Reporting metrics (ACE)

Here you'll find a list of the metrics available for use with the various reports dashboards for Akamai Cloud Embed (ACE—formerly "Wholesale Delivery").

Note: The actual metric name may differ slightly if you're using the Media Delivery Reports API v1, rather than the Akamai Control Center interface. To get the name used in the API and its assigned id value, run the "List Akamai Cloud Embed data stores" operation and review the response.

Edge Hits All hits to the Edge-servers from the end-users. N/A
Edge Throughput Rate of successful delivery of media from the Edge server. It is calculated as the total bytes delivered divided by the total time taken by ghost to serve the request. Values provided in Mbps. N/A
Edge Volume Total bytes transferred from the Edge to the end user. Overhead bytes (See below) are included. Values provided in GB. N/A
Origin Volume Total bytes sent by the origin in response to requests from the Akamai CDN. This is only available at the subcustomer ID level. It's not available for the subcustomer domain.
Origin Hits Total hits or requests made from the Akamai CDN to origin. This is only available at the subcustomer ID level. It's not available for the subcustomer domain.
Origin Req Volume Total bytes in the requests going from Akamai CDN to origin. This is only available at the subcustomer ID level. It's not available for the subcustomer domain.

Total Download Time Also referred to as "Throughput," this is the rate of successful delivery of content from the edge server. It's calculated as the total bytes delivered divided by the total time taken by Akamai servers to serve the request. Values are provided in Mbps. N/A
