Understanding logged events in Logtivity
One difference between Logtivity plans is the number of logged events you can store each month. The easiest way to understand this is by thinking about the number of times users log in and interact with your site. A brochure website may easily have zero logs in a month. A busy membership site with 10,000’s of active subscribers could generate over 200k logs per month.
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.
