Why reports delayed for a week RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi guys,

    As a developer myself, I just do not understand why the reports are delayed for up to a week. You do run this marketplace against a central database, right? In my opinin, a download is a download when it is done. Why 7 days? Can someone explain?

  • I'd be interested to hear the answer as well.

  • Good question. Others (amazon, play, appstore) have it realtime or 24h delayed.

  • Maybe the download counters are being printed to a card punch on a remote mainframe.  Then those cards are shipped back to another company who has a card reader for that mainframe and read back in (with frequent jams).  Then those entries are submitted as a batch on a 3.5" Floppy disk that has been used 1 million times and has a lot of read errors.

    Sorry, I have no idea.  But the lag is making me crazy too. :)

  • I won't get into details because I have to run and unjam the card reader, but we understand your frustration and are working on improving the delay in these reports.
