Bandwidth

The first part of the Bandwidth page is the Timeline graph, which plots bandwidth in Kbps or Mbps over time. The time axis units depend on the current time filter setting. For example, with the time set to 1 day, the time axis shows units of hours:

If you hover the mouse pointer over a point on the plot, the bandwidth at that point is displayed in a box alongside the mouse pointer, with five-minute granularity.

You can also drag either the left or right side of the zoom control just beneath the timeline to focus on a narrower range of times.

Two traces are displayed: Last Mile (Actual) – last-mile bandwidth as routed through the Instart service – and Last Mile (Original) – bandwidth as it would have been had it not been routed through the service.Below and to the left is the Location display. This has two ways of visualizing locations that requests have come from – a global map (the default view), or a donut chart. These are selected by clicking the icons at the top right of the box.

For the map view, you can hover the mouse pointer over a country on the map to display numeric data for that particular country:

For the donut chart view, you can similarly hover over one of the segments of the donut to display numeric data for that particular country:

To the right of the location data is a bar graph display of the bandwidth Total:

Below the location data is a donut chart display of Cache Hits vs. Misses. As with the Location chart, you can hover the mouse pointer over a segment of the chart to display numeric data.

To the right of the cached/uncached graph is the bandwidth Meter:

Below the cached/uncached graph is a sortable table of Content Types:

Click on the column headers to sort the data in ascending or descending order.

Finally, there is the Browser Breakdown, a donut chart that breaks down bandwidth by browser. You can hover the mouse pointer over a segment of the chart to display numeric data.
