination of your choice at low latency.

This API allows you to create and manage stream configurations. You can choose from available data set fields to monitor traffic and collect detailed data on your Akamai properties at the edge. See Usage examples for the steps you need to configure DataStream 2.

This API offers a programmatic alternative to the features of DataStream 2 available in Akamai Control Center. It limits the scope of the returned data by the user's account, its permissions, and access to business objects.

We have redesigned the API for improved experience, including new features such as Patching streams. You can continue using the DataStream 2 API v1.

DataStream 2 is optimized for high volume raw data delivery. We recommend using raw log data for basic traffic analysis and monitoring CDN health. In the event of issues related to third-party destinations, such as latency or connection problems, data will be lost after three failed retries to connect. You should take these limitations into account before using data served on your stream for audit, compliance and billing purposes. See Features and use cases in the DataStream 2 user guide.

We have designed DataStream 2 for improved and optimized low latency log delivery compared to DataStream 1. If you want to migrate your streams from DataStream 1 to DataStream 2 using the API, see Stream migration.
