AnswerOne of the improvements in GFI WebMonitor 2012 is that the Surf Time calculations are much more accurate.
However, because the calculations involved are very time consuming, CPU and Disk intensive, and could cause the display to take a long time to return the results, we have limited the results to only Users, not Categories or Web Sites.
Therefore, you will notice the following differences between WebMonitor 2011 and WebMonitor 2012:
- When viewing 'Surf Time' in the Dashboard > Activity Monitoring screens and in the reports, Surf Time is only available by Users, not by Websites or Categories
- The Dashboard > Activity Monitoring screen in the WebMonitor console displays '0 mins' for the 'Surf Time' for all users when 'Today' is selected as the date range. This is because 'Surf Time' is calculated only on a daily basis and is totaled at 11:00 PM (23:00) daily.
- 'Surf Time' totals for other date ranges do not include the current day for the same reason as above
