To kick off April, we thought we’d release a small update to the connections tab in the Networking section. This tab provides a snapshot of connections hitting your application every 5 minutes. While this works quite nicely for busy applications, it doesn’t always work very well for testing prior to sending production traffic. This is due to the fact that it only takes a snapshot of traffic every 5 minutes, and then it only holds that data for 10 minutes.
While we can still only take a traffic snapshot every 5 minutes due to the sheer volume of traffic hitting our network, we now have expanded how long we retain this data. We now retain it for a 25 minute period, and you can select how much you want to show in the table.
Eventually this tab will be completely replaced with a live traffic snapshot containing much more data, but since that is not due out till later this year, we hope that this small improvement helps in the interim.
That’s it for this update. Please send us your feedback! As we continue to evolve our solution to be the leading ADC-as-a-Service platform, we want to know what you think.
