HTML Reports (Selecting Which Reports to Create)
This lets you view a list of all the reports that TrafficReport is able to produce. It also lets you select just the reports youd like TrafficReport to create. The reports are organized by category. To see the reports contained in a category, double-click the category name or click its expansion triangle.
Click on a report name to see a brief description of it in the Report Description pane. Each report has a check box next to it. TR will produce the reports that are checked and skip the ones that arent checked. You can enable or disable an entire category by clicking the categorys check box. Some of the reports can be adjusted to display as much or as little detail as youd like. For instance, you can set the Visitors report to display the top 10, top 50, or even top 1,000 visitors to your web site. To adjust a reports level of detail, click its Top number (or click the report name and hit the tab key). An edit field will appear around the number, allowing you to change it to whatever number youd like. It takes no more memory to report on the top 1,000 items than it takes to report on the top 10.
If a report does not have a number in the Top column then it is not adjustable. By default, TR is set to report on the Top 10 in adjustable reports. TR uses the raw information in your Logs to produce its reports. For a description of what kind of information is good to include in your Logs, see Appendix A. Some reports take more memory to produce than others. For estimates of how much memory the reports take, see the Reducing TRs Memory Needs section.
You can set the time lag that TR uses in defining when a new visit occurs. The default lag is 15 minutes. To change this, click the Set Visit Time Lag button. For more information about how TR uses this setting, see the Visits section.
