I’m trying to analyse my company’s Looker usage (~100 people), and the History explore has had a treasure trove of information. We don’t have an intense data-culture, so I’m just actually trying to find the few super-users, so I can reach out to them. In the meantime, I don’t expect very high usage-counts.
So when I see the “Query Run Count” hitting tens of thousands in the timespan of a few weeks, I’m kind of confused.
How is this measure counted?
- If someone clicks “Run” in an explore, does that make their count +1?
- If someone clicks “Run” in a merged query, does that make their count +1?
- If someone opens a dashboard (that’s not cached) with multiple tiles, is it +1 for each tile?
Also, some people have query-counts at ridiculous hours of the day (e.g. 3am) that I imagine some automated processes are going on that are incrementing these counters?
No one uses embedded content though, or anything like that. Our Looker usage is pretty limited to making a couple dashboards, and maybe 4 or 5 people have scheduled some stuff.
