SmarterStats ignore Query String Globally (All Sites)
Idea shared by Ron Raley - 2/20/2021 at 7:30 PM
Our fire/ems customers have display boards (TVs) in-station which supply them with 911 alerting, staffing, hospital status, covid updates, weather, etc.  These boards interact with our web servers through their domain name.  There are many pings and calls throughout the day.

In SmarterStats, we do not consider this website traffic for the benefit of our customers.  The boards increase views and can be misconstrued as legit traffic for their website.  We basically want SmarterStats to ignore the display boards.

So we programmed something like ping.cfm?DisplayCheck=1 and then in SmarterStats simply ignore DisplayCheck=1.  I figured out how to ignore query items per domain.

Can I ignore query items per server?  Can I deploy this change to 400+ smarterstats domains easily?

If no, please consider making query string ignore global.
