Understanding logged events in Logtivity
A log is created when a specific action occurs on your website. This may be when a user causes a database change, such as updating a post, creating a new user, or when they perform an action such as filling out a form, updating a plugin or Logging In/Out.
You can disable any logs you are not interested in to reduce the number of logs you are storing if needed.
A log is not created for every single page view.
Why use a hosted activity log, not a plugin?
Here are 3 ways in which Logtivity is a better choice for storing your logs than a regular plugin:
1. Scale: Hosting logs in your own WordPress database requires more and more resources over time due to the number of logs you are storing. This can lead to a much more bloated database, slower performance, as well as difficulties in operations on your logs such as exporting or deleting. Offloading this responsibility to a third party service keeps your WordPress site lean and clean.
2. Specialisation: Being a dedicated service, Logtivity can optimize for performance, scalability, interogating and reporting of logs. In contrast, your hosting service may not be optimized for handling large amounts of data, which could lead to slow performance on your site.
3. Security: If your site has an issue, your logs may be compromised. Storing your logs with Logtivity is the same as storing your backups off-site: it’s a guarantee that your data is secure in more than one location.
