Origin Inspector

Origin Inspector provides you with a dataset and visualizations that offer real-time and historical visibility into responses delivered from your origin servers to the Fastly Edge Cloud. It allows you to monitor origin traffic without requiring you to send log data to a third-party data collector.

Specifically, Origin Inspector aggregates origin response data (for example, egress bandwidth, response status codes, and number of origin responses) received by a specified service and presents that information either as visualizations in the web interface or as a JSON-formatted data stream.

Prerequisites

Origin Inspector can be purchased as part of either Fastly's Essential or Professional Edge Cloud packages.

Customers with a paid account with a contract for Fastly's services can purchase Origin Inspector at the Enterprise level for a separate, additional fee rather than as part of an Edge Cloud package. Contact us at sales@fastly.com to discuss this option.

Data reporting and availability timeframes

Real-time data is reported in one-second periods up to the last complete second for a 120-second window. Historical data aggregation and retention timeframes, however, vary based on the Origin Inspector level you have purchased.

Edge Cloud Package Aggregation Timeframe Retention Timeframe
Essential Per hour 8 days
Professional Per minute 15 days
Enterprise Per minute 45 days

Billing

Fees for Origin Inspector are charged based on the number of origins sending traffic through Fastly. Where applicable, an “origin day” is one unique origin per calendar day. To discuss pricing in more detail, contact sales@fastly.com.
