The URLs Legacy tab (AMD)

The URLs Legacy report for Adaptive Media Delivery (AMD) lets you review historical data on a per-URL basis for one or more Akamai Content Provider (CP) codes, over a range of time you specify. The period of time defaults to the current day.

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 Adaptive Media Delivery > 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 this field and determine a range of dates you want for report data. See Set the date/time range for a report for more information. You can gather data from the last 90 days.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Delivery Format. If you want to filter the results to a specific media format, select it here. The "Others" selection here applies to all other media formats not listed for selection.
  • Delivery Option. Select the traffic security level—HTTP for non-secure traffic, or HTTPS for forms of secure traffic—those that use an Enhanced TLS Edge certificate, the Akamai shared certificate, or a Standard TLS Edge certificate.
  • Delivery Type. Select from On Demand, Live, or All for both. ("All" is the default.)

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 Legacy tab

  • Show only 'All OK Hits' per URL. Show only successful Edge hits for each URL.
  • Show only 'All Error Hits' per URL. Show only Edge hits that resulted in an error for each URL.
  • Show only '{Response Code}' per URL. Show only hits that resulted in that response code. 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.).
