Report Only the Maximum Value Within a Visit: Counter Evar or Numeric Event ?

Expert friends,

The context here is that I am measuring a calendaring feature

The request is to capture the maximum number of days seen within a calendar, which happens in 5 day increments using a Next button

I am capturing this in two different ways, with a Counter eVar (Visit Expiration) (+5), and a Numeric Event (5) upon each view

The request from the analyst is to report on the Maximum number seen as:

Days Seen
Visits
5200
10150
2550
10010

example

1. The Numeric Event is aggregating for all visits and when used in a calculated metric can tell us the average per visit. However it is entirely possible that only a handful of visits saw many days, while others only saw few

2. The Counter eVar increments as it goes along, so a visitor on their way to 25 days will generate 5.0, 10.0, 15.0, 20.0, 25.0. Since this eVar expires on the visit and not upon an event reporting shows us one visit for each

I have created a Workspace Histogram that gets us there, but it is not flexible enough. It has to be tabular

Do you think this needs to be solved with a calculated metric ?

Do we have a way to transmit the Maximum value of the visit, though we never know when the visit is over ?
