A usage report is not available for this site. Usage processing may be disabled on this server or the usage data for this site has not been processed yet.

When you try to view the Site Usage Report page, you may see the following message:
A usage report is not available for this site. Usage processing may be disabled on this server or the usage data for this site has not been processed yet.

Logging and usage processing must be turned on, and users must have visited a page on your site before any data can appear on the Site Usage Report page. Contact your site administrator to verify that logging and usage processing are turned on in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Also, if the site is new (created today) or has not been used before today, no data will appear until the usage log processing is completed (usually within 24 hours). Furthermore, if there has been no activity on the site for the past 31 days, you will see the "no data" message.
How to Enable Windows SharePoint Services usage logging:

Enable Windows SharePoint Services usage logging for the farm hosting the Web application containing the SSP. Please refer the following steps to enable usage logging for the farm:

-On Central Administration home page, click the Shared Service Provider listed under Shared Services Administration in the Quick Launch bar.

-On the Configure Advanced Usage Analysis Processing page, in the Processing Settings section, click Enable advanced usage analysis processing. 
-In the Search Query Logging section, select Enable search query logging. 
-Click OK.

Note: If advanced usage analysis processing is not selected, usage reporting statistics will be minimal.

Reset Internet Information Server:

-Go to the Start Button and click Run 
-Type IISReset and click OK.

Activate portal usage reporting

After portal usage reporting is enabled for the SSP, site collection administrators must activate the reporting feature. Until the reporting feature is activated on a site collection, usage reports are not available. 

Please refer the following steps to activate the reporting feature:

-On the Site Actions menu, click Site Settings. 
-On the Site Settings page, in the Site Collection Administration section, click Site collection features.
