The CSS console provides configurations for you to quickly implement basic features such as CSS domain name management, CSS stream management, transcoding and recording. In addition, it enables you to perform various operations such as web push, acceleration configuration, resource monitoring and log management.
Click Overview on the left sidebar, and you can view the relevant data such as yesterday's traffic fees, real-time data of live streaming, number of concurrent connections, and the trends in billable bandwidth and traffic in the last few days, switch the billing mode, or change the time granularity. You can click Beginner's Guide in the top-right corner to view the directions for getting started with CSS.
|Yesterday's traffic usage||It displays the fees incurred by the downstream traffic/bandwidth generated in yesterday's CSS playback. You can select daily traffic billing or daily bandwidth billing as the billing mode.|

It displays the downstream peak bandwidth, downstream traffic usage, and number of concurrent connections in CSS for today.
|Current downstream bandwidth||It displays the current downstream peak bandwidth generated by playback acceleration under all playback domain names.|
|Today's downstream traffic||It displays today's total downstream traffic generated by playback acceleration under all playback domain names.|
|Concurrent connections||If the playback protocol is RTMP or FLV, the number of concurrent connections is the number of online viewers. If the playback protocol is HLS, the number of concurrent connections dose not mean the number of online viewers.|
It mainly displays the CSS usage trends for today, yesterday, last 7 days, and last 30 days, including the "bandwidth trend" and "traffic trend".
|Bandwidth trend||It displays the total downstream peak bandwidth consumed by the acceleration service under all playback domain names in the queried time period.|
|Traffic trend||It displays the total downstream traffic consumed by the acceleration service under all playback domain names in the queried time period.|
The CSS console allows you to change the time granularity used when viewing the trends in billable bandwidth or traffic by clicking Time Granularity and selecting the desired option on the right.
