Debugging Piwik Slowness

I am currently running piwik on a very lightly loaded site (1-2 visitors).

Does piwik only do tracking via JS, I am finding that there is a request like below (removed the important parts), which takes extremely long to load (around 500ms, which is the longest thing on the site)


there are several possibilities to track visits with piwik, including JS-tracker, image-tracker, PHP-tracker, server-log-tracking…
The request you are mentioning is the actual tracking-request. You don’t have to worry of long request times because this request is done asynchronously, this means it is loaded after the website itself and doesn’t contribute to to load-time.
