Streaming and Chat Sites Reports


 

The Streaming and Chat Sites Reports section includes reports on streaming and chat sites visited. In order to identify your external hosts, you need to first configure your intranets by clicking the Intranet Settings link from the Settings tab. When configured, all hosts outside your configured intranets will be considered as external hosts.

 

On the top right side of the Report screen, there will be three combo boxes. They are:

  • Top 5
  • Filter by
  • Export as

Top 5

 

The Top 5 combo box lets you choose the level of detail in the reports. By default, the top five values are shown. To show more than 15 values, the report uses only tables. There is an option to display the Graph only.

  • Top 5 (graph & table)
  • Top 10 (graph & table)
  • Top 15 (table only)
  • Top 20 (table only)
  • Top 25 (table only)
  • Graph only

Below each graph click the Hide Table link to hide the table. Click the Show Table link to see the table again.
