Announcing Real-Time Log Delivery with the Edgecast Content Delivery Network

What is RTLD?

Real-Time Log Delivery is a log streaming service that delivers edge request data to the endpoint of your choice in less than 60 seconds — 500% faster than any competitor. In fact, it’s the fastest log delivery in the industry.

Here’s how RTLD works

Each time there is a request for content, the Edgecast CDN tracks that request via a log entry. These logs contain metadata about the request, such as who requested it, where it was served from, what the content was, and the performance quality of our response. More than 20 data fields are currently available. You select the information you’ll receive, avoiding data that isn’t relevant to your business needs. If you prefer, we can provide pre-built reports and dashboards.

Broad compatibility

Real-Time Log Delivery currently integrates with:

  • Amazon S3
  • A web server via HTTP POST/PUT
  • Splunk
  • Sumo Logic
  • And others

Delivering value

Another advantage of RTLD is usage-based billing. You only pay for the amount of data you transmit through the service. There is no minimum fee or setup cost. You get full transparency and control over your investment.

Use case: RTLD in action

RTLD is currently being used to help businesses make better decisions, sooner. A leading image-centric lifestyle website needed to improve its website’s performance to handle fluctuations in regional demand. Utilizing RTLD to track metadata enabled them to understand user demand and make CDN decisions that optimized performance, delivering the consistent quality of experience their customers expect 24 x 7.
