Cloudflare measures the following metrics for every connection.

countCount of total events1000Count
bytesIngressSum of ingress bytes1000Sum

​​ Additional dimensions

You can divide your analytics further by the following dimensions.

eventConnection Eventconnect, progress, disconnect, originError, clientFiltered

​​ Operators for filtering

Use the operators below to filter data.

OperatorNameURL Encoded
!=Does not equal!%3D
>Greater Than%3E
<Less Than%3C
>=Greater than or equal to%3E%3D
<=Less than or equal to%3C%3D

Combine filters using OR and AND boolean logic:

  • AND takes precedence over OR in all expressions.

  • The OR operator is defined using a comma , or the OR keyword surrounded by whitespace.

  • The AND operator is defined using a semicolon ; or the AND keyword surrounded by whitespace.

​​ Analytics request structure

  • METRICS is one or more metrics (such as count) to compute
  • DIMENSIONS can be used to break down the data by given attributes
  • FILTERS used to filter rows by one or more dimensions (see Filters section below)
  • SORT is the sort order for the result set; sort fields must be included in METRICS or DIMENSIONS
  • TO_TS is that end of time interval to query, defaults to current time
  • FROM_TS is that start of time interval to query, defaults to TO_TS - 6 hours
  • STEP is used to select time series resolution when using endpoint:
  • auto or omitted - selects time step most appropriate to time interval
    • year
    • quarter
    • month
    • week
    • day
    • hour
