As almost everyone I think, I have a dynamic IP and it’s quite annoying to check our Piwik configuration to exclude our IP of the tracking of our website.
I’m using dyndns for other purposes, but I was wondering if it would be possible to use that kind of service to exclude automatically our IP from the tracking ?
Thanks in advance and pardon my english
You can use the cookie exclusion technique if your IP changes
I know the cookie method but it’s not really practical when you close your browser and you have configured it to erase all the cookies of the session
It’s possible, but will incur a tracker performance hit.
While we already do a reverse lookup for the IP address in the Provider plugin (so it’s essentially “free”), this typically returns the ISP’s hostname.
And last I checked, dyndns.org’s nameservers don’t respond to the reverse lookup directly.
Thanls for your answer. I thought it could be done “easily”, the way ddclient (Linux) works.
That would be ddclient specific and assumes php can read the cache file in /etc.
I wrote a summary of all “exclude traffic by hostname”- related posts over at
Make Global list of Excluded IPs accept domains ?
in that post, there’s also a solution mentioned using a shell-script.
So maybe add new posts there.
