Need some clarity related to "create new visit after midnight "


As mentioned in the global.ini.php, for the following setting "create_new_visit_after_midnight , ONLY CHANGE THIS VALUE WHEN YOU DO NOT USE MATOMO ARCHIVING, SINCE THIS COULD CAUSE PARTIALLY MISSING ARCHIVE DATA "

Can someone please provide more details on why this would cause partially missing archive data .

Will using auto archiving using cron job…(How to Set up Auto-Archiving of Your Reports - Analytics Platform - Matomo) help in not causing the missing archive data.
