For each farm the reports are combined as Site, Web Application and Site Collection. Further they can also group the reports in the basis of the service application. The reports will show the data of the last thirty days. This is a default setting. There is an option to change the default setting. The data can be stored for a period of up to 25 months. This alteration can be done by clicking the analyze tab which is there in the Ribbon UI.
The metrics are displayed in two ways. One way is the trend report and the other way is the rank report. A trend report will normally show how a metric has been performing over a specified period of time. The rank report will show the two thousand results of that specific metric. The two thousand that will be displayed will be the top 2000. The report can also be analyzed using filters which are known as the string match which will be there in the user name, queries or the URL.

In the traffic report we can have an idea as to how many times the user has clicked or how many times the page has been visited, who are all the visitors who visit frequently and the like information. In this further there are the trend and the rank report. In the trend report we will have an idea about the number of times the page has been viewed, totally how many visitors have visited the page how many are regular and how many are not regular, the number of people who refer this page to others.
The rank reports will show which page has been viewed the most for current entity and who is the maximum visitor for that entity.

The trend report will show the query list for each and every day. The rank report will show what the issue that is listed every day is. These issues are for which either the user did not click on the result or for which no result was found.
