Usage Summary Table

The summary table shows monthly usage statistics for each of the following variables:

Variable   Description



Number of successful logons (connections) to ISI Essential Science Indicators.


A query is recorded when a user clicks Search or Go.

At the bottom of the table are two rows showing:

Total Use   Sum of the numbers in each column. This is the total use for the month.

Average Use   Average number (arithmetic mean) for the numbers in the columns. This is the average use for the month.

If you selected the option to Include IP Addresses and Token IDs on the select a report page, then the table will have an additional column with this heading: IP Address/Token ID. To the right of the IP Address or Token ID in the same row are usage statistics for that identifier. The date of usage is in the row above and to the left of the identifier.

For example, this report shows that on January 1, 2003, the person(s) using a computer whose IP address is 123.45.678 submitted 60 queries to ISI Essential Science Indicators:
