    Hello.

    I want to ask how to use Google Analytics Sampling.

    Here is my analytic code

    HTML:
    <script>
    (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
    (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
    m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
    })(window,document,'script','https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
    
    ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXXXXXXX', 'auto');
    ga('send', 'pageview');
    </script>
    
    In google documentation here
    Code:
    https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/methods/gaJSApiBasicConfiguration#_gat.GA_Tracker_._setSampleRate
    I only can see reference to _qaq
    Code:
    _gaq.push(['_setSampleRate', '2.5']);
    
    How to use sampling using "ga"?

    Update:
    I found the answer here :

    Code:
    https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/field-reference#sampleRate
    Code:
    ga('create', 'UA-XXXX-Y', {'sampleRate': 5});
