ARR configuration of buffer settings

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi to all,

I'm trying to implement google analytics, however I have a little problem with my infrastructure.

First of all, I have configured the outbound rules, and evethings works well. But I changed a configuration at ARR level.

A farm level, proxy - buffer size, I had to change the value of "response buffer of threshold", that in my case was 0, I changed it at 256kb (so it was able to write the javascript ad head level). But if I turn back the value at 0, it doesn't work. Any help will be appreciate.

Thank You

Giovanna

Can you maybe speak more to how you're implementing GA? Are you developing a web app?

I have an architecture with 2 ARR and several web server. The website are already developed and online.

I work in IT (infrastructure Area). I created an outbound rules according this article http://www.jcummings.net/automatically-insert-google-analytics-tracking-code-as-an-outbound-iis-rule....

And if a view the source page I sea the javascript code, only in the case that the buffer size (is > 0) (see up), if the buffer size is zero, that is my request, I'm not able to see the javascritp in the source code of the page.

Thank for you help

I see. It is my role to advise you against such code insertion because of the following points:

- this method does not allow for any kind of customization. 

- your customers will only collect 'vanilla' data

- you essentially restrict data collection to one property.

 

HAVING SAID THAT

in your case the tracking code itself should take less than 1 kilobyte (around 400 bytes but allowing for UTF-8/16)

It should be safe for you to increase that buffer to, say 2K.

 

Again, it makes much more sense from a tracking perspective to allow for individual sites the customization they need.

Even using Google Tag Manager for ARR would eventually hit the same limitation.
