Piwik 1.8.4 slashes memory usage
The latest version of the open source web analytics software Piwik includes optimisations to a core algorithm that will, according to its developers, decrease memory usage of the program by nearly 50 per cent. Piwik 1.8.4 also includes several user interface (UI) improvements and bug fixes.
Users monitoring sites that receive a lot of traffic should notice the decreased memory use the most. The developers say that the improvements made generating reports up to 40 per cent faster for such sites. The UI improvements in this version include better looking graphs, updated icons and a new way of viewing changes in the total number of visits to all tracked web sites in one place. The developers have also improved the password reset mechanism.
