Disable the Statistics Module

Drupal's statistics module has a disadvantage: extra MySQL queries per page load. Even when using the Boost module, boost_stats.php can still call these MySQL queries. Of course, it is up to you whether you need these Drupal stats. Some people prefer Google Analytics or Piwik as alternatives. Other alternatives are server tools like Munin or Cacti.

Advantage

  • Reduce the number of MySQL requests per page
