Relationship with crontab and realtime users


Just installed matomo. The main reason is that I want to now how many users are using my platform realtime. If I follow the suggestion "you can set up Matomo (Piwik) so that requests in the user interface do not trigger archiving, but instead read the pre-archived reports. ", Does that mean that I can no longer see realtime users??

Thank you


Visitor logs are always independent of he generated reports, so you will always see them in real time, but if you disable browser archiving, your reports will only update on every cron run.
