You can generate both presentation and investigative reports based on Internet browse time (IBT), the amount of time an individual spent accessing Web sites. No software program can tell the exact amount of time that someone spends actually viewing a particular site once it is open. Someone might open a site, view it for a few seconds, and then take a business call before requesting another site. Someone else might spend several minutes reading each site in detail before moving on to the next one.
Websense software includes a Log Database job to calculate the Internet browse time (IBT), using a formula based on certain configurable values. This job runs once a day, so browse time information can lag the actual log data.
For browse time calculations, an Internet session begins when a user opens a browser. It continues as long as that user requests additional Web sites at least every 3 minutes. (This default read time threshold is configurable.)
The Internet session ends when more than 3 minutes pass before the user requests another site. Websense software calculates the total time of the session, starting with the time of the first request and ending 3 minutes after the last request.
A new session begins if the user makes additional requests after more than 3 minutes.Commonly, a user's browse time consists of multiple sessions each day.
See Database jobs and Configuring Internet browse time options for information about the Internet browse time job and the associated configuration options.
