Advanced Reporting Gives You Great Insight
We just released a new robust set of reporting features to give you more insight on how your content is being distributed. You will have access to these reports so that you can drill down and easily see the usage statistics that are most important for your site.
On this release, there are three reports now available to customers in their control panel:
- Status Code Overview Report
- File Type Overview Report
- File Size Overview Report
Status Code Overview Report
MaxCDN’s HTTP Status Code Responses report will allow you to see when your website receives HTTP status code responses. No longer will you be in the dark as to when a page receives a 404 error or a 502 error. With this report you can get insight on the percentage on how many times your domain has received certain errors. Use this report to give you the reactive control needed to mitigate page errors as fast as possible.
File Type Overview Report
The Hits by File Type Statistics report delivers accurate stats on how your website assets are performing. Through an easy to view report, you can see out of the many hits that your website is getting, which assets are being requested the most. This report can give some good insight into which web assets and file types are being accessed more frequently than others and can give you the percentage of Hits to file ratio. This data can give a better picture on what file types are performing better and how to optimize the balance in the files being served on MaxCDN.
File Size Overview Report
The Hits by File Size Statistics report delivers a clear picture of the hits that your website is receiving and sorts this data by the size of the files being served across CDN. This report can be utilized by giving you insight into the hit ratio of your large and small file content that is propagated globally.
NetDNA, the parent company to MaxCDN has just released its Enhanced Reporting Suite. Currently there is one additional report only available for NetDNA clients called the Directories Overview Report. This paid report will give you insight into bandwidth transfer statistics by top level directory and zones. This powerful report can help you dive into which zones and directories generate the most Hits as well as tracking on the transfer amount for each directory. This data will let clients segment their website assets which will give enhanced reporting information on the performance and bandwidth usage for each directory on their account. For example if a client needed to know how much bandwidth and hits a specific web asset sustains, this report would give that client insight on this information. To find out more about this report please see below.
