High traffic Piwik servers


We are going to run Piwik in high-load environment.

Could you tell me if piwik can handle up to 200 hits per second and 500k hits per second in peak load?

What optimal configuration do you recommend?
How many servers are comfortable enought to run piwik without any problems?

500k per second? did you mean per day?

generally we recommend to setup piwik on one large server with plenty of RAM for mysql and php and it can scale more than 10M pages pre month.

Matt, thank you for quick response,

actually I meant 500 hits/visits per second in peak load, 200 hits/visits in normal condition (sorry for misunderstanding).

more than 10M pages per month
It isn’t really good enough

I recommend you try it out and see if it works for you! and of course: Optimize and Scale Piwik - Analytics Platform - Matomo
