Usage Trends

The Usage Trends page provides the ability to report on one or more features over a specified time frame while breaking the time frame into smaller segments, each with their own average and peak usage statistics.

For example, a report spanning a quarter can be broken down to also show the individual numbers of each month or each week. The report can also be pivoted, similar to the checkout statistics report, to show the usage per user, host, project, or custom group basis as well.

In this example, the table shows monthly usage, but it can also be set to hourly, weekly, monthly, semi-monthly and quarterly time frames. The advantage of this table is that you can see specifics on usage. In this case, the average and capacity in alignment, so no changes are necessary.

The supported time break down intervals are:
  • Quarterly
  • Monthly
  • Semi-monthly (first segment includes month days 1-15 and all remaining month days are placed into the second segment)
  • Biweekly (if report interval is for a month, the first segment will begin on the first day of the month)
  • Weekly (if report interval is for a month, the first segment will begin on the first day of the month)
  • Daily
  • Hourly
