Widget data aggregation and Chart view

Chart view for a "line graph" widget is limited on the number of data points that can be plotted. This limit affects the aggregation of the data revealed for certain reports.

How is aggregation affected?

The aggregation is affected by two factors:

  • The widget size. There are two widget sizes:

  • Half. Two half widgets sit side-by-side in the report's UI. This is the most limited in regards to points plotted.

  • Full. The widget spans the full width of the report's UI. While limited, it is less so than a half widget.

  • The range of time. The duration of time you set for report data output.

The table that follows shows the aggregation applied to a Chart, based on the two factors, above:

DurationWidget size (Half/Full)Aggregation (in minutes)
Up to 1 dayHalf5
1 to 3 daysHalf15
3 to 6 daysHalf30
6 to 12 daysHalf60
12 days to 31 daysHalf1440 (daily)
Up to 2.5 daysFull5
2.5 days to 8 daysFull15
8 days to 16daysFull30
16 to 31 daysFull60
32 to 90 daysFull1440 (daily)

Which reports are affected?

Specifically, this applies to "Traffic," "Performance," and "Availability" related reports tabs. If it applies, it's called out in a separate section in that tab's topic (that refers back to this topic).


This only applies to widgets that display line graph charts. (It does not apply to bar graphs.)

I need more granular data

Chart view offers a quick view and isn't intended to be all-inclusive. You can easily get more granular data by switching the widget to Table (IMAGE_STUB) view, or you can download report data as a CSV file.
