Also, I want to be sure I understand the statistic properly. I'm assuming it would measure getting another hit from the same IP before a previous hit was sent, correct?
So as long as the server sent the complete file, no incomplete download would be registered, even if the client never fully loaded the page. Am I right on this?
I don't think you can target incomplete loads, more just reloads. As long as you aren't doing dynamic content or anything that would nix browser caching, I think you can put some stock in the numbers. I normally run about 2-3% of the requests as reloads. It runs lower on the sites with larger pages, and runs lower on smaller paged sites. Sites with heavy external js run upwards of 5% to 7%, while sites with Java applets can run as high as 15%.
