The idea here is to create a remote service that will generate visits to the user's Piwik installation.


  • scripted to send requests to piwik.php directly
  • service throttling to avoid abuse
  • user must enable the troubleshooting plugin which allows the service to add a test web site and collect test results to complete the feedback loop
  • present test results to the user


  • a smart bot that visits the user's web page to see if the tracking code runs (i.e., pasted correctly)

risky to generate any hits on third party server. See also #588

For troubleshooting, an alternative is to give more feedback about what is happening (no logs at all? logs, but no archives? etc.) See #404
