Efficiency, Speed, and work f Site Stats turned off?
Cool extension. Two questions:
You talk about how efficient it is, and how it only has a few queries per page visit, but on a large site, let's take the extreme and say wikipedia itself, wouldn't a few MySQL queries per page across so many pages still slow thing down overall? I don't really know how these things work or affect speed, though. Smaug 01:21, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
- I'm sure there would be a measurable decrease in performance after adding it to a very large site, but I guess what I mean is that should you want this functionality on your wiki, I thought that there probably wouldn't be a much more efficient way of adding it... but now that you mention it, there could be a way of just doing processing once an hour by recording the difference of the normal page counter between the start and end of each hour. I'll save that idea for a rainy day though :-) --Nad 03:27, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
- It's independent of those hit counters currently. --Nad 03:27, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Out of the box, it doesn't seem to be able to be put into the sidebar (MediaWiki:Sidebar). I tried various formats, but none seem to work. -- FokeyJoe, 10 May 2011
