Visibility from edge to origin

Adding a CDN to your delivery network is essential for improving performance and speed, but it doesn’t need to come at the cost of decreased visibility into your origin performance.

Say goodbye to complicated origin data pipelines or lack of visibility. Origin Inspector provides you with a data stream and visualizations that offer real-time and historical visibility into responses delivered from your origin servers to the Fastly Edge Cloud. Effortlessly monitor every origin response, byte, status code, and more without needing to send log data to a third-party data collector.

Simplified data pipelines 

Monitor and report on egress data within the Fastly UI without needing to set up complex data pipelines.

Improve performance
