Understanding Targit log data ?


We are logging our use of Targit by using this back-end possibility in Management.

The log data is then loaded in a cube in Targit.

When I select log data for a specific analysis that is only using data and criteria etc from 1 specific cube "SØD Tæl skridt" I can see that sometimes, some days for some users it logs the analysis with different cubes.

Why can that be?

I have checked the analysis - all objects, criterias, deleted objects but no other cubes are used. I have also checked the xml file of the analysis and seached for the shown other cubes in the log, but with no result.

Any good ideas?

The problem is that we use the data for statistics about our use of Targit (the number of users, use of cubes and analyses over time etc). And there are more examples like this. And this will give us inaccurate numbers of use. Specificly it will show that old cubes are used often even if nobody actually uses them anymore. 

So how can a specific analysis that are based on only one specific cube (SØD TÆL skridt) normally only log the correct cube, but sometimes suddenly log a lot of other cubes (still with the specific analysis)??

  • Hi Louise,

    I think what you are seeing, is due to 'mistaken user behavior'.

    If a user opens the 'Tæl skridt - Overblik' document and then starts adding new objects (from another cube) to this document - these new objects will be logged as being part of that document. Even if the user realizes his/her mistake and does not save the document when closing it.

    I sometimes see this behavior in my classrooms: A user is asked to create a new dashboard. Instead of clicking 'New', the user starts deleting all the objects from the current dashboard in order to insert the new objects (potentially from a different cube). As soon as the user 'fetch data' from the new objects, these will then be logged as being part of the still open dashboard.
