Number of guests on scaled installs
We are running NodeBB (0.6.1) scaled to several machines, and it works wonderfully.
The only thing I have been wondering about is the reported number of guest users as reported in the users page. On two different browsers on different machines, I see a different number of guests browsing the site. Does the online guest count come from the server instance or is it read from redis?
Hi, the number right now is reporting the guests on that particular nodebb worker(process).
Once socket.io 1.0x adds back support for .clients method we will report global stats through redis.
Relevant issues :
Thanks, didn't realise it was that issue. (read it a while ago and remembered the cat picture though!)
I have added support for reporting the global numbers on master.
Thanks @baris !
