While it would be nice if the files themselves contained a reference to this documentation, the current format of the files do not allow comments.
Adding a convention like “Every line that starts in # is a comment” would be easy, but it would probably break scripts of people.
- (weak) Breaking backwards compatibility to pagecounts-raw and potentially breaking scripts of others eat up the benefits for me. qchris (talk) 12:05, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Abbreviation for mobile site
For now we went ahead with not treating the mobile site special. This
buys a nice, and simple abbreviation mechanism, without unnecessary
For example, regardless of the chosen site, when looking for the pageviews of Berlin on wikivoyage, the abbreviation mechanism is always to replace “.wikivoyage.org” with “.voy”.
.wikimedia.org wikis get abbreviated to
.m too. This does not break the 1:1 correspondence
between abbreviated domains and domains. But it's not as smooth as one
But alternatives—like using a special abbreviation for the mobile
site on wikipedia (E.g.:
the use of
.m a bit clearer, but would cause more
for people that want to consume the files.
Also, we want to stay backwards compatible with the pagecounts-raw files.
First, congratulations on getting this up and running -- super-exciting. :)
The zero.* stats just capture the relatively small traffic that goes to zero.wikipedia.org, and not zero-rated traffic to m.wikipedia.org, correct (see traffic dashboard, where zero.wp.org was inflated for a while due to an automated script)? I'd like us to make this clear, if so, so people don't draw incorrect conclusions about the volume of traffic.--erik (talk) 20:42, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

No file generation since 2014-10-10
Just after I wrote the code to switch from the (non-mobile, non-zero) pagecounts-raw, it seems this service hit a hiccup. The last available file is "pagecounts-20141010-150000.gz" as I write this, two days since the production of that file. I appreciate this service and hope the issue can be resolved quickly.
