Statistics addon - causing huge database and ERRORS

Is anyone using the Statistics addon, and if so how are you managing the data.

I was running the addon and after 3 months the data logged became more than 50 mb, and I started having database errors, until I had to close my store to debug.

so I ask is there a maintenance procedure one should use if running this addon??

I turned it off and all was well.

I only run it for a week at a time, I don’t let it go past that time because as you know, it bloats!

Use google analytics, its much better and a lot more detailed

You can erase statistics data from time to time. e.g. every month.

Turned OFF!

I did like having it. but nothing is worth my site going down.
