SharePoint Web Analytics Deep "Paper"

Written By: High Monkey
Posted: 5/22/2013

(From the mind of Peter Serzo, Previously VP of Consulting Services at High Monkey)

SharePoint 2010 Web Analytics is for lack of better wording, lacking.  How about - it is just not well documented in any sense.  Take a look over the web and the best resource I found was REALLY tough to find.

I was looking for deep dive information, how the data gets from Staging to Reporting databases, the timer jobs that make it go, and how to debug this beast.  In addition, I had to do a customization to we don't get the URL's displayed, but just the file names.

After finishing this process, I decided to put it together in a simple PDF for all to look at and understand.  One of the best things I found on web analytics came out of one of the forums.  Great answers lie in these repositories.  A gentleman detailed how he figured out what was wrong in step by step fashion.  I collected that also.

I hope this helps.  The paper has all the reference URLs plus the write ups that I found of value.
