Display settings

The display of the results is determined by the following settings:

  • Interval - grain of the diagram - determines which time unit will be used to group the data.
  • Mode - display type:
    • Absolute - shows changes in data for the given period
    • Aggregate - shows running total for the data source choosen
    • List - shows data in tabular view - only avaiable for certain data sources

Note: Depending on the selected time period, the interval has to be set accordingly. For, example if you look for data between 02.06. and 03.06. for the same year, the interval setting "Year" will not return any data. Change the interval to "Week" or "Day" to return results.

Viewing the results

Once all the filters and options are set, click on the Results tab to show the resulting data.



In the Config manager, you can change the following settings:

  • Exclude these users: Some user groups, like WikiSysop can skew the statistics, for example the statistics for search queries or because they complete automated maintenance tasks. These types of user groups can be excluded from the statistical results.
  • Maximum number of interval steps: Sets the size of the x-axis for the results. For a few days, select the interval Day or Calendar Week, for periods over one year, select Year or Month. If you do not get any results for your query, try to adjust the interval accordingly.
