Web Analytics for

CDN Logs

CDN log files contain a ton of great information. Your CDN provider generates log files, and Angelfish reads these logs to create detailed website usage reports.

If you’re a customer of Akamai, Level3, CDNetworks, Amazon CloudFront, Limelight, Azure CDN, EdgeCast, etc., Angelfish will enhance your web analytics reporting capabilities. Angelfish offers:

Data Security

Angelfish is secure, on-premises web analytics software – you install it on one of your servers, and login to the application via a web browser. Data is stored within the confines of your network, and you retain access control. This also provides full data security.

Traffic Spike Analysis

Angelfish lets you select a time frame as short as a single second. If you want to see details about a traffic spike yesterday morning at 10:07:23 AM, Angelfish will show you all site activity that occurred during that particular second.

Bandwidth & Broken Link Reports

Your CDN logs contain lots of great information that is often ignored. Angelfish shows total bandwidth by web server, broken links, “Page Not Found” errors, redirects, random status codes like “I’m a teapot” (418), and more.

Stolen Bandwidth

Your CDN provider charges you for bandwidth. If another website embeds your images or videos on their site, you will be charged for your content to be shown on another website. We call this Stolen Bandwidth – it’s also called hotlinking, and Angelfish tells you if it’s happening on your site.

No Tagging Required

Angelfish *can* use JavaScript tagging, but it doesn’t *have* to. Plus, JavaScript page tags aren’t always an option, especially for distributed content. Angelfish can track visitors with page tags, session ID cookies, usernames, or IP address & user agent combos.

Track Any Website

Angelfish can do a lot more than provide web analytics for your CDN. Angelfish creates detailed usage reports for anything that runs on a web server and creates an access log, like Intranet sites, web applications, public websites, SharePoint, financial and/or HR portals, CDNs, CRMs, and more. See more examples on our Solutions Page.

Process Historical Data

If you have CDN logs from 2 years ago, you can process them in Angelfish. This works in the trial version too – try it!

Track Document Access

Angelfish shows you a list of every opened document (PDF, Excel, Word, etc.) and page on your website. And if the username is available, Angelfish shows you who accessed each document or page.

No Sampled Data

Do you occasionally see a “this report is based on X% of visits” message in Google Analytics? You won’t see this message in Angelfish. When working with large datasets, Angelfish shows you everything.
