DataStream overview

DataStream is a reporting API service that lets you monitor all transactions delivered through the Akamai platform, and sends the transaction log data to one or more destinations. It provides real-time access to application activity data, including aggregated metrics on complete request-response cycles as well as origin response times.

DataStream complements your existing application performance monitoring (APM) infrastructure by offering a secure, simple, and transparent point of integration for accessing data and applications delivered over the Akamai platform.

This feature helps simplify web application monitoring and includes applications deployed to cloud hosting providers and applications that leverage third-party services.

To integrate DataStream’s API data feed with your existing APM tool set, use Property Manager to enable DataStream in your existing configuration and monitoring infrastructure.

DataStream doesn’t require changes to your origin application code, networking infrastructure, or end-user device instrumentation.

To support this service, you need to update your property configurations in Control Center. For more information, see Enable DataStream on your property.
