Web analytics is useful when measuring your advertising ROI. The reports can also be used to monitor the traffic your site is generating, and whether or not a site's pages are working properly. The marketing team has the data necessary to modify advertising campaigns to meet their target audience, and see which areas of their site is popular. Web analytic software provide administrators with data that can be used to create a better user experience for their site viewers. These reports answer the who, what, and where questions on your site viewers. Many analytics tools have the ability to create reports like top pages that appear in searches, percentage of viewers that are new compared to old, and percentage of views from various countries. These reports are generated using information via your web browser and your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol to ensure secure transactions between web servers and browsers. This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed across several computers until it reaches the destination server. Any computer between you and the server has the ability to see all traffic being sent. SSL protects your sensitive information by encrypting data so that only the intended recipient can understand it.

Data about your computer is sent to the web server via a user agent. The agent sends all types of information, but none of it is personally identifiable information (PII). When a user requests a web page with a browser, the browser transmits information about the user’s computer operating system as well as information about the browser itself.


X Error503

User reported that SharePoint is not sending out alerts, and the alert configurations within SharePoint appear to be correct. When I try to bring up SharePoint Central Administration, I get the lovely 503 Service Unavailable banner. Some of my clients live and die by these SharePoint alerts, so getting them back up is critical. Not to mention that if something is causing the Central Administration to not come up, what else is going on?

A little over a year ago, I was managing a company's SharePoint site. At that time their SharePoint site was running with a SQL Express database. This was not an issue because they were using Small Business Server 2011 with about 20 users. Can 20 users really outgrow SharePoint using SQL Express?

With several years worth of data, they eventually hit their maximum limit with SharePoint. SQL Express that has a limit of 10 GB. (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sqlexpress/archive/2010/04/21/database-size-limit-increased-to-10gb-in-sql-server-2008-r2-express.aspx) After a few hours of troubleshooting why SharePoint would no longer allow users to modify or load new documents, I soon discovered that SQL needed to be upgraded to the full SQL Server, but there are a few questions that need to be resolved.

  1. If we can use the latest version of SQL Server with is 2012, or can I use 2008.
  2. How many CALS (client access licenses) we will need for our application.
