What is CDN Provisioning?
CDN Provisioning helps our users to automatically route to the fastest CDN provider in their region. This tool can assist users with speed, reduced latency, and SEO with their domain. It can automatically make the decision by using synthetic monitoring or community data to see which CDN is the fastest. It works with regional monitoring so that we can ensure that your customers get the fastest response times within their network.
Note: Please make sure you commit changes to enable Global Traffic Director (GTD) and GeoIP services.

5. View of CDN records
Users will see the Multi-CDN configuration within each GTD region and when hovering over the pool in the DNS application users will see all of the CDN providers within the regional pool. We will also automatically create pools and sonar checks for the Multi-CDN configuration. Pools are being monitored by our ITO and Sonar feature. You can configure your pools by navigating to Managed DNS> ANAME / CNAME Record Pools.
Sonar is used to monitor the health of the CDN providers and let our users know which check/CDN provider has the fastest speeds. You can view this information within the ANAME/CNAME record pools and Sonar application.
