Fig. 3.


Count rate in the 0.3–10.0 keV band vs the vignetting-corrected exposure time for all the sources detected in the data set considered. FSRQs: blue points; BL Lacs: green points; other targets and serendipitous sources: light grey points. The dotted horizontal line marks the count-rate limit above which pileup problems become significant in data taken in PC mode. The red histogram represents the number of blazars in each time bin, showing three peaks at approximately 1, 2, and 4–5 ks, the preferred exposure times for blazars.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
