Answer is every "few seconds" -- which comes from their site...

"Near the top of the page, the number of people currently on the site that these stats are for is displayed, updated every few seconds. Below that, a timeline shows visitor trends for the previous 24 hours. You can click on it to view specific ranges in history. Under the timeline, in the left column we'll show you a few of the most popular pages right now on your website, and how many people are on each page. Beside the list to the right is a map display where people are in the world. Clicking on the list or map takes you to a more detailed stats page."

thank you for your answer, but this information is not what i was asking for. the "updated every few seconds" has nothing to do with the time window of the online users. the "every few seconds" is for the display of stats. i need to know the time window that defines the "online users". – kari_kari Nov 5 '10 at 10:40
to give another example of what i need to know: – kari_kari Nov 5 '10 at 10:41
if amung.us shows "100 visitors online" these whats the maximum difference of time between the first and the last visitor. (excuse me for the multiple comments -i just pressed enter to change line but instead it posted the comment :P ) – kari_kari Nov 5 '10 at 10:42
@Kari_kari:Just email them and ask... ;-) – blunders Nov 7 '10 at 21:24
