EMu has a Statistics facility

The Statistics facility allows statistical information to be generated on a regular basis (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) and stored in the Statistics module. System administrators and managers need only search the Statistics module to locate the information they require and then produce a report (Excel Pivot table) from which tables and graphs may be generated.

The Statistics facility consists of two parts:

  • Statistics Module
    The Statistics module contains records with computed statistical values. Each record contains one value, a floating point number, that represents the result of a statistical criteria. For example, a value of 10 may indicate the number of records inserted by user james into the Catalogue module on 17 February 2009. A standard EMu module interface is provided to the Statistics module:module.jpg
    An Excel report is supplied that presents the records in a Pivot table for further manipulation.
  • Periodic Tasks
    In order to provide useful statistical information it is necessary to have statistic records generated at regular intervals, removing the need for information to be obtained manually. The Periodic Tasks facility implements a framework in which individual tasks (scripts) can be placed and executed on a regular basis. It is the purpose of the tasks to generate statistical records by examining the various system reports and data within an EMu implementation. Periodic tasks can be run on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis. It is possible to add new periods (e.g. fortnightly) if required.
