Edge Performance Analytics Module

Edge Performance Analytics provides granular information traffic and bandwidth usage for the HTTP Large, HTTP Small, and ADN platforms. This information can then be used to generate trending statistics, which allow you to gain insight on how your assets are being cached and delivered to your clients. In turn, this allows you to form a strategy on how to optimize the delivery of your content and to determine what issues should be tackled to better leverage the CDN. As a result, not only will you be able to improve data delivery performance, but you will also be able to reduce your CDN cost structure.

All reports use UTC/GMT notation when specifying a date/time.

Reports & Log Collection

CDN activity data must be collected by the Edge Performance Analytics module before it can generate reports on it. This collection process occurs once a day and it covers the activity that took place during the previous day. This means that a report's statistics represent a sample of the day's statistics at the time it was processed, and do not necessarily contain the complete set of data for the current day. The primary function of these reports is to assess performance. They should not be used for billing purposes or exact numeric statistics.

If billing is your primary purpose for viewing a report, then you should generate and analyze reports (e.g., Traffic Summary, Bandwidth, or Data Transferred) in the Core Reports module.

The raw data from which Edge Performance Analytic reports are generated is available for at least 90 days.

Asset/Directory Location

Certain reports (e.g., By File, By File Detail, By Directory, etc.) need to specify a unique path to an asset or a directory. They are able to do so through the use of a CDN URL path. A CDN URL path starts with the content access point. This involves truncating the protocol and hostname from the CDN URL.

For the purposes of the Edge Performance Analytics module, edge CNAME URLs are converted to their equivalent CDN URLs. This allows an accurate tally for all statistics associated with an asset regardless of the CDN or edge CNAME URL used to request it.

Sample CDN URL:


Sample CDN URL path:


The above sample CDN URL path starts with a content access point (e.g., /000001). A content access point (i.e., /yyANThis term represents your customer account number (e.g., 0001) which can be found in the upper right-hand corner of the MCC. or /80ANThis term represents your customer account number (e.g., 0001) which can be found in the upper right-hand corner of the MCC./CustomerOrigin) starts with an origin identifier. The first two digits of an origin identifier indicate whether the asset is stored on a CDN (i.e., 00) or a customer origin server (i.e., 80).
