Users: Browse Time By User

By default, a pie chart is displayed of the top five site categories browsed by the selected user. Each category section of the chart is shown as a percentage of the total time that the user was browsing during the selected time period. The text output shows the following:

  • A list of all of the categories in which the selected user browsed.
  • The total amount of time that they spent browsing in each category.
  • The total number of hits, or pages loaded, in each category.
  • The top five domains that they visited in each category.
  • The total time that they spent browsing in each of these top five domains.
  • The total number of hits in each of these top five domains.
Note Usernames are specified in the format DOMAIN\User in the text box to the right of the report. Alternatively, if Active Directory integration is not enabled, an IP address may be specified. Usernames for eDirectory are specified in the form user.context. This report may also be generated for a specified user by clicking the username in the Top Users By Browse Time report.

The available search parameters vary from one report to another. See “Modifying Reports” for a description of each parameter. Some URLs that you see in other reports are excluded from this report. The Browse Time By User report excludes some types of URLs that are typically called in the background and not initiated by the user. For instance, many advertising, certification, and image repository websites are excluded that show up on other usage reports.
