Real User Monitoring

Real User Monitoring (RUM) provides performance monitoring of webpages based on data collected from real end-users. With RUM, you can gather data about an individual page request, and send that data back to ​Akamai​ for processing.


This is ​Akamai​'s legacy real user monitoring tool. We recommend that you use the mPulse behavior, instead.

How it works

RUM injects JavaScript into HTML pages served to end-user clients that monitors page-load performance and 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.
