Load balancing analytics
Using load balancing analytics, you can:
- Evaluate traffic flow.
- Assess the health status of origin servers in your pools.
- Review changes in pools and pool health over time.
To view Overview metrics for your load balancer, go to Traffic > Load Balancing Analytics.
These metrics show the number of requests routed to specific pools within a load balancer, helping you:
- Evaluate the effects of adding or removing a pool.
- Decide when to create new origin pools.
- Plan for peak traffic demands and future infrastructure needs.
Add additional filters for specific pools, times, regions, and origins.
Latency metrics show an interactive map, helping you identify regions with Unhealthy or Slow pools.
To view latency information for your load balancer, go to Traffic > Load Balancing Analytics > Latency.
Logs provide a history of all origin server status changes and how they affect your load balancing pools. Load Balancing only logs events that represent a status change for an origin, from healthy to unhealthy or vice versa.
To access logs in the dashboard, go to Traffic > Load Balancing Analytics. You can also access healthcheck logs using the API.
For more flexibility, get load balancing metrics directly from the GraphQL Analytics API.
Get started with a sample query: This query shows the number of requests each pool receives from each location in Cloudflare’s global network. This query shows the weighted, round-trip time measurement (

SIN) to each pool in a specific load balancer.
