Through the portal you can see analytics about your web traffic. You can also quickly add new properties and domains, change cache policy settings, and otherwise modify your delivery and performance configuration.

Analytics are shown relative to your local time by default (formerly, they were shown in UTC only). You can manually override this to use UTC or any other time zone, and that setting will be persisted across logins.
