The Chartbeat demo site shows their nifty dashboard widget in the upper-lefthand corner that displays in real-time how many people are active on your site.
At minimum, I'd like to have a widget that shows how many people are currently on the site. That count could be based on active sessions, for example.
Ideally, just like in Chartbeat, it would be nice to also know for those active sessions:

It would be very easy to have a new Widget showing the number of visits and page views in the last 2 min (which we could define as Real time)
We also would need to prepare a new report to clearly rerport Mobile visits VS non mobile visits. I created a new ticket for this: #3133
In chartbeat what do they mean by "concurrent visits" do you know ?
We now have the Mobile VS Desktop report in 1.8.1
That IS a cool new report, but it's not real-time or even a sub-section of a real-time widget as I requested. But thanks for updating me. I upgraded to 1.8.1 and am loving the row reports
What are your thoughts on this one, would you like to give a try to the Real time visitor count widget?
We can not really give the same report as chartbeat does. The chartbeat tracking pixel sends an update request every 10 seconds or so to tell the server that the user is still online. the graph shows the users which have send an request within the last X seconds.
I would suggest to build a plugin doing exactly that. It would also allow us to have more exactly visit durations.
This will be done in this ticket #2041 to ping the page every N seconds
Postponing until specification is clarified
Woohoo! Can't wait!
In 1c181d9: Fixes #3131, add new auto-updating widget that displays the number of visitors, visits and actions in the last N minutes.
In 043c349: Refs #3131, fixing build
@jshare: You might also want to take a look at a plugin I recently wrote https://github.com/halfdan/piwik-barometer-plugin
@halfdan pure awesomeness. I got this working right away once I upgraded my dev piwik install to 1.11.1 (from 1.9.x).
Does the barometer needle ever move, or is it just the barometer colors and numbers that change?
I also noticed the time barometer too, cool stuff.
@jshare, the needle moves depending on the number of visits you have. I haven't got around to animate the visit once it updates, but this will come. Barometer colors are fixed (25% red, 25-75% yellow, >75% green), but if you have a suggestion on how they should change, let me know.
If the needle didn't move for you but the numbers changed, then this indicates that the "visit in the last 30 minutes" vs. "max visits in 30min interval over 30days" ratio hasn't changed.
Sweet! Onward and upward! Great to see this is happening.
you'll be happy to know it's already available in latest beta: http://builds.piwik.org/piwik-1.12-b4.zip (which works beautifully btw)
I upgraded my main site's Piwik install over the weekend to 1.11.1 and immediately put the barometer on the dashboard. Since it appeared, the numbers haven't changed at all in the past few days (from the left: 0 - 61 - 122 - 183). I would have thought that was the maximum number of visits in a 30min interval over 30days, but traffic has been trending upward the past few days, so I'd be surprised if that was true.
