Page view Statistics remove2 users found helpful
Previously the Page View Statistics options was enabled in my website. But Due to speedup the site, I've disabled it. Everything is fine though but my concern is with the DB records stored in PageStatistics table. I can see that there are near about 95 thousands of data stored in the table. I think its totally wastage of DB space. It should remove the data while disabling this option. Isn't it?
TRUNCATE `PageStatistics`; OPTIMIZE TABLE `PageStatistics`;
Many c5 users aren't comfortable with SQL, or even phpmyadmin. It's a reasonable assumption that if they turn off page statistics, they don't want/need the data.
With that being said, I don't know how much a unused table affects speed. The biggest problem is probably with backups/migrations.
