Amazon CloudFront presents new 7 data fields in access logs

Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) service which safely provides data, videos, applications, and APIs to users across world with low latency, great delivery pace. Amazon CloudFront is merged with AWS – both physical locations that are straight linked to the AWS global infrastructure, and also other AWS services. CloudFront boosts the delivery of your content by directing all user requests via the AWS backbone network to the edge location which can perfectly work for your content. CloudFront can be used to configure to produce log files that include comprehensive data about each user request that CloudFront gets. These access logs are accessible for both web and RTMP delivery. If you activate logging, you can also define the Amazon S3 bucket which you require CloudFront to store files in. Now, extra 7 data fields will add in your CloudFront access logs to better visibility into the distribution of your content. For example, with the x-edge-detailed-result-type field you can spot the particular type of error and with the sc-range-start/sc-range-end fields you can determine the requested range details. These new fields are included to the end of each log entry to keep backwards-compatibility with the previous log file format. To read about these new 7 data fields in access logs, refer Web Distribution Log File Format in the CloudFront documentation. Allowing access logs require zero cost, but standard S3 charges exert for maintaining the log files.
