The URLs tab (FD)

The URLs report for File Downloads (FD) allows you to review historical data for your most active ("top") URLs, based on one or more Content Provider (CP) codes and a range of time you specify. Data is gathered on a daily basis.

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 File Download - 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 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.
  • Delivery Options. Select the traffic security level—Non Secure Traffic for non-secure traffic delivered via HTTP, Secure Traffic for all secure traffic delivered via HTTPS, including Standard TLS certificate, Enhanced TLS certificate, and the Akamai shared certificate, or All Traffic for all security levels.
  • URL. Use these fields to customize report data to specific URL parameters. For example, set this to "Contains" and input a segment of a specific URL (https://myvideos/sports) to have report data displayed for all URLs that contain that segment.

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 "Top URLs, By Volume" widget in the URLs tab:



Widget Description
Top URLs, By Volume This widget displays information regarding "OK" (successful) transfer of content for your top URLs, over the date range specified. It reveals the following, as both overall values and for specific top URLs:
  • OK Volume. The volume of data transferred from the Edge to end users
  • OK Hits. The number of successful hits to Edge servers.

The URL with the highest volume transferred is listed first.

Top URLs, By Hits This widget displays information regarding "OK" (successful) hits to Edge servers for your top requested URLs. It reveals the following, as both overall values and for specific top URLs:
  • OK Hits. The number of successful hits to Edge servers.
  • OK Volume. The volume of data transferred from the Edge to end users

The URL with the highest volume transferred is listed first.

Top URLs, By Errors This widget displays error-related data for requests to your top URLs.
  • Error Hits. The total number of hits that resulted in an error.
  • OK Hits. The total number of requests to the URL that still resulted in a successful hit to the Edge.
  • Volume. The total volume of data that was still successfully ("OK") transferred for all requests to the URL.
Top URLs, By Initiated Downloads This widget displays the overall and per-URL data for all initiated download requests.
  • Initiated. The total quantity of initiated download requests. This total includes all requests, regardless of their completion status.
  • OK Volume. The total volume of data successfully ("OK") transferred for all initiated download requests.
  • OK Hits. The total number of initiated download requests that resulted in a successful hit to the Edge.
Top URLs, By Completed Downloads This widget displays the overall and per-URL data for all completed downloads.
  • Initiated. The total quantity of completed downloads, regardless if they completed OK (successful) or they resulted in an error.
  • OK Volume. The total volume of data successfully ("OK") transferred for all completed downloads.
  • OK Hits. The total number of completed download requests that resulted in successful hits to the Edge and origin.
URL Trend By Day This widget displays daily "trend" data for each of the URLs listed. Use the drop-down to customize the data shown:
Note: All options reveal data in total, and for each individual date in the specified date range.
  • Show only 'Ok volume' per URL. Show the total volume successfully ('Ok') transferred from the Edge to the end user, for each URL.
  • Show only 'Error Volume' per URL. Show the total volume of data transferred from the Edge to the end user that resulted in an error for each URL.
  • Show only 'OK Hits' per URL. Show only successful Edge hits for each URL.
  • Show only '{Response Code}' per URL. Show only hits that resulted in that response code, for the selected date range. Values of "{#}xx" reveal all response codes from that range. For example, 'Show only 3xx per URL' reveals hits that resulted in any 300 response (302, 304, etc.).
  • Show only 'Offloaded hits' per URL. Show the quantity of hits received by the Edge and successfully offloaded to the origin to obtain the target content.
  • Show only 'Origin Hits' per URL. Show the quantity of hits initiated by the Edge to your origin for each URL. (for example, after the Edge has successfully processed a hit from the Client.)
  • Show only 'Origin OK Volume' per URL. Show the total volume successfully ('OK') transferred from the origin to the Edge, for each URL.
  • Show only 'Origin Error Volume' per URL. Show the total volume of data transferred from the origin to the Edge for hits that resulted in an error, for each URL.
  • Show only 'Origin Error Hits' per URL. Show only Edge hits that resulted in an error for each URL.
  • Show only 'Initiated' hits per URL. Show all hits that were initiated for a URL, regardless of the completion status.
  • Show only 'Completed' hits per URL. Show all hits to a URL that were completed. This includes both successful (OK) and error hits.
