    SSAI Ad tracking log

    SSAI Ad tracking log is a new feature that looks to provide details of how SSAI ads are working. This feature is for VOD and Live.

    Introduction

    Brightcove provides ad tracking logs to help you understand how your SSAI-enabled live streams and videos are performing from a monetization perspective and also to troubleshoot any problems. These logs include the requests to the ad servers: ad requests, errors, and tracking events.

    The logs also allow you to calculate performance metrics:

    • Ad Requests: Number of times that an ad server was asked for an ad.
    • Ad Tracking Events fired: number of beacons events fired from BC SSAI server. It can be a breakdown per type: AdStart, AdComplete, AdfirstQuartile, Admidpoint, AdthirdQuartile, AdcreativeView
    • Ad Delivery Rate: the ratio of the total successful ad requests/total of ad requests

    Setup

    To enable SSAI ad tracking logs, you must do the following:

    1. Create an S3 bucket in your preferred region.
    2. Give Brightcove Support the name of your bucket and the region.
    3. Add the security policy provided to you by Support to enable Brightcove to write to your bucket.
    4. Once the S3 bucket has been set up, to start logging an ad config set ad_tracking_sample_percentage to your Live ad configuration and/or your VOD ad configuration.

    File format

    The log files will be organized on your S3 bucket according to this schema:

    /yyyy/MM/dd/HH/<random-string>/<delivery stream name>-<delivery stream version>-<year>-<month>-<day>-<hour>-<minute>-<second>-<uuid>

    <random-string> and </uuid>, will be different for each batch, and the logs are batched in 5MB or 300 seconds of data. Logs for different sessions and jobs will be intermixed in the batches.
