Hello!

You can get the total server calls with the metric Occurrences : it's the sum of the page views AND the custom links AND the exit links instances AND the download links instances.

be careful! as far as i know this works only for props not evars! if you want to know the server calls where an evar is set, you should take "[evarxy] instances"

this is due to the reason that most evars persist longer than 1 hit and therefore you have an "occurrency" on the next hit even the evar is not set ...

Thanks for the tip!
I assumed this since my calculated metric Total Server Calls ( which is the sum of all that ) was always equal to Occurences.

Which makes me wonder ! (It's perfect because I was just gonna ask in another question).

What's the point of eVars expiring on hit ?
Is it just to simulate a prop and maybe send less server calls ?


Kind regards!

Since you only have 75 props, one could go for an evar with hit expiration if they no longer have props to spare.

Also, evars allow 255 bytes as opposed to 100 bytes in props.
