1. Filter Data Interval

Every graph options of Analytics products have a Data Interval Filter.The graphs are updated and present the information according to the criteria selected in the filter.


2. Export to CSV

After applying the filters, you can export the information to a CSV file, to perform this action, click on the CSV icon next to the desired graphic.


3. How to Interpret the Graphics

The information is presented according to the solution and the time interval selected in the filters, the graphs presented are grouped in:


4. Data Transferred

This tab presents graphs with the information referring to the volume of data transferred by the solution you selected, this tab presents 4 graphs referring to the volume of data transferred in the solution and in the selected period, as follows:

Total Data: This graph shows the sum (Saved Data + Missed Data) of the volume of data trafficked in the solution and in the selected period, hover over the graph to see the exact value trafficked in the period.

The values displayed at the bottom of the graph are the sum of the volume in the range.

Data Offloaded: This graph shows the percentage of the volume of data that was delivered by the Azion solution, that is, it is the representation of the Saved Data graph only in percentages, hover over the graph to see the exact percentage in the selected range.

The values displayed at the bottom of the graph are the interval measures.

Saved Data (Data Delivered by the Cache): This chart shows the volume of data that was delivered by Azion’s servers, in order words, without searching for content on the origin server, hover over the chart to see the exact value of the period.

The values displayed at the bottom are the sum of the volume of the range.

Missed Data (Data Delivered by the Origin): This chart shows the volume of data that was delivered by the origin server, in other words, the request was made to Azion’s servers, but the content had not been transferred from the origin to them. The moment the originating server fulfills the request; it also sends the content to Azion’s servers.

The values displayed at the bottom of the graph are the sum of the volume in the range.

Bandwidth Usage

Total Bandwidth Usage: Number of Mbps used by the band.At the bottom of the graph shows the average of the band used in the interval.

Bandwidth Offload: Percentage of bandwidth that was downloaded.

At the bottom of the graph shows the average of the band used in the interval.

Saved Bandwidth: Number of Mbps of the band that was delivered by CDN without having to search the content on the origin server.

At the bottom of the graph shows the average of the band used in the interval.

Missed Bandwidth: Number of Mbps of the band, up to the origin server of the content.


5. Requests

Total Requests: Number of customer requests to the content. At the bottom of the graph shows the sum of requests for the interval.

Saved Requests: Number of requests that were delivered by Azion’s servers, that is, without searching for content on the origin server. At the bottom of the graph we have the total number of requests delivered in the interval.

Missed Requests: Number of requests that were delivered by the origin server, in other words, the request was made to Azion’s servers, but the content had not been transferred from the origin to them. At the bottom of the graph we have the total number of requests for the origin in the interval.

Requests per Second

Total Requests per Second: Number of customer requests to the content per second at the bottom of the graph we have the average number of requests per second in the interval.

Requests per Second Offloaded: Percentage per second of requests that were delivered by Azion’s servers, that is, without fetching content from the origin server. In the footer we have the average in the interval.

Saved Requests per Second: Number of requests per second that were delivered by Azion’s servers, that is, without searching for content on the origin server. At the bottom of the graph we have the average number of requests delivered in the interval.

Missed Requests per Second: Number of requests per second that were delivered by the origin server, in other words, the request was made to Azion’s servers, but the content had not been transferred from the origin to them. At the bottom of the graph the average number of requests per second in the interval is shown.


6. Status Codes

This tab presents graphs with information regarding the Content Delivery Status codes.

Excellent documentation to deepen your knowledge of HTTP Status Codes can be found at this link: List of HTTP Status Codes . Only available in Analytics Premium.

HTTP Status Codes 2xx: This status class indicates that the user’s request was received, understood, accepted and processed by the server.

Code Description
500 Internal Server Error: It is a generic message that is given when there is an unexpected error on the server not being able to handle the request.
502 Bad Gateway: When the server is serving as a Gateway or Proxy and receives an invalid response from the origin. Usually occurs when the origin is offline.
503 Service Unavailable: Server is not available. Usually a temporary Status.
5xx Server Error: Here you can find other types of Status of requests that also generated errors but that are not very common.

7. HTTP Methods

This graph shows the requests for your site segregated by the HTTP method used. For more in-depth information about HTTP methods you can read through this URL: Hypertext Transfer Protocol . Graph available only in the Analytics Premium product.

Method Description
GET This request method only receives data from the server.
POST This request method sends data to the server.
HEAD This request method is the same as GET, but it does not receive the HTML body, only the header.
OTHERS Other request methods which are not so common, are grouped here.

8. Connections

This tab is available when the Live Streaming solution is selected. It presents information regarding the number of users connected to your company’s streams.

Average Connected Users: Average users connected to the selected Stream. At the bottom of the graph, the average number of users connected in the interval is displayed.

Max Connected Users: Maximum users connected to the selected Stream. At the bottom of the graph, the maximum number of users connected in the interval is displayed.


9. Storage (Stored Data)

This tab presents graphs with information regarding the Cloud Storage product.

Used Space: Amount of information stored by your company over time. At the bottom of the graph, the maximum storage utilization in the interval is displayed.


10. Web Application Firewall (WAF)

For customers who have the Web Application Firewall product, there is a specific graphic to show the behavior of requests.

Threats vs Requests: This graph shows the average number of attacks blocked in the selected period.

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Threats: This graph represents the average of Cross-Site Scripting attacks, a type of vulnerability typically found in web applications, which allows an attacker to insert client-side scripts into a web page viewed by other users.

Remote File Inclusion (RFI) Threats: This graph represents the average number of Remote File Inclusion attacks, a type of vulnerability typically found on websites. Allows the attacker to include a file on the web server.

SQL Injection Threats: This graph represents the average of SQL Injection type attacks, a code insertion technique used to attack data-driven applications.

Other Threats: This graph shows the average number of attacks blocked by WAF and which are not separated by the attack classifications above.
