New ‘map update frequency’ info June 29, 2006

Posted by ClustrMaps Team in News. comments closed

As a temporary measure, in order to ensure smooth and continuous operation of our servers during our current expansion phase, we have made an implementation change that is reflected in an FAQ about update frequency, and is duplicated immediately below:

In order for your map to be ‘updated’ (whether daily, weekly, or monthly) the number of visitors shown must also have grown by more than 20% since the last update. This does not mean that your grand (running) total needs to grow by this much, merely that the number shown on your currently-displayed map needs to grow by 20% (because smaller changes than that are often difficult to spot and not worth redrawing the map). Thus, if your current map shows, at the bottom, “Total number of visits depicted above = 1000″ and you are scheduled for a daily update, then the next update will be trigerred after at least 201 new visits are logged, i.e. 1 more than 20%. Logging (tallying) of visitors continues even when no updates are shown: the overnight tally from the previous day (updated just once daily at approximately 0400-0500 GMT) can be seen in your personal tables shown when you login using the Admin page. More details about the update intervals and archive policy are provide in our explanatory timeline.

We hope that we can restore the original 10% threshold as soon as possible, and provide even lower thresholds in the future (which would mean more frequent updates for everyone).
