GA not showing any traffic data from last 24 hours. The realtime report still showing proper traffic. The sit is up and running without any down time. There is no traffic filter configured with our account. GA code didn't changed at all from last one year.

Hi @Arsalan A  :-)

If the real time tracking is working, then it is fair indication that the standard reporting is also working. It can sometimes take up to 48hrs for data  to be processed into the standard reports. It's not an unusual occurrence.

As per Google's Help Center Documentation

- Processing latency is 24-48 hours.
- Standard accounts that send more than 200,000 sessions per day to Analytics will result in the reports being refreshed only once a day. This can delay updates to reports and metrics for up to two days. To restore intra-day processing, reduce the number of sessions your account sends to < 200,000 per day. For Analytics 360 accounts, this limit is extended to 2 billion hits per month.
So apart from the previous mentioned processing latency, in instances of sending more than 200,000 sessions per day to analytics, you also wont see the reports getting updated throughout the will have to wait longer for the reports to refresh and update with the new information too.

This information is also stated on the following page



There are also other collection limits and quotas that can come into play too

Hopefully you should find yesterday's data in the reports by tomorrow sometime. If you are finding that data remains missing for longer than 48hrs eg yesterdays data still does not appear in the reports after tomorrow, then it can be reported to Google with screenshots via the feedback button at the bottom of the analytics interface


Thanks :-)
