New Usage Visualization and Analysis Service enables staff to better understand component usage trends

May 3, 2022

The XCI team has introduced a new Usage Visualization and Analysis Service based on the Grafana software that enables XSEDE staff to view important usage metrics for 12 instrumented components, including CILogon, Globus Auth, Globus Transfer, SSO Hub, RDR, Research Software Portal, XDCDB APIs, Information Services APIs, and software downloads. Some of the important usage metrics include: number of times components were accessed, which users accessed components, distinct users per time period, and which clients accessed components. For the Globus Transfer service we have ~10 years of XSEDE usage data, while for most other components we have ~4 years worth of usage data.
