Media Services Live 4 - Realtime

First mile reports provide improved reporting of ingest quality and availability for HTTP-based ingest (HLS/HDS/DASH) as well as RTMP-based ingest. The reports provide summary details as well as additional information for accelerated streams.

Use these tabs to view and manage report data:

The report's dashboard uses the parameters in the form of metrics and dimensions, for both Realtime and Historical dashboards.

Metrics

Metric NameDescription
2xx Hits Number of requests made to the entry point posting objects that returned response codes 200 to 299 (Successful)
3xx Hits Number of requests made to the entry point posting objects that returned response codes 300 to 399 (Redirection)
4xx Hits Number of requests made to the entry point posting objects that returned response codes 400 to 499 (Client Error)
5xx Hits Number of requests made to the entry point posting objects that returned response codes 500 to 599 (Server Error)
Active Streams Streams active during a selected time period
Average Bitrate Average amount of data transferred in a unit of time, calculated in terms of bits per second. It is expressed in kbps, Mbps, or Gbps.

Note, that values reported do not include manifest requests.
Average Latency Indicates the delay between Encoder and Entry Point when sending a unit of media payload.
Average Packet Loss Measures the quality of connection between encoder and entry point.
Provides connection level ratio of data packets (bytes) lost to the data packets (bytes) sent by the encoder.
Average Path Time Average time taken from source to destination.
Error Rate Rate of errors occurring in a unit of time, expressed as a percentage.
Hits Total number of requests made to the entry point posting objects.

Dimensions

Dimension nameDescription
CP Code Identifier assigned to a contract associated with a particular stream.
Chunked Transfer Encoding You can filter on streams that include the Transfer-encoding: chunked HTTP Header

Note that it's available for streams published with Chunked Transfer Encoding enabled.
Encoder IP IP address of encoder generating the stream.
Entry Point IP address of the Entry Point on which stream is ingested.
File Extension File extension of the ingested object. For example, .mp4 or .m3u8
Stream ID Unique identifier associated with a stream generated by the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč provisioning workflow.
Stream Type Type of stream - Primary or Backup.
Time Set automatically. Indicates the time in UTC format when the content was ingested.
Unique End Point The URL path after the Stream ID in the ingest URL.
For manifest files, the file name is part of the Unique End Point.
For segment requests, the file name (last path element) is omitted.
Also indicates the bit rate of the stream.

Examples:
- For manifest files:
bph1demo_1/r2/prog_index.m3u8

- For segment requests:
bph1demo_5/r2/1474867214
