We are using Piwik for a week now because we reached the limit of Google analytics and our account was disabled.
However we are collection quite some data and I was wondering if our figures are ‘normal’ and if they can be optimized?
Any information / suggestions are welcome!
piwik_log_visit ~24,058,541 records 10.2 GiB
piwik_log_link_visit_action ~53,830,960 records 6.6 GiB
piwik_log_action ~1,736,122 records 794.5 MiB
We are using the QueudTracking plugin and use 2 dedicated servers behind a load balancer to handle all the traffic (Nginx + php-fpm).
Please see: How to configure Piwik for speed - Analytics Platform - Matomo
if you have any suggestion let me know!
Thanks for your answer. I believe we already followed all steps. I also just made another modification to delete logs older then 7 days. Saved me 6,5G.
We notice the systems are getting slower.
piwik_log_visit ~33,347,726 records 14.1 GiB
piwik_log_link_visit_action ~74,419,187 records 9.3 GiB
piwik_log_action ~2,381,018 records 1.1 GiB
Server specs (2x):

matthieu… your link is very helpfull dear… thanks alot for sharing here…
@pdorn with such settings you won’t be able to calculate real number of unique visitors for a month period. If you don’t need this metric, it should work fine. But keep in mind that you won’t have access to historical visitor logs.
