When is a visit ended? 2500 hits or image requests?

Adobe Analytics documentation says a new visit is calculated when:

  • 2500 hits: If a user generates a large number of hits without starting a new session, a new visit is counted after 2500 image requests.

Is this specifically image requests or all hits? It is hard to tell in this statement above.

 

Can someone help clarify?

By default a visit is over after 30 minutes of inactivity or at Midnight (when a new day starts). The hits limit may be BOT related. 2,500 is a lot of hits if a human is initiating them.

Can you post a link to the documentation you found this on? But essentially all tracking requests (at least with the normal AppMeasurement.js method) are image requests.. requests are essentially calling a 1x1 pixel image, with query string or post parameters...

Hey Jennifer, here is the link: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/analytics/components/metrics/visits.html?lang=en

 

Essentially I need to know if the 2500 is any hit or specifically image requests.

 

Thanks!

In AA terminology, image request = beacon = hit.

So yes, all hits.
