    Users and guests is intuitive. But what about connections? what does that mean?

    Also, most of the time, the real time users in google analytics doesnt match with the numbers I see in my nodebb admin dashboard. For ex, when I took this picture, my GA was showing 2 real time users comapred to 5 users showed by nodebb. Can some please explain why it is so?

  • users = logged in users
    guests = non logged in users
    total = users + guests
    connections = number of socket connections open (usually equal to tabs open to your forum)
