What is the background logic to calculate the Top UsedAsset?

iRAM Administrator (3152156135) | asked Dec 27 '11, 8:00 a.m.
One of the iRAM user and design engineer is developing a tool that have similar reporting functionality like iRAM i.e. Top Used Assets and Top Viewed Assets (iRAM Community from Statistics tab), however he is facing discrepancy while arriving at the count.

What is the background logic to calculate the Top Used Assets count and Top Viewed Assets? Could you provide us the algorithm to calculate those numbers

There is no magic there .. the question is really what constitutes a Top Asset - which really depends on the type of asset it is.

The RAM Server keeps activity (RAMAssetActivity) for when an asset's detail information is accessed, when the asset is downloaded as a whole, or when an artifact was downloaded.


Once you determine which metrics you want to use (information, artifact, whole asset ... or all of them), you may need to determine for unique access (e.g., for artifacts, a users may click on 5 or them from a single asset withing short amount of time ... we typically consider these as a single access)

... so you do a report on the activities, and you can farther determine how to count them from the activity's timestamp, user, and details.

Thank you for your reply.

It would be great help to us, if you give detail explanation of usage calculation of real data :-

There is NO metric code for collect the Asset Usage count.

Below Asset shows
download count is: 34
Artifact Browsed count is: 70
But Asset Usage count shows in iRAM WEB UI is: 83{02AFFD3C-84B2-C3F6-C52E-ED6E6EEC7430}&v=1.0

Can iRAM users collect Asset Usage count from iRAM API?

If yes, then how iRAM Users can calculate this Asset Usage Count using iRAM API with help of RAMAssetActivity object?
