CDN Graphs and Statistics
The following graphs are available on the CDN overview page.
The Peak Bandwidth graph displays the peak throughput as an aggregation of bytes per second across all the polling periods within a selected timeframe. This is represented separately as the throughput for the CDN to end-users (Peak Edge Bandwidth) and the throughput for the CDN pulling from your origin (Peak Bandwidth to Origin).
The Bandwidth graph will show you information on the amount of bandwidth used from delivering CDN assets (Edge Bandwidth), and the bandwidth from performing origin pulls (Bandwidth to Origin).
The Requests graph will show you the number of individual HTTP requests handled by the CDN(Edge Requests), and the number of requests that were sent to the origin for assets that were not in cache (Requests to Origin).
Delivery by Data Center
A bubble map of which StackPath data centers delivered your content and how much they respectively delivered.
Cache Hit Ratio
A graph of the proportion of your traffic that required accessing your origin, both transfer and requests. The purpose of these metrics is to give a high-level understanding of how efficiently you are utilizing the CDN's cache from both bytes-transferred- and individual-hit ratios. The higher the ratios are, the more efficiently you are using the CDN
The Transfer Hit Ratio is calculated by taking the amount of data delivered from the CDN Cache, divided by the total amount of data delivered by the CDN (including cache misses) for a given month. Higher hit ratios are preferred, showing a large amount of CDN data delivery with a small number of Origin pulls.
The Request Hit Ratio is calculated by taking the number of requests to the CDN Cache, divided by the total number of requests to the CDN (including ones that result in Origin Pulls) for content delivery in a given month. Higher Hit ratios are desired, indicating a large number of hits from the CDN, with a small number of requests to the origin.
Depending on the kind of content you are hosting, and how often content is updated, the cache hit ratio will vary.
