Intelligent insight into the performance of your content delivery network
DataStream brings near real-time middle-mile visibility through customized data logs and aggregated metrics on CDN performance, errors, and events. It provides raw logs as well as aggregated metrics through push and pull APIs, for agile and reliable CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous development) DevOps practices for your CDN configurations and digital applications.
What is 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.
