In this chapter, the various types of metrics and reports in SharePoint are discussed. You can use them to understand resource usage and trends in your site collection. Within SharePoint are both broad, system-level metrics available only to SharePoint technical administrators and specific site and site-collection metrics that your site collection and content administrators can view.
