Work with GTM reports

GTM reports retrieve information from live data feeds throughout the extensive global network of servers to provide reporting about web site traffic served by ​Akamai​. You can create these reports in ​Akamai Control Center​.

Alternatively, you can monitor traffic programmatically using the Global Traffic Management Reporting API. This API provides reports on GTM's real time statistics. Each call allows you to view traffic, liveness, direct demand, load feedback, and latency on datacenters and properties.

GTM Reports

This table describes the Global Traffic Management reports that are available on ​Control Center​.

GTMProvides traffic data for a selected domain name and its properties and datacenters for up to 90 days.

The report dashboard provides DNS requests for all properties and DNS requests per property with a summary table for both. It also provides DNS requests by datacenter with a summary table.
GTM - AvailabilityTracks availability, uptime, for the GTM service to provide a useful indication when additional testing for availability might be appropriate. The report displays availability during the set time frame as a percentage of time that the GTM authoritative name servers answer queries.

In the report dashboard, "Availability by Time" updates every five minutes. When viewing the report over longer time frames, availability summarizes across wider intervals (for example, every hour). Additionaly, the dashboard service summary provides percent average availabilty, percent maximum availability, and percent minimum availability.
GTM - DataCenterProvides traffic data for a domain and data center and its properties.

The report dashboard provides data requests per property and a table that provides a summary of requests, for up to 90 days.
GTM - PropertyProvides traffic data, liveness, demand, and load feedback by traffic target for the selected domain for up to 10 days.

This report provides a heat map of sources of traffic by geographic location. The map shows the top regions of traffic and top requests by country. Additionally, the report dashboard provides a table of average requests per second, minimum requests per second, and maximum requests per second.
GTM - Error PropertyProvides an error count for a domain and property and a list of error events. See this report in ​Akamai Control Center​ under Reports, Other.

The dashboard provides server errors per hour and a server errors summary. These are liveness test results.
