Data in Google analytics unusually slow to update

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I noticed an unusual lag for processing data before they get displayed in GA. 

By example, since few days ,the audience => overview hourly report takes now much longer to update (4 or 5 hours now versus just 1-2 hours lag before)

See my screenshot enclosed.

is there anyone who noticed this ? Is it an update from google ?

 

Many thanks in advance for your help 

Alex

Hi :-)

Usual processing latency is 24-48hrs.. this is not unexpected/unusual behaviour.

Current day's data is often being processed.

Hi =)

thanks for your answer ! yeah I also find this documentation. The point is that this "lag" happened really suddenly. 3 days ago we could see update every 30min - 1 hour. And since today it's up to 4-5 hours

 

Is something happened recently with the way GA process data ?

 

Many thanks with your help !

 

Regards,

Alex
