Max Packet Size warning

I get a Max Packet Size warning "It is recommended to configure a ‘max_allowed_packet’ size in your MySQL database of at least 64MB. Configured is currently 16MB. "

Why do you have these enormous packages, and what kind of data are you trying to store that need so much space?


Matomo can be used on very large websites with enough visitors for just the raw log data using up hundreds of gigabytes of data.

If your website has few enough visitors for this to never get an issue, you can simply ignore the warning. If you ever get “Mysql Server has gone away” errors or such, you might want to look into increasing the limits.
