Why Does SmarterStats change the Stat for DownLoads?

  1. I've been trying to evaluate which of the downloads on my website are more popular. I track both by month and all time.

    Recently, I realized that as of the first of each month, the TOTAL all-time count seems to get reset lower than it was on the last day of the previous month. Not the monthly downloads, of course. That'll change each month. But it's almost as if somehow the count is being truncated. I set the "From Date" to the earliest possible date (when I first set up the website) to the current date. And the total reported slowly climbs to the end of a month, then drops back down.

    I can -- and do -- store the stats off-line, but it makes me quite suspicious about the accuracy of the report.

    Am I missing something? Is this expected behavior?
