Performance reports provide insights into the rate at which data is delivered and the volume and percentage of download requests.
Use the Filters panel to customize your report. You can set these options:
If you've already set filters for another report's tab in the Adaptive Media Delivery > 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 Akamai network. Someone in your organization assigns a friendly name to a CP code when it's created—either via a tool in Akamai Control Center or an API, or with the help of your Akamai 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.
Delivery Format. If you want to filter the results to a specific media format, select it here. The Others selection here applies to all other media formats not listed for selection.
IP Version. Select the applicable IP version for traffic—IPV4, IPV6, or All for both.
Delivery Type. Select from On Demand, Live, or All for both. (All is the default.)
Media Encryption. Determine if you want to include streams that used Media Encryption in your filter. (All is the default.)
HTTP Version. Select the desired HTTP version used in the transfer of content.
Traffic Type. Select the traffic security level—Non-Secure for HTTP traffic, Premium Secure Traffic for HTTPS secure traffic that uses an Enhanced TLS Edge certificate, Secure Traffic (Shared Certificate) for HTTPS secure traffic that uses the Akamai shared certificate, or Standard Secure Traffic for HTTPS secure traffic that uses a Standard TLS Edge certificate.
Ultra Low Latency. Enable this if you've incorporated low latency streaming in your AMD property, via the Enable ULL streaming option in the Content Characteristics behavior. All properly configured HLS and DASH-format live streams that have used low latency will be included in the report.
Chunked Transfer. This applies if you're incorporating low latency streaming for DASH via Media Services Live in your AMD property. This specific scenario takes advantage of chunked transfer encoding (CTE), where data is sent to the player in a series of "chunks." The player doesn't have to wait until the complete segment is available. Enable this to include DASH streams that were served in chunks via CTE.
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:
|Throughput , Offload Hits , and Offload Volume||These offer overall performance values for these three metrics.|
|Throughput||Information on the rate of successful delivery of media from the server. This is calculated as the total bytes delivered divided by the total time taken to serve the request. Reported in Mbps.
Note: If you've added Prefetching to your AMD property, it takes advantage of caching on the Akamai network. As a result, you may notice improved performance in this widget. You can view prefetching data via specific widgets in the The Realtime tab (AMD), the The Traffic tab (AMD), and the The Availability tab (AMD).
|Origin Offload||Percentage of bytes delivered from the Edge Servers as compared to those delivered from your origin.
Note: The same benefit for Prefetching discussed in the "Note" above, applies to data in this widget, too.
|Throughput by CP Code||Information on bandwidth usage by CP code, categorized by Edge, Midgress, Origin, and the sum of Edge and Midgress.
|Offload by CP Code||For a CP code, thi is the percentage of hits and bytes delivered from the Edge servers as compared to those from the origin server, including NetStorage or "Your" (custom) origins. (Edge Hits - Ingress Hits) / Edge Hits * 100.
|Throughput by Country||Information on the rate of successful delivery of media from the server for selected country. Information is categorized by Edge Volume and Edge Throughput|
|Offload by File Extension||For each file extension, the percentage of hits and bytes delivered, from the Edge servers as compared to those from the origin server, including NetStorage and "Your origin" (custom) origins. Information is categorized by Edge Volume, Offload Volume, and Offload Hits.|
|Throughput by ASN||Information on the rate of successful delivery of media from the server for selected Autonomous System Name (ASN). Information is categorized by Edge Volume and Edge Throughput.|
|Offload by Content Type||For each content type, the percentage of hits and bytes delivered, from the Edge servers as compared to those from the origin server, including NetStorage and "Your origin" (custom) origins. Information is categorized by Edge Volume, Offload Volume, and Offload Hits.|
Click to further refine the specific data for all widgets in the report. The same options discussed above are available for use.
Click the table icon () or the chart icon () to switch between these views in a widget.
If a widget offers a Chart view that displays a line graph, there is a limit on the number of data points that can be plotted. This limit affects the aggregation of data revealed, based on the range of time you specify. See Widget data aggregation and Chart view for more information.
Click the magnifying glass icon () to customize the kind of data that is shown in the widget. See Analyze data shown in a report for more information.
Click the download icon () in a widget to download a comma-separated value (.csv) data file of the report output.
