Does Mint archive older traffic?

How does Mint handle older traffic? I was looking through some stats today, and it’s recording 200,000+ per month, yet mint_visit only has 100,000 rows or so.

Can this be right? Is it archiving traffic somewhere?

Any data older than your database limit (see /mint/?preferences&advanced) is expired, except for totals.

Does “expired” mean “deleted”?

How often does Mint calc the totals that it keeps?

Yes, and every hit. As far as I am aware.

i am new to mint and i like it.

what does “except for totals” mean? which data is stored(longer) and wich will be deleted?

we started an new site (http://streetfiles.org) 2 months ago and we analyse our site with clicky. last month we had ~ 1M page views…
…so we will reach the limit of 25MB very quick.

i wonder if just the raw data will be delete and the basics are stored forever somehow…

When Sam said “totals” he meant “aggregate totals” refers to data that is not specific to a single hit. An example from the Default Pepper is the Visits pane Total and Unique counts. Subscriber totals from the Bird Feeder Pepper are another example.

thanks for your reply. where and when are these aggregated values stored? daily (nightly)?

i considered to write a pepper to collect this data - but probably it’s already build in.

This data is recorded in real-time, it is not compiled at fixed intervals. This data is usually stored in a Pepper’s data array which is stored in the mint__cfg table in the data column as a serialized array.
