Filtering Internal Traffic on Rollup

mitchell_teixei 15-10-2015

I'd like to filter my internal traffic on a Rollup suite and leave my site's actual reporting suite without exclusions. Has anyone tried this and/or what observations do you have?  

How long does it take for these filters to take effect or are they immediate?   Such as if I need to add or remove IPs I want to exclude.

On this same topic, is the visitor's IP address available to s_code so that I can capture it and store it as an evar, traffic var?  I noticed that Processing Rules can take actions on traffic from recognized IPs.

 

Thanks for any info/ideas!

Mitchell,

You can actually set IP address to a variable via processing rule, so you don't even need to bother getting it into s_code.

I've recently pulled all internal IP exclusions out of our report suites, and have instead created an "internal IP address" segment that strips out those visits post-capture. For an additional level of nerdiness, I created a "visitOR" exclusion segment based on internal IPs, so I could also strip out visits from any employees who brought their computers home / accessed from the road, etc.

Awesome, thanks!

Thank you for the info.  As a matter of curiousity, was there a reason you didn't like the IP exclusion method either?
