Introduction

Many plugins, as well as October CMS itself, fire events to notify users about what's happening around them. For example, the RainLab User plugin fires rainlab.user.login event to indicate that some user has successfully signed in. You can take advantage of these events to monitor your website.

Adding Events To Monitor

To monitor an event, simply add its fully qualified name to the list of events provided by this plugin. For example, you can add rainlab.user.login to monitor how many users log in to your system over time.

Monitoring Events

After you add your desired events, they will be automatically logged as they happen. On the Statistics page under the Event Counter menu, you can see the time-series chart of any of your events by selecting the event name from a dropdown menu.

Known Bugs

  • The data point is not shown on the chart if the data is available only for one day.

Planned Features

  1. Add dashboard widgets
