How Do You Monitor CDNs?

CDN performance tests conducted using ThousandEyes Cloud Agents provide deep insights into CDN content delivery, including geographic CDN load balancing, latency and availability. We monitor the performance of your application, origin and CDN edge, so you can quickly pinpoint and diagnose issues. Now, you can gain insight into how CDNs will affect application delivery and perform CDN comparisons across regions and over time with page load, transaction and HTTP tests that include rich network measurements, Layer 3 Path Visualization and BGP route visualizations.

CDN Monitoring: From Users to Edge to Origin

ThousandEyes helps you monitor CDN-fronted services by measuring performance and detecting issues with content delivery. Whether you use one CDN in a single geography, or load balance several around the world, having visibility into edge locations and paths to your origin servers is invaluable for troubleshooting.

Get Key CDN Insights From Global Deployments of Cloud Agents

ThousandEyes simulates page views and network connections to reveal detailed object-level timings, network paths and CDN edge performance, which can then be easily shared with your CDN provider to resolve performance problems. ThousandEyes enables you to measure CDN performance with key insights from globally positioned Cloud Agents that pinpoint potential user experience impacts.

  • Monitor CDN edge locations, page objects, and compare response time and latency
  • Measure transaction and page load times, fetch time, latency, loss and more to determine how performance varies
  • Locate edge servers and identify cache hits, misses or corruption with HTTP headers
