Measurements are foundational to all aspects of network operations, including diagnosing performance problems, determining reliability, and planning capacity. Metrics allow operators and planners to take informed actions, but how do we ensure that the numbers are meaningful? Are there cases when our interpretation of network metrics is different than what they actually measure and report?
In this session, we'll examine the challenges around measuring CDN performance and focus on the different methods for measurement. We'll discuss what to measure, important metrics to focus on, and different ways that numbers may mislead you.
