Ticket #17309 (closed: wontfix)

Download stats are off for 28 Jan. - 7 Feb.

I thought I would let you know that the download statistics seem to be wrong for the past week and a half or so. It's something I can live with, I'm just flagging up the issue in case you don't know about it.

My project ( sourceforge.net/project/aligner ) consistently clocked up 45-75 downloads a day for the last few months, then it dropped off to about 10-20 abruptly around 27 January, and seems to have climbed back up again today. Changes this abrupt are not really realistic, and the site wasn't offline much as far as I can tell, so I'm suspecting some anomaly in the logging of downloads.

Here's the daily stats for the period:

08 Feb 2011 * 54
07.febr.11 22
06.febr.11 10
05.febr.11 9
04.febr.11 9
03.febr.11 9
02.febr.11 9
01.febr.11 6
31.jan.11 7
30.jan.11 26
29.jan.11 10
28.jan.11 20
27.jan.11 39
26.jan.11 67
25.jan.11 56
24.jan.11 74
23.jan.11 64
22.jan.11 58

I do not see a similar anomaly with the Beta stats system, which is the version that is being actively developed and version of the statistics system we will be using moving forward. http://sourceforge.net/projects/aligner/files/stats/timeline?dates=2011-01-22+to+2011-02-09

Actually, looking at your stats with the Beta stats system, it appears that there are extra downloads from some sort of bot or misbehaving download manager that are being recorded in the standard (old) stats system, but is being properly filtered from the beta stats system.

As such, I'm closing this out as a wontfix.
