What is the best load balancing practice for piwik?

Hi ,

We have implemented load balancer environment as follows

We have configured piwik on 2 web servers(IIS) having own piwik databases installed and one UI server having own database for viewing reports.These servers have circular replication in between them.There is implemented load balancing(layer 7 load balancers)environment for web servers to handle requests.
Load balancer has cookies enabled to handle same browsing sessions requests.
Also web servers databases are configured for auto increment id’s so that one db server will generate odd id’s and one will generate even id’s so that replication work well.

We are tracking total 4 million requests per day for different websites.

Kind Regards

In my previous post I have mentioned 4 million requests per day that piwik was capturing,It was actually .4 million(4 Lakhs) per day.

Now a days our maximum hit rate is 1.3 million per day and piwik is working great.

Thanks to all piwik community. :slight_smile:
