ANALYZER > ACTIVE IP
This tool is to display the most recent IPs that have been actively surfing your site. Using the field at the top you can view any range of click counts to IP in the last 24 hours. When you reference the data using the tool it can help you to spot cheaters or hitbots in your traffic pool. With this tool you can also use it to view the overall productivity of your site, as the longer you have surfers staying and clicking, the more successful your site is(in most cases). Clicks >= # is shown in the header of this tool, and is read as: Clicks Greater-Than (>) OR Equal-to (=) the Value you have input in the box. And the Headings below are informational in this sense:
IP: is going to give you the IP that created the clicks, and if you click this IP will give you whois data for the IP.
Clicks: the # of clicks that the IP has generated and Trade Pulse has accurately counted.
From: the referring trade or source(be it SE or bookmark or nocookie, etc...) and the AVERAGE time, in seconds, between clicks. (Longer the visitor has between clicks is going to in most cases mean that the surfer is real, and that they are spending alot of time viewing each gallery, and each link they have found on your site)
ANALYZER > FAST CLICKS
This screen is used to analyze the timespan between clicks coming from the same IP address. This value is important as you try and determine if a trade is sending bot or bunk traffic to your site. Using the tool you can see how many clicks are generated in LESS-THAN (<) or EQUAL-TO (=) the value you have in the dropdown box. This value is in seconds, and seeing higher percentage values is going to point you in the direction of a possible cheater and/or a site with a much lower skim than your site, so the surfer is not used to the misleading links your site may have, so maybe something you need to alter on your site or the individual trades traffic coming to your site.
ANALYZER > SURFERS ACTIVITY
This is a very simple tool to use, as it is there to show you what percentage of your traffic is clicking X amount of times. You can go anywhere from 1 to 20 clicks and view the respective data that this tool generates. Just as the title says, it analyzes the activity of each surfer and then groups them based on the # of clicks each surfer clicked. This tool is not only helpful for anti-cheat operations, but also to help you review your sites overall productivity.
ANALYZER > ANTI-CHEAT
The anti-cheat tool is very useful for analyzing traffic from all sources and sorting through the numbers to find a cheater or bad source of traffic. Using this tool you can spot high proxy percentages of traffic, low unique percentage values, traffic qualities out of the range you find to be acceptable, unacceptable noimg traffic (explained HERE), excesive bot traffic (traffic that clicked a link, for example, called 'bot', used like: "/tp/out.php?link=bot" or so, find more info HERE). You can also edit, delete, view graphs, and other respective details of the traffic source within this screen. Other useful things in this screen is the ip variance in relation to the amount of clicks generated from that trade, so that you know the same ip has not been the source of the bulk of clicks.
NETWORK > STATS
This is a very useful tool for site owners that have more than one Trade Pulse site to manage. Here you can see the 24 hour and 60 Minute stats for the trades individually or as a total network number by viewing the bottom values of the table. Lots of potential to use this screen to view all your stats in one location, as well as links to login to each individual site by using the link "Login" at the right side of each trade.
NETWORK > MANAGE
This screen is setup to allow you to manage the other Trade Pulse Installs you have access to. Here you can add, remove, and edit the information that will allow your Trade Pulse Installations to communicate properly. Fill in the respective data in the fields, URL - Login - Password - Niche - Owner, and you will be ready to go. Once you have added a site or more in this screen, you can go to your NETWORK > STATS page to view the respective site's stats realtime. Another option you can use here is at the bottom, and that is to Share the Network Login Info for each site added to the Network Management area. You can do this by either selecting a niche, or just an owner, or individually selecting each site from the list.

This allows your Trade Pulse install to perfectly manage the volume of traffic your site is currently recieving.
