CDNetworks

Type of Data

CDN Bandwidth, CDN Usage

Description

Usage

Usage shows the outbound GBs transferred by the CDN edge servers for the reporting period. The Openmix app queries the Usage metric as a means to determine if cost must be considered for DNS routing. If the CDN is approaching a target where the customer’s cost increases (above the SLA) due to usage, the Openmix app can select an alternative CDN.

Bandwidth

Bandwidth shows the recent or current (last 5–15 minutes) amount of outbound traffic the CDN is actively serving for the customer in Mbps. The Openmix app uses Bandwidth as a means to determine the current traffic load for a CDN. The Openmix app can then route around CDNs currently serving heavy volume.

Set up in Fusion

You can access Fusion Data Feeds from the left navigation pane, under Openmix. For initial steps refer to the Fusion Integration Documentation.

When you get to the service-specific configuration dialog box, enter the following:

  • Name: The name given to the data feed. This defaults to “Service - Platform Name” if not specified.
  • Run Every: How often the data feed is updated from the service.
  • Platform: The Platform that is associated with the data feed.
  • Username: User name to access the control center
  • Password: Password to access the control center

Once the Fusion CDNetworks installation is complete, it is listed on the Fusion data feeds home page with a green status and monitoring metrics in the log history.

To edit a Fusion data feed click the data feed in the list and then click the Edit button. Once you have changed the configuration, click Save. This brings you back to the data feed list with your changes saved and applied to the data feed.
