Aug 2015: Survey, please respond. Thank you!

Wikistats traffic reports will be ported to WMF's new hadoop based infrastructure in coming months, but probably not all of them. If you find this particular report useful, and want to see it live on in the new setup, please add your signature to this survey page (report id = 21). Read more here.

Aug 2015: Warning, data are unreliable!

Wikistats traffic reports with a breakdown by geography (like this one) are currently unreliable and for some countries totally wrong. Please ignore data until further notice. We are investigating. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Page edits by bots are not included. Also all ip addresses that occur more than once on a given day are discarded for that day.
A few false negatives are taken for granted. Country meta data collected from English Wikipedia (population, internet users)).

Errata: WMF traffic logging service suffered from server capacity problems in Aug/Sep/Oct 2011.
Absolute traffic counts for October 2011 are approximatly 7% too low.
Data loss only occurred during peak hours. It therefore may have had somewhat different impact for traffic from different parts of the world.
and may have also skewed relative figures like share of traffic per browser or operating system.

From mid September till late November squid log records for mobile traffic were in invalid format.
Data could be repaired for logs from mid October onwards. Older logs were no longer available.

In a an unrelated server outage precisely half of traffic to WMF mobile sites was not counted from Oct 16 - Nov 29 (one of two load-balanced servers did not report traffic).
WMF has since improved server monitoring, so that similar outages should be detected and fixed much faster from now on.
