Enable Windows SharePoint Services usage logging

Before you can enable usage reporting in a SSP, you must first enable Windows SharePoint Services usage logging for the farm hosting the Web application containing the SSP.

Use the following procedure to enable usage logging for the farm.
Enable usage logging for the farm

1. On the Central Administration home page, click Operations.
2. On the Operations page, in the Logging and Reporting section, click Usage analysis processing.
3. On the Usage Analysis Processing page, in the Logging Settings section, select Enable logging.
4. Type a log file location and number of log files to create.
5. In the Processing Settings section, select Enable usage analysis processing, and then select a time to run usage processing.
6. Click OK.

Enable usage reporting

After Windows SharePoint Services usage logging is enabled in the server farm, SSP administrators must enable the usage reporting service. SSP administrators can control the complexity of usage analysis processing, and select whether or not reporting is enabled for search queries.

Use the following procedure to enable usage reporting.
Enable usage reporting

1. On the SSP home page, in the Office SharePoint Usage Reporting section, click Usage reporting.
