Performance limits on large scale


We are considering substituting the Google Analytics with Piwik. We have around 7 million page views daily with ambitions to go over 10 millions per day. Is piwik able to scale that large? Are there any installations up in the wild which are handling such load? What is the hardware configuration needed in such cases?

If there is no one having such high traffic numbers then does anyone can say (at least theoretically) if Piwik is able to handle such case?

Piwik can handle up to 1 billion monthly actions. 7M daily is not a problem on the right infrastructure. See How to configure Piwik for speed - Analytics Platform - Matomo etc.


Thank you for your answer. That really helps. Do you know maybe what is approximate hardware set-up needed to handle such traffic ( I am talking only about pageview hits at the moment with no fancy custom actions) ??

At the moment we will try to handle it on our own but we will get back to you in case we see that it is exceeding our capabilities.
