How to interpret CDN Insights for the App Platform

Hi there,

I am running an App with a PHP backend and JavaScript frontend on the app platform.

When looking into the insights, I can interpret the graphs for “CPU %” and “Memory %”, but the other three graphs referring to “CDN Ingress” I am not sure about.

Could anybody explain me the role of the “CDN Ingress” in the App Platform infrastructure?

Thanks :)

Hi there @TomHe,

Ingress handles the incoming HTTP traffic to your application. You can think of it as the system that handles the requests made to your application and makes sure that the requests reach the correct component.

The Ingress statistics show you the number of handled requests, the status codes of each request, the overall bandwidth and the latency of the requests.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby

So where is “egress” traffic graph? that one that you charge extra for?
