Control room

A control room presents real-time data about a live event. It provides a customizable set of widgets based on the services associated with the event.

In the Control room view, you can:

  • Add or remove widgets
  • View alerts for the event
  • Export the report to selected email addresses

Widgets associated with services in a live event display estimated values through aggregates. These aggregates include traffic data for the event, all objects within a service, and individual objects. The list of available widgets depend on the services associated with the event. You can add these widgets to your services:

CP codes

Event traffic summary.
A summary of the origin and edge traffic data for all CP codes associated with the event. It includes these metrics:

  • The peak numbers of origin and edge requests per second
  • The total numbers of origin and edge requests
  • The peak numbers of origin and edge bandwidth
  • The total volumes of origin and edge traffic

CP code origin status.
The origin responses by category for all or selected CP codes associated with the event. You can view the number of hits for each response category. The categories are:

  • 000 Client-abort
  • 1xx Informational
  • 2xx Successful
  • 3xx Redirection
  • 4xx Client errors
  • 5xx Server errors

CP code bandwidth.
The origin and edge bandwidth for all or selected CP codes associated with the event.

CP codes edge status.
The edge responses by category for all or selected CP codes associated with the event. You can view the number of hits for each response category. The categories are:

  • 000 Client-abort
  • 1xx Informational
  • 2xx Successful
  • 3xx Redirection
  • 4xx Client errors
  • 5xx Server errors

CP code requests.
The number of origin and edge requests per second for all or selected CP codes associated with the event.

Universal Live streams

Event traffic summary.
A summary of the origin and edge traffic data for all Universal Live streams associated with the event. It includes these metrics:

  • The peak numbers of HD Flash 1.0, Adobe HDS, and Apple HLS streams edge concurrent viewers.

  • The peak numbers of HD Flash 1.0, Adobe HDS, and Apple HLS streams edge requests per second.

  • The total numbers of HD Flash 1.0, Adobe HDS, and Apple HLS streams edge requests.

  • The peak bandwidth of HD Flash 1.0, Adobe HDS, and Apple HLS streams edge requests.

  • The total volumes of HD Flash 1.0, Adobe HDS, and Apple HLS streams edge traffic.

    Universal Live edge viewers.
    The number of concurrent viewers for all or selected Universal live streams associated with the event.

Universal Live edge requests.
The number of edge requests per second for all or selected Universal live streams associated with the event.

Universal Live edge bandwidth.
The bandwidth for all or selected Universal live streams associated with the event.

MTR Tool.
Information about the route, number of hops, and time that Internet traffic packets take between the edge server and a remote host or destination. The results can help you diagnose encoder entry point connectivity issues.

Stream Status.
The status of the streams based on the ingest server data. It includes the stream's name, location (primary or backup), and current bit rates.

Adobe Flash Live Streams

Event traffic summary.
A summary of the origin and edge traffic data for all Adobe Flash Live streams associated with the event. It provides these metrics:

  • The peak number of concurrent viewers
  • The peak edge bandwidth
  • The total volume of edge traffic
  • The peak number of edge requests per second
  • The total number of edge requests

Adobe Flash Live viewers.
The numbers of concurrent viewers for all or selected Adobe Flash Live streams associated with the event.

Adobe Flash Live edge requests.
The number of edge requests per second for all or selected Adobe Flash Live streams associated with the event.

Adobe Flash Live edge bandwidth.
The edge bandwidth for all or selected Adobe Flash Live streams associated with the event.

MTR Tool.
Information about the route, number of hops, and time that Internet traffic packets take between the edge server and a remote host or destination. The results can help you diagnose encoder entry point connectivity issues.

Stream Status.
The status of the streams based on the ingest server data. It includes the stream's name, location (primary or backup), and current bit rates.

IPA/SXL

Event traffic summary.
A summary of traffic data for all IPA/SXL slots. It provides these metrics:

  • The peak bandwidth per second used for requests
  • The total bandwidth used for requests
  • The peak number of concurrent IPA/SXL connections

IPA/SXL connections.
The number of concurrent connections for all or selected IPA/SXL slots.

IPA/SXL bandwidth.
The rates of traffic from the client to the origin (incoming) and to the client from the origin (outgoing) for all or selected IPA/SXL slots. It's calculated for origins that are served by associated Sureroute IP (SRIP) endpoints, converted into bits per second at five-minute intervals, based on connectivity from Akamai's distributed network to edge nodes on your network.

Report packs

For Quality of Service (QoS) report packs, these widgets are available:

Rebuffering time.
The percentage of visits that experienced rebuffering over time. It's calculated as the ratio of number of sessions rebuffering at least once to the total number of active sessions expressed as a percentage.

Successful attempts.
The number of successful attempts at viewing the media and its availability over time.

Audience size.
The total audience for the media at a particular point of time. This value is instantaneous, not aggregate.

Start-up time.
The average start-up time per session.

Hovering over a widget displays data for a specific five-minute segment.

Unavailability of any of these widgets indicates that you don't have that service.
