content_​characteristics_​wsd_​live


Specifies characteristics of the delivered content, specifically targeted to delivering live video. Akamai uses this information to optimize your metadata configuration, which may result in better origin offload and end-user performance.

Along with other behaviors whose names are prefixed content​Characteristics, this behavior is customized for a specific product set. Use PAPI's List available behaviors operation to determine the set available to you. See also the related client​_characteristics and origin​_characteristics behaviors.
