Filters, breakdowns, and data point granularity

To narrow down the data in all of the charts, click the Filters button. You can use any of the following filters (or combinations of them):

  • Model
  • Channel
  • Build Name
  • Build Tag
  • Build ID
  • OS Version
  • Country

To select a date range for the data, select the start or end date from the date field boxes.

Each chart contains a Breakdown menu. This menu is enabled if there is only one product model being displayed on given chart. Select a breakdown to see how the data is distributed among the following:

  • Build ID
  • OS Version
  • Country
  • Channel
  • Error code (for update errors only)
  • Error metric name (for update errors only)

Charts for update metrics contain buttons to change the granularity of the data points (Every minute, Hourly, Daily). These data points are subject to the following retention policy:

  • Every minute - kept for the previous day
  • Hourly - kept for the previous 14 days
  • Daily - kept for the previous 90 days
