Setting SharePoint to Log Usage Analysis

The first step is to setup SharePoint to track the Usage Analysis Report.

The steps are as follows.

·         On your site, click Site Settings.

Figure 1

·         On Site Settings under the General Settings, click on Go to SharePoint Portal Server Central Administration.

·         On the SharePoint Portal Server Central Administration page under Component Configuration, click on Configure Usage Analysis Processing.

Figure 2

·         The configure Usage Analysis Screen is displayed.

Figure 3

·         Administrators can set the following settings on this screen.

·         Enable Logging - This should be checked if you want to use the Usage Analysis Report.  Log files are created daily on the server.  These log files track the Usage information.

·         Log File Location - Where the Log files need to be stored.  By default it is stored under c:\%windir%\system32\LogFiles\STS.  Under this folder are contained folders for each virtual server and under these folders are folders for each day.  Administrators can change this location path to something else.  If you choose to change this path to some other folder make sure that STS_WPG group has Read, Write and Update permissions to the site.

·         Time for Processing the Usage Logs - Generally, you should schedule the time for processing the logs when the usage of the site is at a minimum.  In the intranet world it would make sense to process the Usage Logs at night when the site is not being used much by employees.  By default, the time is set to 1 am to 2 am.

·         Make the necessary changes on this screen and click ok.

With the above administration process, you have just setup the Website to track the Usage Analysis for SharePoint Sites.

I recommend using CardioLog for tracking SharePoint Usage data. With CardioLog, not only will you be able to determine the most used pages, the least used pages, but you will also have in-depth insight into portal growth, portal visitors, portal navigation and search. They have a free 30 day Enterprise trial so you can test out the product before buying.

Hi,

This article was of a great help to me. This could have been even better if you could tell how to keep track of User-Website-Number of Hits. Yes this covers User and Number of Hits, but leaves blank which website was browsed.

How can I customize the site usage report. For an example if I wish to show the username instead of userid in usage report?
Title: More interesting and needed report

It would be interesting to have a report that shows data all over the portal, i.e. it is interesting to know what pages are the most visited in the whole portal.
