Hey Guys!

 

From time to time in the real time overview when an event is triggered i get a red flashing light instead of the green one that's the usual like this http://imgur.com/a/YKFqH.

 

Any ideea what does that mean?

 

Thanks in advance!

Red flashing light on a real-time element means it falls out of the scope of real time

Hi, all,

 

I think if you see red, it means the metric is decreasing, and green means increasing (at least in the context of the RT Events report). Here's an old article about that (just ctrl+f for " red"):  http://cutroni.com/blog/2011/09/29/google-analytics-real-time-real-time-data-for-real-time-decisions....

 

Hope this helps.
