Detail reports give you a tabular view of the information in the Log Database. Access the detail report view from the main page after viewing a summary report for which you want more detail.
You can request a detail view from any row. However, when requesting a detail report based on hits, it is best to start from a row that shows fewer than 100,000 hits. If there are more than 100,000 hits for a particular row, the hits value displays in red to alert you that a detail report may be slow to generate.
Detail report view is considered flexible because it lets you design your own report. You can add or delete columns of information, and change the order of the columns displayed. The information is sorted according to order of the columns. You can even reverse the sort order within any column from ascending to descending, or vice versa.
Investigative reports are limited by the processor and available memory of the management server, as well as some network resources. Requests for large reports may time out. When you request a large report, you are given options for generating the report without timeouts.

When generating a report on hits, it is best to drill down to an entry that shows fewer than 100,000 hits before opening the detail report view.

A popup message shows progress while the detail report loads.

The default columns vary, depending on whether you are reporting on hits, bandwidth, or browse time, and on the selections made on the Options page. (See Database connection and report defaults.)
5.
Click Modify Report at the top of the page.
The Current Report list in the Modify Report dialog box shows which columns appear in the current detail report.

Select a column name in the Available Columns or Current Report list, and click the right arrow (>) or left arrow (<) buttons to move that column to the other list.
Choose a maximum of 7 columns for the report. The column showing the measure (hits, bandwidth, browse time) from the initial summary report always appears as the right-most column. It does not appear as a choice when modifying the report.
See Columns for flexible detail investigative reports for a list of the columns available, and a description of each.

Select a column name in the Current Report list and use the up and down arrow buttons to change the order of the columns.
The column at the top of the Current Report list becomes the left column in the report.
