  • Look into different dimensions including browser, OS
  • Virtualpv schema was migrated to Event Platform in July 2021 (T238138) Would that have impacted data collection?
  • August drop is due to loss of eventlogging data (instrumentation issues identified and fixed in T288655)

Re-prioritizing this to medium; it is still important, but questions around the pageview data loss have taken higher priority.
