Site Factory

Managing subscription usage

The Subscription Usage page in the Site Factory Management Console displays how many websites and site collections in your Site Factory subscription already have custom domain names assigned to them. If your Site Factory subscription has a limited number of websites, this page will display the number of websites with custom domains on your production and update environments, which are the websites that count against your subscription’s maximum number of websites limit. It also displays the number of Dynamic Requests served by each Site Factory stack per month.

To view the Subscription Usage page:

  1. Sign in to the Site Factory Management Console using an account with the platform admin role.

  2. In the admin menu, click Administration.

  3. In the Site Factory Management section, click the Subscription Usage link.

Viewing Dynamic Requests

The Dynamic requests section on the Subscription Usage page displays the number of Dynamic Requests served by each Site Factory Stack during each month. Dynamic Request data is available with up to a two-day delay.

Dynamic Requests was earlier referred to as Page Views. One Dynamic Request is equivalent to one Page View. Therefore, if an order form mentions Page Views, Acquia measures it by utilizing Dynamic Requests.

For this purpose, Dynamic Requests include all requests served by Drupal, including:

  • successful page loads

  • redirections

  • image derivative generations

  • page not founds

  • failed page loads

Dynamic Requests do not include:

  • requests served from Varnish® cache or a CDN

  • requests for images, files, and other assets which are served directly without additional processing (such as resizing)

  • cron runs (although these will be included in the future)

Downloading Dynamic Request reports

Click the CSV button to download Dynamic Request reports in CSV format. The downloaded report includes all of the time periods currently displayed on the Subscription Usage page. By default, the name of the downloaded file is dynamic-requests.csv.

Using the REST API to obtain Dynamic Request reports

The Site Factory REST API includes a Dynamic Requests method (GET /api/v1/dynamic-requests/monthly) that you can use to obtain additional, detailed Dynamic Request reports.
