Medium traffic Piwik installation (approximately 15000 total visits, 19000 pageviews/day). We have 242 sites being tracked, with the largest having over 10,000 visits/day, and the lowest having… 0.
As a result, PHP frequently runs out of memory when trying to access the Dashboard, even though it’s been maxed out in the ini file. As recommended, I’m testing using a cron job to run archive.php using our development server to ease the load. (The production/live server still uses 30 min browser reports).
The site I’m using as a “test bunny” is one of our wikis (Mediawiki software), and it’s being tracked on both the live server and development server for comparison. One issue I’m seeing is that the visit counts are off. The live server (browser reporting) says we get around 2000-3000 users/day on the wiki, whereas the dev server (cron job) says there are only about 100.
Is this because I have two tracking codes embedded?
Additionally, the Page Titles aren’t being recorded on the development server. I think this also has to do with having 2 tracking codes, since I have a Sandbox Wiki tracked on only the development server, and it’s recording the Page Titles and URLs.
I’m hesitant to turn off the browser archiving on the live server right away, since we can’t afford to lose a day of reporting if things go wrong. However, it seems as though my testing using two codes is messing it up, since the Sandbox Wiki’s stats are coming through just fine.
