Auto archiving logging Piwik internals


(Claudio Rego) #1

I Installed Piwik 0.4.2 and everything was fine until, some weeks later, I updtated to Piwik 0.4.3 and started the auto archiving cron job.
After that the reports peaked at 1000+ visits and showed lots of weird data for that day:

Example pages:
/?piwik_campaign=dada
/2?piwik_campaign=efag&piwik_k…
/2?piwik_campaign=aggff&piwik_…
/d?piwik_campaign=ddefg&piwik_…

Example outlinks:
http://piwik.org
http://localhost
http://localhost.tar.gz
http://localhost.zip

Example downloads:
http://piwik.org
http://localhost
http://localhost.tar.gz
http://localhost.zip

Example external websites:
www.phpmyvisites.net
www.phpmyvisites.us
universsimpson.free.fr

Example keywords:
phpmyvisites
demo
ring bourguesan ffb
statistiques site
download
statistiques
soumettre un site orange

It seems like it includes the Piwiks instalation data in the rports.

Can anyone point out a reason for this and how can I remove this data from the DB?

Thanks.

Auto-archiving or updating doesn’t create any sample/fake installation data.

Did you run the visit generator? (misc/generateVisits.php).

You can try:

dropping your archive tables
deleting the fake visits and actions from the corresponding tables
running archiving from the shell to regenerate your archives

No. At least not to my knowledge.
Only did the steps mentioned.

Will try your suggestions, thanks.
