To make this analysis possible a simple pivot is used. This pivot can show things like:
- location from where the download was started through fields like country, city, ip.
- artifact that was downloaded through fields like product, file, version
- time when the download was done through a date field
A simple selection that shows the number of downloads for every artifact is like this:
Report used by pivot also has parameters which allows to filter data. For example it is easy to select a period of time between to dates, country, product, version:
Results will show more than simple statistics. It is easy to spot attacks of Denial Of Service type if a large number of downloads is seen from the same ip:
Also it is possible to know how many downloads are done in a period of time, seeing totals for product or for artifact:
This is just an example when NextReports pivot can be really useful to make analysis and get a lot of answers from raw data.
