My colleague Jarrod Guthrie sent me a blog post with information about four
new reports for CloudFront.
Amazon CloudFront continues to add reporting features. Recently, launched we’ve
usage charts, cache statistics reports, a popular object report, and
near-real time operational metrics via Amazon CloudWatch. Today, CloudFront
added four more reports that will give you more visibility into who
your end users are – Locations, Browsers, and OS (all grouped under
Viewer reports) and a Top Referers report.
The Viewer reports include three different ways to look at your users:
by the browser that they’re using, by the operating system that
they’re using, and by their geographic location.
Browsers – The Browsers report shows top browsers that
your end users used to access your content. You can display either a
bar chart or a pie chart by browser name or by browser name and
Here’s what the pie chart looks like:
The Browser Trends report shows daily trends in requests by browser:
Operating Systems – As with the Browser reports, the
Operating Systems report show the top operating systems that your end
users are using as well as daily trends by operating system, either as
a bar chart or a pie chart:
Locations – You can see the top 50 countries where
your end user requests are coming from or the top U.S. states. The
report includes the request count from each country, the number of
requests in a country as a percent of total requests, and the number
of bytes delivered to your end users in each country. You can also
display a trends chart that shows how request counts are changing
for selected countries or states.
Any request for an object on your domain has a HTTP header caller
Referer. This header indicates the URL of the webpage from where the
request to the object on your domain (or website) was made. The
referer header could reference a search engine, another website that links
directly to your objects, or your own website. Here’s a sample report:
The new reports are available now under the Reporting & Analytics section of the CloudFront Management console:
