Metrics - FAQ
Where can I find metrics on my bidder's performance
Metrics are available for your bidder as part of the bidder ui (http://bidder.adnxs.net). Please use your bidder authentication credentials to access the UI.
What do the following metrics mean
Bid requests available
This is the total number of requests that come into the AppNexus platform. It is not the number of requests that meet your particular profile - it is all of the requests that, if you have no profile, you would be eligible to receive.
Bid requests sent
This is not actually the number of requests that are sent to your bidder. It is the number of number of requests that are actually sent to your bidder minus the number of aborted bids. The following shows an example of an aborted bid on a given connection - since only one bid request can be out on a given connection at a time:
Time 0 ms: bid request 1 sent to your bidder
Time 1 ms: bid request 2 queued
Time 1.5 ms: bid request 3 queued
Time 99: bid response 1 received
Time 100: bid request 2 sent
Time 102: bid request 3 aborted because it timed out before the request was sent.
Accessing the raw data for Metrics
For each graph in the Metrics section, you can download a text file with the raw data.
On the upper right corner of each graph, there is a button called 'Export Raw Data'. When this button is clicked, you will be prompted to save a file. This file will contain all the data points in the graph.
