What is DataStream

DataStream

DataStream captures the billions of platform interactions between end users, Akamai Edge servers, and the origin servers as logs and aggregated metrics on performance, events, and errors. These logs are then aggregated and made available to your operations teams through push or pull APIs.

Akamai customers can now leverage these unprecedented insights to have near real-time visibility of how their CDN is impacting end-user engagement and driving positive business outcomes.

Near Real-time Logs

Get log data on usage, performance, errors, and events in less than 10 seconds.

Push and Pull APIs

DataStream supports real-time push- and pull-based delivery mechanisms.

Storage and Retention

Default data retention for up to 24 hours for offline and historical analysis.

Stream Selectability

DataStream allows selectability of log fields, sample rates, and data collection windows to stream only the data of interest for the desired duration.

Pre-aggregated Metrics

DataStream empowers users to establish customized metrics and dimensions for data aggregation.

Analytics Platform Integrations

DataStream allows exporting of data in the desired format to the preferred analytics platform.
