CDN performance observability in minutes
We’ve partnered with leading CDN providers Akamai, Cloudflare, and Fastly to create quickstarts that bundle integration instructions, pre-built dashboards, and alerts to help you start monitoring your CDN’s performance in a matter of minutes. By integrating your CDN with New Relic, you can keep tabs on performance metrics such as load balancing, latency, availability, and other information in the context of all your telemetry data.
Akamai uses its distributed cloud platform to enable users to build, run, and secure applications in one place. Akamai DataStream 2 is a real-time log delivery solution that supports sending log files to New Relic for improved log analytics.
The Akamai DataStream 2 quickstart comes with a pre-built dashboard and 5XX error alert to let you instantly monitor Akamai performance in New Relic, such as cache-hit ratio, and view client information like browser and browser version.
