The URLs tab (DD)

The URLs report provides details on the number of requests for a stream at the ​Akamai​ edge, midgress, and origin. Data is gathered on a daily basis.

Start by setting up a filter

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 Download 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.

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 "Hits by URL" widget in the URLs tab:


Hits by Manifest URLs The widget displays information on the total number of requests for the manifest URL. These hits are categorized by the stream ID, and number of hits at Edge, Midgress, and Origin.
Volume by Manifest URLs The widget displays information on the bandwidth usage for the manifest URL, categorized by stream ID, and volume at Edge, Midgress, and Origin.
Edge Responses by Manifest URLs For selected manifest URLs, the widget displays information on the total number of hits on Edge servers, categorized by their response codes. See Reporting metrics (AMD) for information on codes.
