Metrica is caches-compatible statistics collection extension for Mediawiki. It allows to collect number of page views (and page edits) even when your Mediawiki is hardly cached ( opcache, squid, file-cache, etc ), because metrics are sent from client to server ( like Google Analytics ).


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Metrica in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'Metrica' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.24 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'Metrica' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/Metrica/Metrica.php";

Configuration parameters[edit]

You can enable or disable metrics collection for special pages by changing $wgMetricaExcludeSpecials variable. By default special pages are excluded from tracking.

User rights[edit]

Only users with metrica right are allowed to visit Special:Metrica page. By default only sysops granted with this permission.
