Hi everyone,

I've been thinking lately about osdev.org's bandwidth and whatnot and am a tad interested to know just how much bandwidth is used - is it possible for chase to setup some sort of stats page (webalizer ftw) so we can check out what's happening?

Cron job the webalizer run and then they get updated automagically :D

EDIT: I just tried http://www.osdev.org/stats. It works -_-.

EDIT 2: Except, the latest is May 2007 (perhaps the year is wrong or something)...

If those stats are accurate, he only used ~6gb of bandwidth in April of 07, which may sound like a lot, but that actually sounds quite affordable.

I have an "imaginary" 100gb bandwidth limit on my home line.. and I barely touch it.

@chase, are there any updated statistics? just so we know when we're breaking your piggy bank. :)

Just finished the update. Lukem95 caught me in the middle of setting webalizer back up. There were 700megs of logs to process :) and that is only for about a month of data. April of 2008 starts on the 13th. Webalizer doesn't handle "Page" views correctly because of the clean urls for our wiki.

There is a gap of about a year of data but it looks like data transferred is about 8-10x higher than a year ago. Probably close to 50 gigs per month. This doesn't count DNS or Mail traffic.

For comparison here are the stats for osdever.net http://www.pstats.com/scripts/reports.asp?id=613

I have a job that pays ok (Sun Microsystems Java/Solaris Instructor) so I can afford to pay the colocation fees and not have any ads. Plus I'm hosting with a friend ( http://www.eleven2.com/ ) that cuts me a pretty good deal.

I could probably host it a little cheaper using a hosting plan from some web hosting company but I do some other things with the server like running an old BBS game. telnet://xroads.macro10.com:7777

I got to learn something new about running a website yesterday. Referrer SPAM! Websites will generate traffic to your site with a fake referrer and if they do it enough they get listed in your stats. Don't click on any of referrers if you are at work or school, NSFW.

To keep spammers from doing this and using up even more bandwidth I've password protected the stats. I still don't care if you guys look so:
user: stats
password: stats

According to the stats for June, Ireland accounted for 0.20% of hits. Shows you how awful Alexa's rankings can be, which claim it to be an insane 20%, more than from any other country!: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traff ... /osdev.org

Thing is though, I'm from Ireland, I use the Alexa toolbar, and it was only a few percent when I looked at it a few weeks ago (I think..), and I discovered this site only the other month........


Well, it would be big-headed of little me to assume that my occasional visits had that much of an effect on traffic rankings, but it wouldn't be the first time. I have my own domain, with stuff that basically only I actually use, and Alexa thinks it's ridiculously popular.

Alexa also claims yahoo gets more hits than google. Nonsense :roll:

btw, I'm going to have to update the stats again. Since the urls are now forum.osdev.org, wiki.osdev.org and www.osdev.org we've got three separate logs. I need to test if it'll be better to have separate stats or if I can get the log files merged before generating the stats.
