Last week we made several improvements to our backend control panel that powers CDN.net. Users now have a whole new level of insight into their CDN.net service. As a note, you’ll want to review the procedure to login to the backend control panel (OnApp) on our help site.
You now have full disclosure on your cache hit statistics, down to a PoP by PoP level hit rate. Want to see an even cooler report? You’re able to see the individual speeds for every PoP in our network.
For users who are doing podcast or game delivery, the next report is going to give you tremendously valuable insight on the amount of downloads. Now we have top file report, showing your most frequently accessed files. In our example, we’re using the CDN.net website, so most of the files are extremely small.
Next in line – our top referrer report, which will show you who is sending the most traffic to your CDN hosted files.
We’ve also introduced a status code report. This report is extremely valuable, because you’re able to monitor the health of your CDN resources. Most importantly, you want to avoid status codes of 301, which indicates the traffic is being sent back to the origin. Let us know, and we can help you remove these!
Want to see what your traffic looks like on a country by country level? Now it’s available, on our visitors report. Another great metric is the speed, allowing you to diagnose any speed issues on a country by country basis.
Finally, you’re able to monitor the bandwidth usage of your live streams on a resource by resource basis.
