Google analytics (Universal) has a bug since a few weeks on the realtime page and shows false numbers. According to what they said, they don't plan to fix this bug because they have developed the GA4 version. https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/228201905#comment283
But this new version does not allow to see the number of people connected on the site nor the number of page views per minute.
So I'm looking for an alternative and I found Matomo, but I notice that the Realtime page you propose doesn't give much information.
Do you think it would be possible to add the number of connected in real time and display the number of page views per minute? If we could find this same data on Matamo it would be great https://online-metrics.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Real-Time-overview.png
On a daily basis, we used realtime to ensure that our sites were stable, combined with a monitoring system under grafana. This allowed us to intervene as quickly as possible, especially when we noticed a drop in page views per minute, for example.
I think that following the bug of google analytics many will seek an alternative.
Thanks for creating this issue. Adding some more realtime widgets is something that seems to be requested more often in the last weeks. We currently have no specific plans to implement that, but this might be something we should consider.
Hi @triplesixman Thanks for creating this issue. Adding some more realtime widgets is something that seems to be requested more often in the last weeks. We currently have no specific plans to implement that, but this might be something we should consider.
Thank you for your answer.
I'm going to find out on my side to have this tool developed. I don't use Matomo yet but do you think a developer will be able to implement this via a plugin he would create, without impacting the rest of the Matomo platform and future updates?
Doesn't this widget do the job?
We remain far from what is proposed at google, see capture
display the number of page views per minute
I actually just came here to suggest the exact same!
The Page Views Per Minute graph from the screenshot above was REALLY useful to me, especially to easily investigate whether there was some intermittent downtime in the past 30 minutes.
I think this is the only thing I miss from Google Analytics, that Matomo doesn't have yet.

Question: What is your main goal for using Matomo?
...It would be awesome to get a realtime view that shows like a realtime view that shows visitors per second.
Yet another request, hard on the heels of the one above...
is there real time report like google analytics and how many page can be seen at ones
