The Traffic tab (ACE - Historical)

These reports provide historical information on the overall number of hits and volume transferred, as well as traffic per individual subcustomer ID, domain and geographic "server price zone."

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 - Historical 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. You can also set a Time and Timezone for this report. However, certain time zones may not work with this report because data is collected on an hourly basis using the UTC time zone.
  • 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.
  • IP Version. Select the applicable IP version for traffic—IPV4, IPV6, or All for both.
  • Delivery Option. Select the traffic security level—Enhanced Secure Traffic for HTTPS secure traffic that uses an Enhanced TLS Edge certificate, Non-Secure for HTTP traffic, Standard Secure Traffic for HTTPS secure traffic that uses a Standard TLS Edge certificate, Standard Secure Traffic (Shared Certificate) for HTTPS secure traffic that uses the Akamai shared certificate, or All Traffic.

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. Here's an example of the "Traffic by Sub Customer Id" widget in the Traffic tab" widget in the Traffic tab:



Widget Description
Hits This displays information on the number of hits per second for content. These hits are categorized as Edge, Midgress, Origin, and Offload hits. (This widget also displays the overall totals for these three values.)
  • Edge Hits. All hits to Edge servers from end users.
  • Midgress Hits. Includes hits from Edge servers to other Edge servers, to obtain cached content. This includes prefetched content and inter-media format fragments.
  • Origin Hits. All hits from Edge server to an origin to obtain content. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.
Volume This displays the total bandwidth usage at all the servers, over the date range specified. This is categorized as volume at the Edge, Midgress, Origin, and Offload volume. (This widget also displays the overall totals for these three values.)
  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the Edge to the end user. This also included overhead bytes.
  • Midgress Volume. The total object bytes transferred from one Edge server to another Edge server, to obtain cached content. This includes prefetched content and inter-media format fragments.
  • Origin Volume. The total number of bytes, including overhead bytes, transferred from the origin to the Edge server. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.
Traffic 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.
  • Origin Hits. All hits from Edge servers to an origin to obtain content. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.
  • Origin Volume. The total number of bytes, including overhead bytes, transferred from the origin to the Edge server. This includes NetStorage and "Your Origin" (custom) origins.
Traffic 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.
Traffic by Server Price Zone ACE traffic is delivered and monetized via servers located in multiple geographic regions.
  • Edge. All hits to Edge servers from end users attempting to access content from that server price zone location.
  • Edge Volume. The total number of bytes transferred from the Edge to end users accessing content from that server price zone location. This also includes overhead bytes.

You can modify your filters

Click to further refine the specific data for all widgets in the report. The same options discussed above are available for use.

Toggle between Table and Chart view

Click the table icon () or the chart icon () to switch between these views in a widget.

Aggregation of data is affected by Chart view

If a widget offers a Chart view that displays a line graph, there is a limit on the number of data points that can be plotted. This limit affects the aggregation of data revealed, based on the range of time you specify. See Widget data aggregation and Chart view for more information.

Analyze data

Click the magnifying glass icon () to customize the kind of data that is shown in the widget. See Analyze data shown in a report for more information.

Download the widget's data

Click the download icon () in a widget to download a comma-separated value (.csv) data file of the report output.
