Search Analytics Dashboard – SearchStax

Site Search has replaced Analytics!

The SearchStax Site Search interactive environment is now the preferred path to analyze search-user behavior and to experiment with Solr tuning and display options. See the SearchStax Site Search Overview.

Our Analytics feature should be considered deprecated at this time.

SearchStax® includes search analytics reports that track the queries and search results of your deployment.

There are multiple pages of analytics displays, accessible through the Analytics App’s Dashboard:

This page describes the metrics on the Dashboard itself. For the other displays, see Usage Metrics, Relevance Metrics, and Response Time Metrics.
