As we all know data is everything in optimizing and improving web pages. Until last week Impera lacked the functionality to display data over time. Even though we were able to show some snapshots of certain metrics (in German):
there was no continuous tracking and measuring enabled. On Friday I finally wrote some background scripts which save certain metrics at fixed time intervals. These can then be displayed using the amazing jQuery flot graph library as beautifully formatted graphs over time. Here you can see the average number of online players per hour (GMT+1 timezone and mostly German users from GMT+1):
I think the results are as expected with a peak during the day and a valley after 2 a.m. However, this data is only aggregated over a timespan of two and a half days. I expect the following graph to be more of interest when a few weeks of data have been captured:
Even with this little data it can be inferred, that Impera players get up earlier on Mondays than on weekends (what a surprise!).
There are a few other graphs available but more data is needed for them to be of any interest.
