About the Home page

The Home page displays summary information about all services associated with your account. Think of it as a dashboard where you can get quick insights and basic information about your services along with some aggregate, high-level metrics about them. You can use the dashboard to view who's a user on your team and edit their roles or even invite more users to your account. The dashboard also provides links to helpful resources you may need as you navigate your way around the Fastly app.

  • highest number of requests per second
