Report Settings

System administrators can use this section to specify general settings for SmarterStats reports. To access this section, click the settings icon and then click Report Settings in the navigation pane. The report settings will load in the content pane and the following tabs will be available:

Options

Use this tab to specify the following options:

  • Standard Report Limit - The maximum number of days for which users can retrieve statistics on standard reports.
  • Custom Report Limit - The maximum number of days for which users can retrieve statistics for on custom reports. Note: This option is only available in SmarterStats Enterprise.
  • Max Items Per Report - Limits the number of report items that can be added to one custom report. Note: This option is only available in SmarterStats Enterprise.

DNS Resolution

Use this tab to specify the following options:

  • DNS Threads - Depending on your computer's hardware configuration, it may be beneficial to raise or lower how much processing it does by changing the maximum number of IP addresses it resolves at one time. The default value of 100 will work for most servers.
  • Max Lookups per Report - Allows you to set a limit on the number of resolved IP addresses that are returned when an user checks the Resolve IPs option in their settings. The higher the number of resolved IP addresses you allow, the longer those report items will take to display, which also results in a higher load on your server.

Email

Use this tab to specify the following email options:

  • Processing Interval - Scheduled email reports are processed in loops. When processing email reports, SmarterStats reviews each site and sends the appropriate scheduled email report. The processing interval is the wait time between loops. For example, if the processing interval is set to 2 hours, SmarterStats will wait 2 hours before reviewing each site and sending additional scheduled reports that need emailed to its recipients.
  • Sleep Between Reports - The wait time after sending a scheduled email report. For example, if a site has multiple scheduled email reports that need delivered, SmarterStats will wait the amount of time specified by this setting before sending the next report.
  • Enable admin error emails - Check this box to allow SmarterStats to send an email to the system administrator when an error occurs.
