A sequence of user actions that is missed by Visitor Log #7773
I have seen the following sequence of actions not reported in Visitor Log, this happening twice with two different visitors.
In both cases user first opens Java incorrect time zone bug on Windows, then Step by step Java Native Interface (JNI) guide and tutorial but this is not reported by Piwik apparently because user closes this page immediately, and then opens Time zones in Java: design discussion.
The first and the third of the viewed pages are reported by Piwik script as seen on the server log but in both cases the visit is not listed in the Visitor Log at all.
The first visit is logged as follows:
Both visits were not listed in Piwik Visitor Log at all.
I have compared Piwik with Google Analytics and reported the results here; this bug accounts for the four page missed by Piwik according to this report.
One more thing puzzles me although it is probably irrelevant.
These logs indicate that for the second page that was viewed and immediately closed without Piwik reported it, the referrer was in both cases http://baruchyoussin.com/java-incorrect-time-zone-bug-windows.html :
However, this referrer page http://baruchyoussin.com/java-incorrect-time-zone-bug-windows.html does not contain any visible link to the viewed page http://baruchyoussin.com/java-native-interface-jni-programmer-guide-tutorial-javah.html . It does contain a link to it in the head as a link element, link rel='next'.
--I did not import logs. All I did, was to install and activate Piwik on my site, let it run for a month and open visitor log. Separately, I downloaded Raw access logs from my server for the same period and compared.
