The problem arised with source/medium reports. Up to 70% of sessions are privoded by source/medium indicated as "ignored/not set". It's about 200K sessions per week for the web site.  It's quite clear  why medium could be "not set". But what's wrong with source?

Hi there, 


It sounds like there could be two potential problems: 

#1 A problem with the implementation of your tracking code in Google Analytics. Try using the following article to QA your code setup: 

#2 You're receiving too many hits from your traffic and Google Analytics is no longer accepting/recording data since you've surprassed your quota. You're limited by the following: 

- 10 million hits per month per property 

- 200,000 hits per user per day

- 500 hits per session


Look into both possibilities and let me know if this solves your problem!
