Hi Prakash

I believe you need need to remove the AbstractFilter from the filter chain built in IRStats::CLI::update_table (is that what you did?). Note that old data won't be processed unless drop or remove all data from the irs_* tables.

I might have missed something because I'm looking at our code which has been modified a bit. 

A warning: we experimented with including abstract accesses in IRStats data but it added too much data and the processing times became unacceptable.

Subject: [EP-tech] IRStats filter for fulltext

I want to get IRStats to pull fulltext _and_ abstract accesses from the Eprints access table into the IRStats access table. I commented out the relevant lines in .../perl_lib/IRStats/CLI/update_table.pm.

After running

irstats.cgi archiveid update_metadata


irstats.cgi archiveid update_table,

I find that the IRS access table still has only fulltext entries.

Did I miss anything else? Should one drop all IRStats tables, run irstats setup again, and then do update_metadata and update_table?

Thanks for looking at this.
