[20:14] <tdonohue> DS-600: Add more information about File Downloads to Statistics Reports http://jira.dspace.org/jira/browse/DS-600
[20:14] <tdonohue> DS-600 is a feature request from Claudia -- though, based on mhwoods comments, we may need to rethink
[20:15] <tdonohue> (i.e. I think mhwood brings up a good point as to what we are really going for in these stats)
[20:15] <mdiggory> schedule for 1.7 and give to me
[20:15] <tdonohue> ok, DS-600: assign to mdiggory, schedule for 1.7 -- more discussion should happen on that issue as needed
> Add more information about File Downloads to Statistics Reports
> Key: DS-600
> URL: http://jira.dspace.org/jira/browse/DS-600
> Project: DSpace 1.x
> Issue Type: Improvement
> Components: Solr
> Affects Versions: 1.6.0, 1.6.1
> Reporter: Tim Donohue
> Assignee: Mark Diggory
> Fix For: 1.7.0
> This comes out of a conversation with Claudia Juergen on IRC.
> Currently, in 1.6.1, the following Stats are captured:
> Visits -- total views of Item splash page only
> Visits per Month
> File Downloads -- file download stats
> Top Country Visits
> Top City Visits
> The oddity in those reports is that most of the statistics only detail information about views of the Item splash page. As Google often provides users with direct links to download files, the stats report will sometimes end up looking very "odd" to normal users. As any example, here's a sample stats report from an item in Claudia's repository:
> Total Visits - 5
> File Downloads - 300
> This looks odd to many users -- why has this item only been visited 5 times, but downloaded 300 times? The reality is that many users jumped straight to downloading the file(s) as Google provided them with a direct link to the files. So, although these stats may be correct, they look odd as the numbers don't seem to total up properly.
> I'd propose we change the definitely of what a "Visit" means, so that these statistics make more sense overall. For example, redefining it as follows:
> Visit = Item Views + File Downloads (it would be also nice to potentially split out *how* many of the visits are Item Views, and how many come from File downloads)
> So, in that way, using the above example, you'd have a stats report more like:
> Total Visits - 305 (5 Item Views, 300 File Downloads)
> File Downloads - would still detail individual file downloads, totaling up to 300
> It'd also be nice to count File Downloads as part of the "Total Visits per month", "Top Country Visits", and "Top City Visits". That way all the totals would match up better, and you'd also have a better sense of where the files were being downloaded from (and how many downloads happened in the last month).
