      Description

      The settings for the new 1.6 Statistics feature need better documentation overall.

      (1) In the installation/upgrade instructions, we should be telling folks that they need to have the "solr" web application installed for Statistics to work. This doesn't seem to be stated anywhere.

      (2) There's confusion over which fields in dspace.cfg correspond to the new Statistics feature. Obviously, the following fields seem to correspond to the new 1.6 Stats. Unfortunately, they are NOT documented anywhere.
      solr.log.server = ${dspace.baseUrl}/solr/statistics
      solr.spidersfile = ${dspace.dir}/config/spiders.txt
      solr.dbfile = ${dspace.dir}/config/GeoLiteCity.dat
      useProxies = true

      statistics.items.dc.1=dc.identifier
      statistics.items.dc.2=dc.date.accessioned
      statistics.items.type.1=dcinput
      statistics.items.type.2=date
      statistics.default.start.datepick = 01/01/1977

      statistics.item.authorization.admin=true

      (3) Are the following Dspace.cfg fields still used by the new 1.6 Statistics? If not, we need to either document this well or remove them altogether:

                1. Statistical Report Configuration Settings ######
      1. should the stats be publicly available? should be set to false if you only
      2. want administrators to access the stats, or you do not intend to generate
      3. any
        report.public = false
      1. directory where live reports are stored
        report.dir = ${dspace.dir}/reports/

      (4) How does one choose to make the new 1.6 Statistics publicly available (they seem to default to being restricted)? Claudia and I (Tim) are trying to figure this out for the testathon, and it seems undocumented – so we're having to try and dig around through code.
