Akamai Traffic Reports: New Features

December 12, 2019 · by Carm Janneteau ·

Akamai Traffic Reports in the Akamai Control Center now provide a number of new features that enable more robust insights into traffic and offloading activities!

Our new capabilities include the Traffic Report, which now provides the ability to see a new offload perspective that is based on filtering by cacheable content. Additionally, you can now filter by Group (typically representing contracts at the top level and then subgroups which could include users, properties, and hostnames) within the CP code selector so you can get a view of only the relevant properties. We’ve also reinstated our Top Visitors Report so you can view the top IP addresses to visit your site.

Filter by Cacheable Content

You can get deeper insights into offload by filtering by cacheable content.  To view only cacheable content, go to Akamai Reports in the Control Center and select “Cacheable” in the Cacheability module in the left-hand sidebar. 

Reporting dashboard shows a module in the dashboard that allows you to filter in order to see only cacheable content.

Filter by Group in the CP Code Selector

For even easier filtering, we added a Group filter. Now, you can more easily review reports on a specific set of properties by limiting the number of CP Codes to a Group.

The Group filter is accessible in the left-hand sidebar in your traffic report under Customer Data. You can select any Group(s), then select the CP codes that you want to view. This filter is available on the following reports: Page Views, Today's Traffic, Traffic, Traffic by Browser & OS, Traffic by Geography, URL Responses, URL Traffic, Origin Performance, SureRoute. Prefetching, and Top Visitors.
