I have configured a new team site and i fetched the Usage report from Popularity and Search Reports-Alert* under site collection administration from site settings. I matched the same with site usage under site contents and observed that:
1. The no of unique users are same for a particular day
2. No of hits are less in usage report fetched as compared to site visits in site usage page.
3. I could not see the today's date data in the usage report I fetched but can see the same in site usage page.
Could you please help in telling what is the logic behind the difference in these reports.
