|Site Statistics: $wgHitcounterUpdateFreq|
|Sets how often page counters should be updated.
|Introduced in version:||1.2.0|
|Removed in version:||1.25.0 ( )|
|Other settings: Alphabetical | By function|
Sets how often page counters should be updated, higher values are easier on the database. A value of 1 causes the counters to be updated on every hit, any higher value n cause them to update on average every n hits. Should be set to either 1 or something largish, e.g. 1000, for maximum efficiency.
To disable the page counters entirely, set
$wgDisableCounters to true.
Note: This setting is ignored if using sqlite for the database.
When this setting is set to a number bigger than 1, the page id of any page viewed is stored in the
hitcounter table. About 1 in every (
$wgHitcounterUpdateFreq)*0.25 hits, the number of entries in the hit counter table is checked. If there is more than
$wgHitcounterUpdateFreq entries in the
hitcounter table, then those pageviews are transfered in batch to the
page_counter field (and the
hitcounter table is emptied).
