The download counter added by #1842 is down (https://downloadcounter.libreoffice.org/).
Is this intentional?

History

#1

Updated by Guilhem Moulin 6 months ago

  • Priority changed from Normal to Low

Yes, it's been subsumed by https://stats.documentfoundation.org which uses a different backend. https://downloadcounter.lo was never really widely advertised and was visited only rarely but I guess we could add a redirect.

The counter was actually at https://downloadcounter.libreoffice.org/test

By the way, the data seems to have changed with the new download counter.
You can compare the old data (https://web.archive.org/web/20190802113142/https://downloadcounter.libreoffice.org/test)(see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:LibreOffice_and_Apache_OpenOffice_downloads_per_week.svg for its visualization) to the new one (https://stats.documentfoundation.org/data/downloads.json). I wonder which one is correct.

The new one also has more precision for the last few months (downloads per day) but the downloads per week aren't available after two years.

The intention was to make the new metrics collection more accurate. It uses Matomo's heuristics to weed out duplicates (download resumption or bots), robots and more.

Are these heuristics applied to all downloads or downloads starting from a few months ago?

In any case, I wonder why there's a spike around 2013 in the new download counter.

Old metrics are less accurate than newer ones: for old downloads we only had partial data available to import to Matomo
