I am new in Akamai, sorry if this questions some kind of repost.

Currently my company use Akamai service (DSA Secure) and we have some TB quota. I saw the traffic report from Luna portal, and it showed the usage which is very high. I am curious, does my website really consumed that big amount of traffic?


So I search at the internet, how Akamai calculates traffic. So far, it explained me that Akamai sums all traffic from all over its edge which end user try to hit our website address. There's also named as midgress server which serve edge server, in situation where edge doesn't have cache for page requested from end user.


So my questions is:

1. How does akamai calculates traffic?

2. Is traffic from midgress server also count?


thank you
