Looking at various Event Streams of my users, I’ve noticed that the Client Event Time & Client Upload Time have various time spans between them. Sometimes they are seconds apart, sometimes hours, sometimes days. Seconds or hours isn’t necessarily a big deal, but events uploading days later is causing real problems for us.
I understand that the Amplitude SDK has a batching mechanism so I don’t expect the timestamps to match exactly.
My question is there a way in amplitude to graph the skew of client event and client upload time? I want to get an idea of on average how far behind is the client upload from the client event time.
I found this old blog post with a chart that I want to recreate with our data (https://amplitude.com/blog/dont-trust-client-data) but the link at the bottom of the post is broken (https://amplitude.com/docs#timestamps).
Attached is a screenshot of an event that was uploaded days later:
Does anyone have ideas or recommendations on how to visualize this? Thank you!
