If your site has more than one domain serving the same content, the server variable can be used to track which of those domains visitors are using. The following JavaScript will populate the domain of the page into the server variable.
s.server=window.location.hostname

If you are using the server variable to give a quick guide to load balancing, you could put a server name or number into the server variable. See the following example:
s.server="server 14"

While the Most Popular Servers report may be used as a load balancing quick reference, it is not a precise measure of server load. For example, back-button traffic does not increase server load, but is shown in reports. The report does not show which servers are serving images or large downloads.
Syntax and Possible Values
s.server="server_name"

There are no limitations on the server variable outside of the standard variable limitations.
Examples
s.server="server 18" 
s.server=window.location.hostname
