Widget data aggregation and Chart view
Chart view for a "line graph" widget is limited on the number of data points that can be plotted. This limit affects the aggregation of the data revealed for certain reports.
How is aggregation affected?
The aggregation is affected by two factors:
- The widget size. There are two widget sizes:
- Half. Two half widgets sit side-by-side in the report's UI. This is the most limited in regards to points plotted.
- Full. The widget spans the full width of the report's UI. While limited, it is less so than a half widget.
- The range of time. The duration of time you set for report data output.
The table that follows shows the aggregation applied to a Chart, based on the two factors, above:
|Duration||Widget size (Half/Full)||Aggregation (in minutes)|
|Up to 1 day||Half||5|
|1 to 3 days||Half||15|
|3 to 6 days||Half||30|
|6 to 12 days||Half||60|
|12 days to 31 days||Half||1440 (daily)|
|Up to 2.5 days||Full||5|
|2.5 days to 8 days||Full||15|
|8 days to 16days||Full||30|
|16 to 31 days||Full||60|
|32 to 90 days||Full||1440 (daily)|
Which reports are affected?
Specifically, this applies to "Traffic," "Performance," and "Availability" related reports tabs. If it applies, it's called out in a separate section in that tab's topic (that refers back to this topic).
I need more granular data
Chart view offers a quick view and isn't intended to be all-inclusive. You can easily get more granular data by switching the widget to Table () view, or you can download report data as a CSV file.
