Adaptive Image Compression report

When ​Akamai​ serves compressed images, it reduces the data needed to load a page. This can speed up performance.

Round Trip Time (RTT) determines the quality of network conditions. Adaptive Image Compression (AIC) compresses images to improve performance based on this quality tier, either poor, good, or excellent.

Network types include either mobile or non-mobile networks. Note that ​Akamai​'s edge platform detects the network type (mobile or non-mobile), not the device. For example, a laptop using a cellular network to reach your site is mobile, and a tablet using Wi-Fi is non-mobile.

Filters

Select at least one required filter in every report. For optional filters, making no selection returns all associated data for that filter.

  • CP code (required). Content provider (CP) codes let you segment your delivered content for tracking and reporting purposes. All CP codes have ties to one or more services, which are tracked and reported under that CP code.

Metrics

  • Poor/good/excellent network conditions. Round Trip Time (RTT) determines the quality of network conditions. AIC compresses images to improve performance based on this quality tier, either poor, good,
    or excellent. The report time series graphs show you the rate of this improvement per quality tier.

  • All networks hits. The rate of compressed images served per second to improve performance, based on network conditions. Includes hits on both mobile and non-mobile networks.

  • All networks hits/sec. The rate of compressed images served per second to improve performance, based on network conditions. Includes hits on both mobile and non-mobile networks.

  • Mobile networks hits/sec. The rate of compressed images served per second to improve performance, based on network conditions, on mobile networks.

  • Non-mobile networks hits/sec. The rate of compressed images served per second to improve performance, based on network conditions, on non-mobile networks.

What else is in play?
Other choices you've made in configuring your ​Akamai​ services might affect how frequently or effectively Adaptive Image Compression is used. For example, quality settings for AIC, configuration settings for Front End Optimization, or recent purges of your content can impact the data you see in this report. You might want to review your configurations in Property Manager and read about those settings in the Property Manager Help.
