The edit screen for Rackspace Cloudfiles configurations now allows to toggle the delivery of access logs per container. This makes setting up logging analytics for your Akamai content distribution even easier without having to use a thirdparty tool or console.
We want to share the following best practice when configuring a S3 bucket or CloudFront distribution for logging.
- The logging target should be another S3 bucket than the origin. Otherwise your report will include requests for log files delivered by Amazon and download requests for log files.
- Use a different logging target bucket for every S3 bucket and CloudFront distribution. Or at least choose a different logging target prefix. This will help Qloudstat to fetch your log files more efficiently.
