Peer-to-Peer Activity Summary Report in Lync Server 2013

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-21

The Peer-to-Peer Activity Summary Report provides an overall view of your peer-to-peer communication sessions. A peer-to-peer session typically involves just two users, and does not require the use of the Lync Server conferencing services. By comparison, a conference typically involves more than two users and requires the use of Microsoft Lync Server 2013 conferencing services. Conference activity is reported on the Conference Summary Report.

The Peer-to-Peer Activity Summary Report helps you answer questions like the following:

  • How many peer-to-peer instant messages do my users send on a typical day?

  • Are any of my users actually taking advantage of the Lync Server application sharing and file transfer capabilities?

  • Users have been complaining that the network seems slow at certain times of the day. How many minutes are devoted to peer-to-peer audio and video sessions during those time periods?

You access the Peer-to-Peer Activity Summary Report from the Monitoring Reports home page. You open the Peer-to-Peer IM Report in Lync Server 2013 by clicking either of the following metrics:

  • Total peer-to-peer IM sessions

  • Total peer-to-peer IM messages

Likewise, you can open the Peer-to-Peer Voice and Video Report by clicking any of these metrics:

  • Total peer-to-peer audio sessions

  • Total peer-to-peer audio session minutes

  • Total peer-to-peer audio sessions

  • Total peer-to-peer audio session minutes

At the bottom of the Peer-to-Peer Activity Summary Report you'll find totals for metrics such as Total peer-to-peer IM sessions and Total peer-to-peer IM messages. This provides a quick summary of the detailed information found in the body of the report.

Filters provide a way for you to return a more finely targeted set of data or to view the returned data in different ways. For example, the Peer-to-Peer Activity Summary Report enables you to choose how data should be grouped. In this case, activity grouped by hour, day, week, or month.

The following table lists the filters that you can use with the Peer-to-Peer Activity Summary Report.

  • Monthly (a maximum of 12 months can be displayed)
