Spring Release Script Manager & mPulse

Monitor and Optimize Third-Party Scripts' Performance and Impact

April 19, 2018 · by Carm Janneteau ·

This is one in a series of posts about the Akamai 2018 Spring Release. For an overview of the Spring Release, see our post here

Almost every website today has third-party scripts running on it. Controlling how and when third-party content is displayed is an increasingly important part of delivering your experience.

Scripts can pose a big performance hurdle on websites, specifically third-party scripts, which are primarily out of your control. In a recent blog post, we outlined some of the problems and introduced Script Management as a solution to help manage and mitigate performance impact.

In the following video we show you how to discover and monitor potential third-party script issues using mPulse, and then manage the impact of those scripts using Script Management. This is another great feature in the Akamai 2018 Spring Release, and we hope you enjoy it!
