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.
This information is part of a limited availability release. For more information, see our product and feature lifecycle descriptions.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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|
Fees for Origin Inspector are charged per each unique origin sending traffic to Fastly each calendar day. We call this an "origin day." We multiply the number of origin days by your origin day rate to find your daily charge. Your monthly charge is the summation of the daily charges across a single billing month.
