Operations reports allow you to query offline analytics data of accelerated domain names in specified time periods. You can learn about the states of accelerated domain names and your business by analyzing the data.

Prerequisites

A domain name is added to Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN). If no domain name is added to DCDN, add one. For more information, see Add a domain name.

Features

An operations report consists of the following parameters: PV/UV, Regions and ISPs, Domain Names, Popular Referer Headers, Popular URLs, Popular Back-to-origin URLs, and Top Client IPs. You can customize an operations report and create a tracking task based on your business requirements. After you create a tracking task, operations reports are sent to the specified email address. You can learn about the status of accelerated domain names by analyzing the content of operations reports.

Customize an operations report

Before you use the operations report feature, you must customize it. The log data may not be up-to-date. Therefore, an operations report that is customized on the current day is typically generated on the next day. For example, if you customize an operations report on February 20, 2021, the operations report is generated on February 21, 2021.
