To send Akamai KONA events to JSA, complete the following steps:


This integration requires you to open a non-standard port in your firewall for incoming Akamai connections. Use an internal proxy to route the incoming Akamai connections. Do not point the Akamai data stream directly to the JSA console. For more information about opening a non-standard port in your firewall, consult your network security professionals.

  1. If automatic updates are not enabled, download and install the most recent versions of the following RPMs on your JSA console:

    • DSMCommon RPM

    • HTTPReceiver Protocol RPM

    • Akamai KONA RPM

  2. For each instance of Akamai KONA, configure your Akamai KONA system to communicate with JSA. For more information, contact Akamai.

  3. If you plan to configure the log source to use the HTTPs and Client Authentication options, copy the Akamai KONA certificate to the target JSA Event Collector.

  4. For each Akamai KONA server that you want to integrate, create a log source on the JSA console. Configure all the required parameters. Use this table to configure Akamai Kona specific parameters:
