What is 'Beacon' code?
- Project real user performance data of your domain to the 'Pulse' chart.
- Improves the CDN optimization accuracy by feeding the data to the platform.
Installing the Beacon code
Navigate to ‘DEM’ > 'Pulse', and click the ‘Install beacon code’ button.
Copy all the content in the 'Beacon code' field, and paste it just before the </head> tag of your page.
Configuring your Beacon code
There are three things you can customize:
- Startup delay: the amount of time to wait to trigger the Beacon code after a user loads the page
- Repeat delay: the amount of time to wait to re-trigger the Beacon code
# of domains to measure: if you installed the Beacon code on multiple domains, you can set the maximum number of domains to measure, and the system will randomly pick domains based on your settings.
