The Traffic tab (ACE - Realtime)

These reports provide near real-time information on the overall number of hits and volume transferred, as well as traffic per individual subcustomer ID and domain. All of this within a latency of 10 minutes.

Start by setting up a filter

Use the Filters panel to customize your report. You can set these options:

Note: If you've already set filters for another report's tab in the Akamai Cloud Embed - Realtime reports, those filters are automatically applied when you access this tab. If this tab doesn't support one or more of those filters, you'll receive a message.

  • Date Range (Required). Click the date range field and determine a range of time you want for report data. See Set the date/time range for a report for more information. The intention of this report is to gather recent, near real-time data. (You can access data as far back as 21 hours from the current time.) Based on your active timezone, it may appear as if you can also select tomorrow's date. This is because data is gathered using the UTC timezone. If you select outside of the this time range, an error message is revealed, requesting that you adjust the Start Time and End Time to sync with your applicable time zone. If you need a broader range of historic data, try the The Traffic tab (ACE - Historical).
  • CP Code (Required). A content provider (CP) code is a unique identifier we assign to you for reporting, billing, and monitoring traffic served over the Akamai network. Someone in your organization assigns a friendly name to a CP code when it's created—either via a tool in Akamai Control Center or an API, or with the help of your Akamai account representative. Click each desired CP code to include in the filter or, if you know the name or number of the desired CP code, type it in the Filter field to refine the results. You can also click All to include every CP code.
  • Sub Customer Domain. Use this to filter report data on a specific subcustomer domain name. Use the accompanying drop-down to apply the desired argument for filtering. For example, set this to Starts With and input "mydomain" to include only report data for Subcustomer domains that begin with that value.
  • Sub Customer ID. Use this to filter report data on a specific ID value you've established for your subcustomers. Use the accompanying drop-down to apply the desired argument for filtering. For example, set this to Not Contains and input "football_plays" to ensure that the subcustomer whose ID is "football_plays" is left out of report data.

The widgets

Each individual content panel in the reporting tabs is referred to as a "widget." Several widgets make up your report in this tab.

Widget Description
Total Hits This displays information on the total number of hits—successful and error—per second to edge servers to access content, over the time range specified. (This widget also displays the overall totals.)
Total Volume This displays the total bandwidth usage for all requests (hits)—succesful and error—from all edge servers, over the time range specified. (This widget also displays the overall totals for these three values.)
Summary by Sub Customer Id This displays information on end user access for content, on a per-ACE subcustomer ID basis. (End users request access to content via a subcustomer policy, and each policy is assigned a unique subcustomer ID.)
  • Edge. All hits to edge servers from end users attempting to access content via an ACE subcustomer policy.
  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the edge to end users accessing content via an ACE subcustomer policy. This also includes overhead bytes.
  • Error Hits. All hits to edge servers from a subcustomer ID, that resulted in an error.
Summary by Sub Customer Domain This displays information on end user access for content, on a per-ACE subcustomer domain basis. (End users request access to content via a subcustomer domain that's been associated with the subcustomer policy that determines how to distribute content.)
  • Edge. All hits to edge servers from end users attempting to access content via that subcustomer domain.
  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the edge to end users accessing content via that subcustomer domain. This also includes overhead bytes.
  • Error Hits. All hits to edge servers that initiated delivery of content, but stopped delivery because of an error.
