CDN Monitoring

Handbook

 

 

CDNs have become a critical extension of modern IT infrastructure. They offer a variety of benefits to applications including increasing site availability, reducing latency, optimizing content, and ensuring performance expectations are met when expanding to new markets.

Monitoring your CDN helps you implement real-time performance-based CDN routing or identify geographic areas that may be better suited to a second CDN. The ability to benchmark your CDN’s performance variations over time helps identify performance patterns and enables you to hold the CDN accountable to the agreed upon SLA.

This CDN Monitoring handbook covers:

  • Why should you monitor your CDN? 
  • What aspects of your CDN should you monitor (last mile, origin server, etc)
  • Measuring the success of a CDN
