At Wikibooks we need to know the page useage (hit count per
page). The Apache Common Log Format (
contains all the data that is needed to ascertain page use.
The proposal is for a download of the Apache Logs for
Wikibooks to Wikibooks on a daily or weekly basis. It would be
acceptable if the IP addresses and dates were removed from the
download if they would violate Wiki privacy rules. Please
liase with myself or Rob Horning at Wikibooks.
The issue has been discussed most recently at Wikibooks:
and on other occasions.
Of more interest, and concern, to me is the admission on the linked discussion
page that you've been "slipping hit counters" into pages.
We don't keep such logs at this time; it's prohibitive with the
way the squids are set up. Resolving LATER for when we have
something set up with statistical sampling.

I would stress that the hit counter ran on an ISP's server,
not a Wikimedia server and it used an external link and
redirect back to Wikibooks that were flagged as such. Done
honestly and admitted openly. The reason for the request is
to avoid such extraordinary measures just to find out if
anyone is reading a book!
Changing all WONTFIX high priority bugs to lowest priority (no mail should be generated since I turned it off for this.)
This information is available from http://stats.grok.se/ Dumps are also available for raw analysis. Closing fixed.
