The following are terms used in the CardioLog user interface:



Report pages may be scheduled at regular intervals and present data about individual items and pages based on the widget(s) in the Report. The report may include several widgets and can be viewed either in CardioLog Report Center, or by going directly to the report's URL address.

Real Time Preview

Real time preview is available by running ad-hoc queries directly on the CardioLog database. This feature is available for analysts who wish to view reports at a specific time.


Templates can be defined for any object type in your monitored environment (e.g. Area, Site, List, etc.). Each template includes several widgets (similar to a report). A user can view real time data for a specific object in the Object Explorer by selecting a report template from a predefined list of templates. CardioLog provides several templates for each object type by default.


This is a visual component that displays the results of a query. There are four types of components:

  • Meter - a gauge component that only displays a single value
  • Chart - a graph component which displays data over time (trend).
  • Table - a tabular component which displays a list of data.
  • Map - a map component which displays visual geolocation data.


Metric refers to query results contained in a widget, such as the number of page views for a site, top search terms, user information, etc.

Object Explorer

Object Explorer contains a hierarchical list of all objects that are monitored by CardioLog. The Professional edition includes all objects in your Microsoft SharePoint environment.

In the Enterprise edition, Object Explorer includes other portals and applications. Object Explorer represents the hierarchical structure upon which CardioLog performs the various query aggregations, notably when analyzing subpages or children items.
