Policy & Content: Categories

By default, a pie chart and data table of the categories of URLs allowed—as a proportion of the total number of allowed visits—today since midnight. The data table also shows the total number of bytes viewed or downloaded for each category.

Visits displays a count of page loads or Download files, while Bytes displays the total bytes of any downloads, so it is possible to have a positive value for Bytes while the value for Visits is zero. For example, if you download just a graphic file, it doesn't count as a page load or a Download file, but the bytes downloaded are recorded and shown in this report.

You can sort the results according to site visits or the number of bytes consumed. The available search parameters vary from one report to another. See “Modifying Reports” for a description of each parameter.
