hits-by-time report

The following shows how to generate the hits-by-time report using either the Reporting API’s Generate a report POST operation or the Get a cacheable report GET operation. Details about each report’s supported products, metrics, filters, and available data intervals are also available dynamically by running the API’s Get a report type operation, also shown below. See also other available reports.

Report definition

Provides traffic data (edge and origin hits) over time.

This report allows you to configure the aggregation interval for each data record. Available interval values are: MONTH, WEEK, DAY, HOUR, FIVE_MINUTES.

Business object: cpcode

Data available for: 92 days

Query parameters

Parameter Type Sample Description
Required
start String 2019-10-08T13:40:00Z Specifies the end of the reported period as an ISO–8601 timestamp with optional time zone. The report excludes any data that matches the end value’s timestamp.

interval Enumeration FIVE_MINUTES The duration of each data record. Available values: MONTH, WEEK, DAY, HOUR, FIVE_MINUTES.
Optional
allObjectIds Boolean true As an alternative to objectIds, enabling this generates a report that includes all IDs available for the cpcode objectType. This parameter is ignored if the request also specifies a set of objectIds.
objectIds String 55232,23433,32433 As an alternative to allObjectIds, specifies the set of unique IDs for the cpcode objectType you want to report on, formatted as a comma-delimited list.
metrics String edgeHitsPerSecond,edgeHitsPerSecondMax Specifies a comma-separated list of metrics to include in the report, otherwise all metrics if omitted. The set of available metrics depends on the type of report. URL-encode the entire value in the GET request.
filters String delivery_type=secure,delivery_type=non-secure,ip_version=ipv4,ip_version=ipv6 Specifies criteria to filter the report’s data. The set of available filters depends on the type of report. Separate each filter name and value with an equals (=) character, and separate various name/value pairs with commas (,). To specify more than one filter value, repeat the filter name. See the accompanying example for guidance. URL-encode the entire value in the GET request.
