I can't find Web Analytics service. It isn't in Services on Server.

In Site Actions there is " Site Collection Web Analytics reports, Site Web Analytics reports " And it keeps saying

"A web analytics report is not available for this site. Usage processing may be disabled on this server or the usage data for this site has not been processed yet. "

But I can't find it in Services on Server. Where is it?

The Web Analytics report takes sometime to build as the usage data propagates itself after the service is enabled and configured.

In 2013, this does not show in the manage services on server page in central admin unlike SharePoint 2010. Additionally, check your timer jobs section for the timer job "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Import" is enabled.

Thirdly, go to your CA Usage logging page and validate that http://your2013centraladmin:portno/_admin/LogUsage.aspx

Enable usage data collection is checked.

"Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Import" is enabled and the usage data collection is also enabled in LogUsage. – e.ozmen Mar 26 '13 at 12:04
Then wait for a day atleast to let the data populate if the site you are monitoring is actively used by users. – Arko D Mar 26 '13 at 12:50
I had the same issue in SharePoint 2010. The data does not become available instantly. – TempaC Nov 18 '13 at 8:40

Techincally, SharePoint 2013 has web analytics reports...but they're a trimmed-down version of the reports available in SP 2010. Here's the location of the reports:

We use Angelfish Software for web analytics with our SP 2013 intranet.

But can you trust a company that sells their product for SharePoint On Premise? – Jussi Palo Aug 4 '15 at 7:55
