Exactly what does Users Active in the stats mean?

In the ACP stats?

This number does not seem to accurately correlate to other numbers.

Does anyone know how it is calculated? It is simply the IP's who visited in a 24 hour period?

Right - but the stats on the chart show a total in each day.......I'm wondering exactly what that means?
Is it peak, total, etc. etc.

Sorry to bring up an old topic,
However, this can't be right. As I have 2k members registered on my forums, but it is saying I have had over 7k active users in my statistics o_O
Are you sure? You're looking per day? Anything coarser than per day will not make sense.

The stats are misleading (I've complained about this before) as if you request the stats per month for example, it'll total the per day stats (as it would for posts, etc) but you can't do that for users as you end up with double-counting the same user multiple times.
