    We then pasted that into Blazer and started looking at the SQL. As we moved around the massive SQL statement, we saw the culprit. A very narrow range for allowed article’s publication dates.

    Ahoy is used to track visits to your site and specific user events that you define. Blazer allows you to easily query and view the metrics data. In fact, blazer can be used to query any data in your database, and it has some nice built-in visualization capabilities for metrics as well.
