Item2306: WebStatistics calculates wrong numbers

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.6
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
Branches: Release01x01 trunk

When creating WebStatistic for a given month and there are log files from more current months it will sum up all values. The script simply does not stop and fetch all later log files in order to calculate the given month.

Just over the same issue. This issue is caused by using the EachEventSince function in So ".statistics -logdate 201001" could not work. A range has to be defined for getting it working properly.

Andre, I'm sorry, I just don't understand the report. What do you mean by "A range has to be defined for getting it working properly"? If you understand the issue, what fix do you propose?

-- CrawfordCurrie - 25 Jun 2010

A solution would be a new function which has a start and an end date. At the moment we only have EachEventSince which collects all date from a start date but will not stop until there are no logfiles left. In this way you cannot update statistics for a given period.

-- AndreUlrich - 25 Jun 2010

eachEventSince is an iterator, and you can stop an iterator whenever you want. All the called has to do is to inspect the event, and break the loop if it's out of range. No need for a new function.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 28 Jun 2010

Bumping this up, as it is still the case. I wanted to re-process statistics after a migration, and it is not possible, as the statistics code will simply sum up all values for the entire period. To be more specific, let's draw a table:
Month Real Views View in WebStatistics
01.2012 21 718
02.2012 121 697
03.2012 221 576
04.2012 321 355
05.2012 34 34
Total 718 %CALC{ "$SUM($ABOVE())" %}

Assuming this was done using: (simulated)
for i in 1 2 3 4 5;do ./statistics -logdate 20120$i; done

Might be easy to fix, as Crawford seems to imply.

-- OlivierRaginel - 14 May 2012

Should be fixed. My tests were successful. Andre, if you could test it and re-open if not working...
