Viewing forecast accuracy

View actual impressions (volume) for specific inventoryAd space available on a website or app. The basic unit of inventory for OpenX is an ad unit. for the past year (and select a specific time frame within that year), and see how accurate forecasts for that inventory are.

To view forecast accuracy:

  1. On the Analysis subtab, choose your inventory and click Show Chart. Then click Accuracy in the graph. This updates the chart to display accuracy data (in percentage) for the selected inventory.

    By default, this graph overlays the accuracy percentage for three plots for a year in the past, which you can click to toggle on and off as necessary.

  2. To focus your view on the dates you're interested in, use the date picker at the bottom of the screen. Select a preset date range in the list, or set specific dates.

    This updates the graph to display the plot for those dates only. (You can drag the control bars as needed to reduce or expand the date range.)

  3. Make adjustments to your selections and recalculate forecast accuracy, as needed.
