CDN metrics

Graphite Metrics with Grafana Visualization

Get an aggregated view of how your application is performing through Graphite metrics visualized in customizable Grafana charts. Easily look at how many pages you are serving, how much of your content is cached, and Varnish Cache hit rates. See how section.io metrics make it easy to follow DevOps practices.

ELK Stack Logs + Alerting

section.io leverages the power of ElasticSearch and Kibana to give you request/response logs at a granular level. Filter requests based on status code, cache hit status, originating IP address and more and use flexible alerts to notify you when things aren't performing as expected. Learn more about section.io diagnostics and alerts.

CDN configuration that takes hours, not days.
