PRTG Traffic Grapher - number of users



Hi. I'm just trying to understand what some PRTG metrics are telling me. My weekly monitoring reports using PRTG Traffic Grapher display "current users" as detected by IIS as a decimal (eg: Monday 0.023; Tuesday 0.743 etc). What is a "current user"?

"current user" should be the amount of users accessing the IIS (or websites on it). Over the time of a day the number is averaged, which should be the reason for numbers of 0.023.

Best Regards.
