Client Metrics

Client Metrics 2017-01-09T16:20:30+00:00

Web Robots data portal shows some metrics for each client. Many metrics are attributed to IDE usage or cloud instance usage. IDE (Integrated Development Environment, our Chrome Extension) usage means running robot’s on user’s desktop – developing, troubleshooting or performing complete runs on user’s desktop. Cloud usage metrics (‘srv’ in metric’s name) describe stats from runs where robots were launched on Web Robots cloud instances.

These metrics are:

  • robots_created – how many new robots were created in a period.
  • robots_executed – how many robots were executed in a period.
  • runs_ide_count – how many runs were performed in a period using IDE. A run is a single launch of any robot.
  • runs_ide_emits – how many emits all robots performed in a period. Counting only runs launched from IDE. Emit may contain one or more data rows.
  • runs_ide_hours – how many hours all runs took in a period, counting only runs from IDE.
  • runs_ide_mbytes – how many megabytes of data retrieved in a period, counting only runs from IDE.
  • runs_ide_rows – how many rows all robots retrieved in a period. Counting only runs launched from IDE. This metric shows number of data items retrieved (products, items, etc).
  • runs_srv_count – how many runs were performed in a period on cloud instances. A run is a single launch of any robot.
  • runs_srv_emits – how many emits all robots performed in a period. Counting only runs launched from cloud instances. Emit may contain one or more data rows.
  • runs_srv_hours – how many hours all runs took in a period, counting only runs from cloud instances.
  • runs_srv_mbytes – how many megabytes of data retrieved in a period, counting only runs from cloud instances.
  • runs_srv_rows – how many rows all robots retrieved in a period. Counting only runs launched from cloud. This metric shows number of data items retrieved (products, items, etc).
  • users_created – how many new users were created in a period.
  • users_had_runs – how many users did at least one robot run in a period. This is an important metric to determine how many users are active.
  • users_signed_in – how many users signed into a portal in a period. This metric has a slight drawback that it will not show users who used “remember password” functionality to stay signed in from a previous period.
