Statistics Page

You can enable statistics to interpret and analyze system and server performance and disable them when you no longer need to monitor performance. From the Statistics page, you can determine if and what statistical information is displayed at the bottom of each page in MicroStrategy Web or within a text file.

The following statistics can be displayed and used as a source for analyzing statistical information about Web.

  • The time taken by Web Server and Intelligence Server to process an operation

  • The time taken by the Web Server and Intelligence Server to complete an operation

  • The waiting time to receive some data from the Intelligence Server

  • How much data is received and sent

This information can be used as a source for analyzing statistical information about Web. Refer to the Warnings section below for important information about logging statistics for multiple users and to a text file.

Warnings

  • If multiple users work on the same server, displaying statistics for each of them is not recommended as it may impact system performance.

  • If the statistics are being saved in the file, the file size grows quickly, which is unnecessary. For this reason, this feature should not be used under normal circumstances. This feature is useful only when the system is not working properly and you want to analyze the data for system tuning or troubleshooting.

Accessing the Statistics preferences page

  1. Access the MicroStrategy Web Administrator page. (How?)

  2. From the pane on the left, select Statistics. The Statistics page opens.
