The functionality described in this article is in the Limited Testing phase of release and might not be available yet in your environment. This note will be removed when the functionality is generally available. For information about the Analytics release process, see Adobe Analytics feature releases.
The Reporting Activity Manager lets you see the reporting capacity for each report suite in your organization. It provides you, as an Admin, with detailed visibility into reporting consumption and helps you easily diagnose and fix capacity issues during peak reporting times.
When your organization reaches reporting request capacity and experiences a degradation in reporting performance, you now have a way to self-diagnose reporting issues without intervention from Adobe customer care or engineering. You can easily manage reporting queues within a single interface and immediately act to improve your users’ experience. This tool:
In Adobe Analytics, Admins go to Admin > Reporting Activity Manager.
You require the Analytics Product Administrator permission (in Adobe Admin Console) to manage reporting activity.
When opening the Reporting Activity Manager overview page, you see a list of your enabled base report suites.
|Report Suite||The base report suite whose reporting activity you are monitoring.|
|Virtual Report Suite||Shows all virtual report suites that feed into this base report suite. Virtual report suites add complexity to reporting requests due to additional levels of applied filtering and segmentation. All requests that are coming from the virtual report suites are combined and come down to the base report suite.
For example, f you have 10 requests coming from 5 VRSs, that’s 50 requests at the base level report suite. This way, you can very quickly hit capacity.
|Usage Capacity||Percentage wise, how much of the report suite’s reporting capacity is being used, in real time.|
|Status||Four possible status indicators:
Click the title link of a report suite for which you want to view details.
The line graph shows the reporting activity for the selected report suite over the last 2 hours.
The x-axis shows the reporting capacity data over the last 2 hours.
The y-axis shows the reporting usage capacity % for the selected report suite, by minute.
You can hover over the line chart to view points in time where the usage capacity % represented will be the highest % for that minute.
You can filter the table by Application (see list in the table below), by User, and by Project.
The Summary Numbers show the following information:
|Users||The number of users that are currently sending reporting requests to this report suite.|
|Projects||Workspace projects, Report Builder workbooks, etc.|
|Queries||The number of queries currently running.|
|Average Wait Time||The average wait time for all running queries.|
|Usage Capacity||The current usage capacity for this report suite.|
The detailed table below shows details on the report suite.
|Query ID||Can be used for troubleshooting purposes.|
|Running Time||How long the query has been running.|
|Wait Time||How long the query has been waiting before being processed. Generally at “0” when there is enough capacity.|
|Start Time||When the query started processing (Admin’s local time).|
|Application||The applications supported by the Reporting Activity Manager are:
|User||The user who initiated the query.|
|Project||Saved Workspace project names, API Report ID’s, etc. (Metadata can vary across various applications.)|
|Month Boundaries||How many monthly boundaries a request crosses. This adds to the complexity of the request.|
|Columns||The number of metrics and breakdowns in Workspace to gauge the complexity of the request.|
|Segments||How many segments are applied to this request. This adds to the complexity of the request.|
To cancel a request
Check the box to the left of one or more Query ID in the table and click Cancel requests at the bottom.
You can also cancel requests in bulk by viewing details by User, Project, or Application. Subsequent requests for a project, user or application that were not in queue or running at time of cancellation may still appear when activity is refreshed.
In the Cancel x query window that appears, you can modify the cancellation message, if needed.
Application users in Workspace, for example, will see the following notice appear in their projects:
|Can I purchase additional reporting capacity?||This capability will be available in the near future.|
