Hits (Status Codes)

Every request for content will generate an HTTP status code. This status code describes how an edge server, origin shield server, or origin server handled the request. For example, 2xx status codes indicate that the request was successfully served to a client, while a 4xx status code indicates that an error took place.

The Hits report allows you to view the frequency of each status code as a percentage of total requests. This report is based on traffic statistics tracked by our edge servers.

The data that was used to generate the pie chart can be viewed directly below it. The following information will be reported for each status code: a description of the status code, the total number of hits generated by that status code, and the percentage of total hits for which it was returned.

To generate a Hits (Status Codes) report

  1. Load the Hits (Status Codes) report.

    1. From the main menu, navigate to Analytics | Core Reports.
    2. From the side navigation bar, expand Hits and then select the desired platform and protocol combination (e.g., HTTPS Large).

    A graph will display status code statistics for the selected platform(s) over the last week for all POPs.

  2. Optional. Use the Date Range option to define either a custom or predefined (e.g., This Week) time period for which report data will be generated.
