Akamai Internet Visualization App
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
What does Internet traffic actually look like? Is it possible to visualize web-based attacks as they’re happening? How does the world’s largest distributed computing platform deliver music, streaming video and other data?
Akamai Technologies puts the Internet in your hands with its Internet Visualization App. We offer a unique perspective on Internet traffic—because our global platform carries more of it than anyone else!
Our Internet Visualization App gives you a customizable view of Internet traffic carried by our more than 100,000 servers, located in countries all over the world*. You can search by zip code to find the data center closest to you, and zoom in to see local Internet traffic data in real time.
Akamai’s global platform also plays a critical role in defending against and mitigating Internet based attacks and security threats. The Internet Visualization app enables you to view threat traffic as it happens, on a global or local scale.
It’s also possible to see how Akamai’s network can leverage end users’ machines to help deliver content, applications and more thanks to our NetSession view.
This free app can give you a better understanding of the scale, complexity, and sheer traffic volume and trends happening right now on the Internet.
*In some cases (for example China), Akamai leverages partnerships for traffic distribution.
What's New in Version 1.2
updated NetSessions feed
data display is pretty but unusable
a picture of this app will end up in a Tufte lecture for sure.
weird though. akamai knows how to do it right. I stopped by their website on the night of iOS 5 and they had a great browser-based display of internet traffic.
but as is, this app is almost useless. that picture of the earth you see in the app description -- that's all you get. you can spin the earth so you can look from the side, kind of.
3x crashes in 1st minute
Invasive-wants location even when app not running.
My primary purpose was to watch attack info, but all it shows is a red laser-like line terminating in a country with no metrics.
To Akamai's credit, at least they tried, I was searching for an Arbor-ATLAS visualization.
This is a great app. Please bring iPhone 5 large screen support.
