In the Adobe Experience Platform user interface, you can view and monitor the attributes and activities of your destinations. These details include the destination’s name and ID, controls to activate or disable the destinations, and more. Details also include metrics for activated profile records, identities activated, failed, and excluded, and a history of dataflow runs.


The destinations details page is part of the Destinations workspace in the Platform UI. See the Destinations workspace overview for more information.

Dataflow runs duration

There is a difference in the displayed duration of dataflow runs between streaming and file-based destinations.

Streaming destinations

While the Processing duration indicated for most streaming dataflow runs is about four hours, as shown in the image below, the actual processing time for any dataflow run is much shorter. Dataflow run windows stay open for longer in the event that Experience Platform needs to retry making calls to the destination and also ensure to ensure it does not miss out on any late arriving data for same time window.

For more information, read about dataflow runs to streaming destinations in the monitoring documentation.

File-based destinations

For dataflow runs to file-based destinations, the Processing duration depends on the size of the data being exported and the system load. Notice also that the dataflow runs to file-based destinations are broken down per audience.

For more information, read about dataflow runs to batch (file-based) destinations in the monitoring documentation.
