Users: Top Users By Browse Time

By default, a pie chart is displayed of the top five users by browse time, plus all others. Each user section of the chart is shown as a percentage of the total time that all users spent browsing within the specified time period. The text output shows the following:

  • A list of the top 25 users by time spent browsing web pages. If your web appliance is configured to access a single-domain Active Directory server, only the username of each user is displayed; if the web appliance is configured to access the global catalog of a multidomain Active Directory forest, users are displayed in the form "domain\username". Usernames for eDirectory are specified in the form user.context.
  • The total amount of time that users spent browsing during the specified time period.
  • The top five categories of sites that they visited and the time that they spent browsing in each of these top five site categories.

Click on a username link to view a more detailed browse time report for that user. Clicking a username generates the Report > Browse Time By User report filtered for the username that you clicked on and the time period that you are currently viewing.

The Top Users By Browse Time report excludes some categories 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.

The available search parameters vary from one report to another. See “Modifying Reports” for a description of each parameter.
