The Sumo Logic App for Akamai DataStream is designed to monitor and analyze the performance of your Akamai Edge server, and request handling pipeline. It helps to identify any issues that may be impacting your users' experience. This app is tailored to work with the logs generated by Akamai DataStream 2, which include valuable information about each request, such as the request path, status code, response time, and more.

Akamai DataStream app provides pre-built queries that allow you to analyze your logs by various parameters, including response time, status code, request path, and more. In addition, this app includes dashboards that allow you to visualize your log data to easily understand the trends and patterns. You can also use these dashboards to monitor key metrics, such as request volume, response time, and error rate, which assists you in identifying any anomalies or issues.

Viewing Akamai DataStream dashboards​

All dashboards have a set of filters that you can apply to the entire dashboard. Use these filters to drill down and examine the data to a granular level.

  • You can change the time range for a dashboard or panel by selecting a predefined interval from a drop-down list, choosing a recently used time range, or specifying custom dates and times. Learn more.
  • You can use template variables to drill down and examine the data on a granular level. For more information, see Filter with template variables.
  • Most Next-Gen apps allow you to provide the scope at the installation time and are comprised of a key (_sourceCategory by default) and a default value for this key. Based on your input, the app dashboards will be parameterized with a dashboard variable, allowing you to change the dataset queried by all panels. This eliminates the need to create multiple copies of the same dashboard with different queries.
