Acquia Insight

Using Acquia Insight

Acquia Insight is a suite of tools that evaluates your website’s performance, security, and search engine optimization to help you monitor and optimize your websites. Insight uses the Acquia Connector module on your website to connect to the Acquia Insight service on a regular schedule, sending up-to-date information about the website’s code and configuration.

Acquia Insight scores for each environment’s active domain are displayed on your subscription’s Environments page.

About the Acquia Connector

Before you can use Acquia Insight, you must install and enable the latest stable release of Acquia Connector. The Acquia Connector module is a Drupal module suite enabling Drupal 8 and Drupal 7 websites to exchange information with the Acquia Insight service. It consists of the following modules:

  • Acquia Connector – Provides secure communication between your Drupal website and Acquia to monitor uptime, check for updates, and collect website information. For details about what information the Acquia Connector sends, see Sending information to Acquia Insight.
  • Acquia Search – (Drupal 7) Gets you started with Acquia Search, Acquia’s plug-and-play search service. The Acquia Insight module is divided into separate Acquia Agent and Acquia Site Profile Information modules.

Acquia’s Acquia Lightning distribution begins with the Acquia Connector modules already installed, enabling you to connect your website to Acquia Insight without installing any additional modules.
