Real User Monitoring (Classic)

Real User Monitoring (RUM) provides performance monitoring of web pages based on data collected from real end users. With RUM, we can gather data about an individual page request, and send that data back for processing.

If you have this behavior configured in your Ion property, update it to use mPulse, instead. Talk to your ​Akamai​ account team if you need help.

How it works

RUM injects JavaScript into HTML pages served to end-user clients. The JavaScript monitors page-load performance and it reports on various data, such as browser type and geographic location. RUM monitors webpages that contain an HTML head section and use the text/html content type. A content type is a header that describes the file type that follows. The browser uses this information to render the content properly.
