The WP Engine Monthly Report is an automated service for Premium and Premium Plus service-level customers, providing insight into their account activity within the past month and some overall WP Engine performance metrics.
The monthly report is sent to all Owners on the account during the first two business weeks of every month. If you have more than one WP Engine account, we will send a separate report per account. It is only sent for accounts that have been a customer since at least the 1st of the previous month.
How to read your Monthly Report
Site with the most page requests: The account’s site with the most page requests processed by Varnish or Apache in the last calendar month. Requests for static files are excluded in the calculation for this metric.
Site cacheability score: The cacheability score for the site with the most page requests in the last calendar month. This field is calculated by dividing the site’s measured cached requests by the sum of both cached and uncached requests for the past calendar month. Improvements made to cacheability can help serve new page requests more efficiently. Ecommerce sites (e.g. sites using the WooCommerce plugin), and sites with login or dynamic user-specific functionality (e.g. sites using the BuddyPress plugin), by nature tend to have lower cacheability. If your site falls into this category, aim for a score above 30/100. If your site doesn’t fall into this category, aim for a score above 70/100.
Traffic: If your account has been active for 2 years or more on our platform, you will see the historic month of peak traffic on your account. We also link to a guide to load test your site for high traffic times.
Performance: This provides information on how many installs on your account are on PHP version 7.3 or higher as of the data pull. It presents this as a percentage to compare to the percent of total installs on the WP Engine platform that are on PHP 7.3 or higher. You can learn how to upgrade your version of PHP here.
Security: We present the number of active users on your account as of the date of data pull, along with a breakdown of numbers within each user role. This is important to the security of your site and to ensure that the right people have the right access!
