Setting the Time Range Filter

This article explains how to change the range of dates and times that are displayed in different screens in the Cato Management Application.

Overview of the Time Range Filter

You can filter the displayed analytics data for a specific duration by configuring the time range filter located at the top of the panel. You can then use the filter to "scan" forward and backward through the analytics data, jumping by the duration currently configured in the filter.

You can use one of the following methods to filter the time range:

  • Using the date range filter located at the top of the panel

  • Dragging the mouse on the graph

Configuring the Time Range Filter

The current time range filter is also applied when you switch between other monitoring and analytics data screens (such as sites, users, apps, and so on).

The predefined time ranges are based on the previous number of hours. For example, the default time range of 2 days is for the previous 48 hours, and not for the previous 2 calendar days. These are predefined time ranges:

  • Last Hour

  • Last 2 Hours

  • Last Day (previous 24 hours)

  • Last 2 Days (previous 48 hours)

  • Last Week (previous 168 hours)

  • Last 2 Weeks (previous 376 hours)

  • Last month (previous 730 hours)

When selecting a custom time range, the maximum range is 3 months of data and the previous 6 months of data is available. For example, on January 1, 2022, the earliest From date would be July 1, 2021 and the largest range time range for the To date would be October 1, 2021.

To configure the time range filter:

  1. Click the date range filter DateFilter.png at the top of the screen.

  2. In the pop-up window, select predefined date and time range, or use the Custom section to define the range.

  3. Click OK.

Using the Mouse to Set the Time Range Filter

You can also set the time range filter by dragging the mouse across any graph in the panel. The distance you Time the mouse defines the time range.

To set the time range filter with the mouse:

  1. On any graph in the panel, drag the mouse across the required time range.


    The previous example shows the mouse selecting a time range of August 30 from 1:30 AM to 11:00 AM.

  2. The time range filter changes and the view is updated accordingly.
