Analyzing Traffic for all Account Sites

  • Updated

This article discusses how to use the Sites Overview screen to show analytics for all sites in your account.

The Sites Overview Screen

The Sites Overview screen shows throughput data for each site in your account. The timeline graph shows the network throughput for the site and performance for the selected time range. You can then select a site to drill-down and show more specific analytics.

Getting started / Using the Timeline Graph for Sites

This table explains the fields in the timeline graph for a site.

Using the Sites Overview Screen

You can use the mouse to show specific throughput data for a point on the timeline. In addition, you can show or hide the connection status for the links.

To show the Sites Overview screen:

  • From the navigation pane, select Monitoring > Sites Overview

To show specific throughput data:

  • Hover the mouse pointer on the timeline, the specific timestamp and throughput for each link are shown.

To show or hide the link connection status:

  • For a site with multiple links, click the plus or minus icon to show or hide the link connection status.

These are the explanations of the connection status:

  • Green 360003838397-Connection_Status_-_Green.png - link is connected and active, no issues detected

  • Olive 360003930618-Connection_Status_-_Olive.png - link is connected and passive, no issues detected

  • Yellow Connection_Status_-_Orange.png - link experienced a moderate performance issue

  • Red Connection_Status_-_Red.png - link experienced a severe performance issue

  • Gray Connection_Status_-_Gray.png - link is not connected

Link Metrics for the Health Bars

If the link suffers from packet loss or a high distance, the colors of the Analytics link health bars indicate the metrics about the link health:
