CARMA Stats Admin
The CARMA Stats Admin provides clients with detailed breakdowns of various statistics regarding sites, members, content, and actors found in their CARMA install. The tabs at the top of the page allow you to switch between detailed statistics for Sites, Members, Content, and Actors, and the clickable links on each page bring you to an in-depth view of that link's statistics.
Site Statistics is the first page you will see when you open the CARMA Stats Admin. Site Statistics displays stats based on what site these stats are tracked from. This view provides a breakdown of Content Stats by site, Member Views by site, and Member's Ratings by site, with a variety of statistics for each of the categories.
The Member's Stats page provides a list of various statistics regarding members and member actions that have been taken on your sites. This allows you to analyze your members' actions, content set ratings, and page views. To see the Member's Stats page, click the "Members" tab at the top of the Stats Admin page.
Clicking the "Content" tab at the top of the Stats Admin pages will bring you to the "Content Stats" page, which provides a breakdown of content hosted on your sites, as well as relevant statistics for those content sets. This is useful for analyzing which content is most popular amongst members, as well as which content has the highest ratings from your members.
The "Actor's Stats" page provides a information and statistics on individual actors found in your CARMA database. This allows you to analyze which actor is rated highest by your members, as well as seeing which actor has been viewed the most times (in your content sets) by your members. To access the "Actor's Stats" page, click the "Actors" tab at the top of any Stats Admin page.
Getting XML/CSV Dumps
As of CARMA version 220.127.116.11, clients will be able to easily retrieve dumps of database statistics in both XML and CSV, which are simply languages that organize database information. By using this feature, you can easily export your statistics to Excel, or any software that handles XML or CSV dumps.
To get statistics dumps for your CARMA install, go to the Stats Admin, and click either the "XML Dump" or "CSV Dump" tab at the top of the page. This will bring you to a plain text view of the XML or CSV dump of the current stats display, which you can then import to a program that handles these dumps.
