ACE - Historic reports

These reports let you analyze historical data relating to the delivery of your cloud hosted content, over a range of time you specify.

What parameters are available with these reports?

The ACE Realtime reports dashboards uses specific parameters in the form of metrics and dimensions.

How do I access these reports in ‚ÄčAkamai Control Center‚Äč?

  1. Select the appropriate ‚ÄčAkamai Control Center‚Äč Account. Use the top-right pull-down in the header to select the account.

  2. Open the application. Go to ‚ėį > MEDIA > Media delivery reports, and then select Akamai Cloud Embed > Realtime** from the menu.

  3. Pick a "tab" to review desired reports data.

The Traffic tab (ACE - Historical)

These reports provide historical information on the overall number of hits and volume transferred, as well as traffic per individual subcustomer ID, domain and geographic "server price zone."

Start by setting up a filter

Use the Filters panel to customize your report. You can set these options:

ūüďė

If you've already set filters for another report's tab in the Akamai Cloud Embed - Historical reports, those filters are automatically applied when you access this tab. If this tab doesn't support one or more of those filters, you'll receive a message.

  • Date Range (Required)*. Click the date range field and determine a range of time you want for report data. See Set the date/time range for a report for more information. You can also set a Time and Timezone for this report. However, certain time zones may not work with this report because data is collected on an hourly basis using the UTC time zone.

  • CP Code (Required)*. A content provider (CP) code is a unique identifier we assign to you for reporting, billing, and monitoring traffic served over the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč network. Someone in your organization assigns a friendly name to a CP code when it's created‚ÄĒeither via a tool in ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč Control Center or an API, or with the help of your ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč account representative. Click each desired CP code to include in the filter or, if you know the name or number of the desired CP code, type it in the Filter field to refine the results. You can also click All to include every CP code.

  • IP Version. Select the applicable IP version for traffic‚ÄĒIPV4, IPV6, or All for both.

  • Delivery Option. Select the traffic security level‚ÄĒEnhanced Secure Traffic for HTTPS secure traffic that uses an Enhanced TLS Edge certificate, Non-Secure for HTTP traffic, Standard Secure Traffic for HTTPS secure traffic that uses a Standard TLS Edge certificate, Standard Secure Traffic (Shared Certificate) for HTTPS secure traffic that uses the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč shared certificate, or All Traffic.

The widgets

Each individual content panel in the reporting tabs is referred to as a "widget." Several widgets make up your report in this tab. Here's an example of the "Traffic by Sub Customer Id" widget in the Traffic tab" widget in the Traffic tab:

IMAGE_STUB

  • Edge Hits. All hits to Edge servers from end users.

  • Midgress Hits. Includes hits from Edge servers to other Edge servers, to obtain cached content. This includes prefetched content and inter-media format fragments.

  • Origin Hits. All hits from Edge server to an origin to obtain content. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.

Volume This displays the total bandwidth usage at all the servers, over the date range specified. This is categorized as volume at the Edge, Midgress, Origin, and Offload volume. (This widget also displays the overall totals for these three values.)
  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the Edge to the end user. This also included overhead bytes.

  • Midgress Volume. The total object bytes transferred from one Edge server to another Edge server, to obtain cached content. This includes prefetched content and inter-media format fragments.

  • Origin Volume. The total number of bytes, including overhead bytes, transferred from the origin to the Edge server. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.

Traffic by Sub Customer Id This displays information on end user access for content, on a per-ACE subcustomer ID basis. (End users request access to content via a subcustomer policy, and each policy is assigned a unique subcustomer ID.)
  • Edge. All hits to Edge servers from end users attempting to access content via an ACE subcustomer policy.

  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the Edge to end users accessing content via an ACE subcustomer policy. This also includes overhead bytes.

  • Origin Hits. All hits from Edge servers to an origin to obtain content. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.

  • Origin Volume. The total number of bytes, including overhead bytes, transferred from the origin to the Edge server. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.

Traffic by Sub Customer Domain This displays information on end user access for content, on a per-ACE subcustomer domain basis. (End users request access to content via a subcustomer domain that's been associated with the subcustomer policy that determines how to distribute content.)
  • Edge. All hits to Edge servers from end users attempting to access content via that subcustomer domain.

  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the Edge to end users accessing content via that subcustomer domain. This also includes overhead bytes.

Traffic by Server Price Zone ACE traffic is delivered and monetized via servers located in multiple geographic regions.
  • Edge. All hits to Edge servers from end users attempting to access content from that server price zone location.

  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the Edge to end users accessing content from that server price zone location. This also includes overhead bytes.

You can modify your filters

The widgets

Each individual content panel in the reporting tabs is referred to as a "widget." Several widgets make up your report in this tab. Here's an example of the "Origin Offload" widget in the Performance tab.

IMAGE_STUB

WidgetDescription
Throughput This displays information on the rate of successful delivery of content from the various servers‚ÄĒyour origin or edge servers. This is calculated as the total bytes delivered divided by the total time taken to serve the request, and is reported in Mbps.
  • Edge Throughput : This is the rate of successful delivery of content from edge servers to requesting clients.
Origin Offload This widget displays the bytes delivered from edge servers versus content delivered from your origin. (That is, the amount of bytes delivered from the edge cache, vs. that content being delivered directly from your origin.) This widget displays specific data on an hourly basis for each date in the date range specified.
Origin Offload by Sub Customer Id This widget displays the same origin offload data (as above), but based on end user access requests for a specific subcustomer ID (End users request access to content via a subcustomer policy, and each policy is assigned a unique subcustomer ID.)
