Akamai DataStream


Connect Datadog with Akamai DataStream to see your CDN health, latency, offload, and error metrics.



Install the integration with the Datadog Akamai integration tile.


Metric collection

First, add an Akamai account:

  1. In the Luna Control Center, go to Configure > Organization > Manage APIs and create a new client with at least “READ-ONLY” access to the “DataStream” API.
  2. Select the newly created API in the “Users and API Clients” list. Under “Credentials”, create a new Client token. Copy the given information to the Datadog Akamai integration tile. Press “Update Configuration”.

Add the list of streams to monitor:

  1. On DataStream (available under Configure > Performance Analytics > DataStream), select a stream with ‘Aggregated metrics’ configured, and copy the ID to the stream list section of the Akamai integration tile.

You can set multiple accounts (or hosts), but make sure to link each stream to an account.

Only streams with the 'Aggregated metrics' type are supported.
