You will be prompted to choose between three views: daily chart view, weekly chart view, and detail view. By default daily chart view is selected. 

Configure view

The configure view dialog also allows you to choose what entry types and the date and time ranges you want to see data for. Depending on the view you select, you can also choose the graph color, sort, and auto refresh interval. Note that the more entries or longer time range you select, the longer the data will take to load. 

Daily chart
The daily chart view shows a graph of entry counts by entry type. Hover text on each bar displays the full entry name and count value. You can double click on a bar to go to the detail view for that entry type.

Weekly view
Similarly, weekly view shows entry counts over the selected date range for each entry type. You can hover over each chart to refresh it and view the SQL command used to generate the chart. You can also double click on the chart to go to the detail view for that entry type.

Detail view
Finally, detail view pulls data from the audit journal entry services and displays it in a table. If you navigate to this view from the daily chart view or weekly chart view, you will see data for the date and time or date range that you selected respectively.

The breadcrumbs allow you to navigate back to the chart view that you came from. Alternatively, you can click Configure view in the Action menu to reconfigure the options you selected.
