Notice of guaranteed accuracy for top 100 entries


Does this notice go away with an active account when reviewing reports or for downloading CSV files?

NOTE: This list is only guaranteed accurate for the top 100 entries, and may slightly under report beyond that.

Thank you,

We compile complete lists of things such as Files, IPs, UserAgents,
etc., and keep them stored for use in the CSV reports that you can
generate. Those CSV exports will be accurate to 10,000 entries and

But the data files we use for export are much too large to send to the
browser for use in generating fast reports, so we also produce "Top
100" daily, weekly and monthly files for use in the reports. That's
why you see that message.

We do this to strike the best balance between speed and utility. We
find it's actually quite rare that a customer needs to know about the
101st most popular IP address that accessed his site, so the reports
we expose tend to be enough for most use cases. For outliers who do
in fact care deeply about the six thousandth most popular file on
their site, we offer that data export feature so that they can access
that information.

I hope that clears things up a bit.
