Reports – Traffic

This page explains traffic section of the console reports

Overview

Traffic reports section allows you to see traffic history and usage statistics. You can identify the prime time of your service and see traffic usage over time.

Example of Traffic report

The “Start date” and “End date” define the report start and end dates to display.

Fetch report button updates the report after selecting the dates. By default a report for the last week is shown.

Stream selection allows you to see traffic for specific stream or as in example a combined traffic of all video streams.

Total Video, CDN Video, Offloaded Video, Other(non video) show you how much of the traffic has been delivered by your CDN and how much has been p2p offloaded. You can as well see the Traffic selected history for the selected.

Efficiency is a percentage of the traffic that went p2p instead of being delivered from the CDN. In this example, Peerplug saved 81.24% of total traffic.

It is easy to see as more traffic is required, more traffic goes p2p while service/CDN load is almost constant.

“Weekdays for day average” and “Traffic daily average”

You may be interested to see how much traffic you use on different weekdays. People tend to services in different ways depending on the weekday.

For example, during the working week days people tend to use OTT services later at the evening after the work while during weekend OTT usage is more spread throughout the day.

If you would like to see an average traffic usage for specific weekdays, select those weekdays and fetch the report. The bottom graph will show you how on average the traffic is being used during selected weekdays.

For example, if we would like to see how much traffic we use on Saturdays in January we will set:

Start date 1st of January of that year

End date 31st of January of that year

Only select the Saturday checkbox.
