This module calculates the number of daily, weekly and monthly active users - often abbreviated as DAU, WAU and MAU.
These metrics are more accurate for determining how many people are actually using a service. For example simply counting registered accounts will typically include many dormant accounts that aren’t really being used. Many servers also track the number of connected users. This is a useful metric for many purposes, but it is generally lower than the actual number of users - because some users may only connect at certain times of day.
The module defines “activity” as any login/logout event during the time period, and for this it depends on mod_lastlog2 being loaded (it reads the data stored by mod_lastlog2). Each individual user is only counted once.
“Daily” means any event within the past 24 hours, “weekly” means within the past 7 days, and “monthly” means within the past 30 days.
The user count is calculated shortly after startup, and then recalculated hourly after that.
Metrics are exported using Prosody’s built-in statistics API.
There is no configuration for this module.
Requires Prosody 0.11 or later with mod_lastlog2 enabled.
