RTLD Workflow
Log data consists a set of log entries. Each entry describes either:
  • RTLD CDN: A HTTP/HTTPS request that was directed to the Edgio network.
  • RTLD WAF: A HTTP/HTTPS request that was identified as a threat by WAF and information on why it was deemed a threat.
  • RTLD Rate Limiting: A HTTP/HTTPS request that exceeded a rate limit enforced by a Security App configuration.
  • RTLD Bot: A HTTP/HTTPS request that was identified as originating from a bot.
  • RTLD Cloud Functions: A HTTP/HTTPS request that was processed by Cloud Functions.
If our service is unable to deliver log data, then we will store it for up to 3 days and deliver it when communication resumes. If we cannot deliver log data within 3 days, then it will be permanently deleted.

Quick Start

Setting up log delivery consists of the following steps:
  1. Decide on and prepare the service or web server(s) to which log data will be delivered.
  2. If required, gather authentication information for the above destination.
  3. Create a log delivery profile for the above destination.
Configure RTLD from within the Edgio Console. Log data will be delivered regardless of whether you are using Rules or CDN-as-code.

Log Delivery Profiles

A log delivery profile identifies:
  • Where log data will be delivered.
  • The amount of data that will be delivered.
  • Whether log data will be filtered prior to delivery.
  • The set of log fields that will be delivered.

Multiple Profiles

You may create multiple profiles. This allows you to:
  • Send log data to one or more destinations. This is useful for disaster recovery.
  • Segregate log data by type within a single destination.
  • Gather more detailed data as needed.
