What is a stats point?
A statistics collection point (stats point) object is a mathematical "counter" whose scope of data collection is determined by its placement in your directory hierarchy. As calls are made and received, the properties of each one are collated for future consumption by display boards. Stats points can be configured to only collect calls of a certain type or calls whose properties match certain criteria.
