What counts as big?


(richbradshaw) #1

I’m thinking of rolling out a branded version of Piwik for our small design company. We’d be managing more than 20 sites that have around 200-300 uniques a day.

Is that big?

I’d planned one install for all sites, is that the right way?

I’d be installing it on shared hosting from Dreamhost, unlimited storage and bandwidth, but not CPU/RAM. Is that likely to be a problem?

Basically, is this going to kill my server, or am I going to be fine?

That’s a small setup.

That’s correct.

Not with this size. There are companies using Piwik with thousands of websites without any problems. The MultiSites plugin is currently a bottle neck if you have hundrets of websites.

You’ll be perfectly fine.

Good luck with your setup!

So what would qualify as a bigger setup then?

Depends on number of websites vs. number of hits of course.

E.g.:
If you have a single website with millions of hits per day your Piwik instance would need to process a lot of data.

Similarly if you have hundrets/thousands of websites with an average of 500-5000 hits per day piwik needs to track a lot of data.

Personally I’d count a Piwik installation as big if it has ~100.000 - 1 Million Hits per day, but again that’s just my opinion.
