FAQ

Is the data Sampled?

No, Analytics takes into account all the data it is sent, unless it has an incorrect format.

What is the latency between a log sent and its representation in the charts?

The normal latency is a few seconds. It may be longer on occasions though

What is the precision of the displayed numbers?

The error margin of the numbers displayed is under 1%

Why are some charts such as “OS Distribution” for example showing more devices than the total number of installed app?

The distributions are not snapshots, they are counts of devices that match the metric displayed within the time-range. For example in “OS Distributions” if users upgrade massively from one version to the next within the represented time-range, they will be counted in both versions.

What is the maximum number of event properties that I can define per event? What happens if I send more than the limit?

The maximum number of event properties is currently set to five. If more than five properties are sent, they are automatically rejected.

What is the maximum number of property values that I can send per event?

There is no limit on the number of property values that you can send. However, you will see the five values with highest count.

What is the maximum number of distinct events that can be sent per app?

You will be able to send 200 events with distinct names. However, there is no limit on the maximum number of events instances sent per device.
