Aug 2015: Wikistats traffic reports have been discontinued due to lack of maintenance.

Please add your signature to those reports you want to see migrated to WMF's new hadoop-based infrastructure .

Feb 2016: three regional reports for page views (see 21/22/23 below) have been migrated to WMF's new hadoop infrastructure. No plans exist yet to provide a data feed for page edits.
Mar 2016: reports on browser and operating systems breakdown (see 1/2 below) have also been migrated to WMF's new hadoop infrastructure. See them here. This concludes the migration of legacy traffic reports to hadoop.

For a general introduction see Analytics/Wikistats/TrafficReports/Future

  12. High volume site statistics for detailed OS breakdown (e.g. OpenSuse or Debian as opposed to just 'Linux')
  13. Adam Taylor (talk) 18:24, 15 January 2016 (UTC). As mentioned above, this is arguably one of the most reliable sources for estimating usage share of OSes. It would be great if this was broken down first by client machine type (desktop vs mobile), and then by OS. If one is interested in desktop OS share, lumping Android together with desktop Linux confuses the issue.
  14. Dlawyer (talk)
  15. Mraeryceos (talk) 03:35, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
  16. Petronald Green The most useful metric in determining OS market share. Also agree with Adam where it should be broken down first by desktop/mobile then by OS.

3 Breakdown of all traffic that Google sends us, directly (crawlers) and indirectly (search results)[edit]

  2. It's the only page which ranks all Wikimedia projects by page views. Quite obscure additional columns and hence hard to use in discussions, but I sometimes used it, especially for the media statistics before wikitech:Analytics/Data/Mediacounts. --Nemo 09:45, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Feb 2016: Report "Page views by visiting country/region" has been migrated to WMF's new hadoop infrastructure. New monthly and quarterly reports have been generated starting from May 2015. There is no plan yet to provide a similar hadoop feed for page edits.

  7. The per-country statistics are very useful when considering any activity in a certain area, to give people a very basic idea of the distribution of visits. I don't see real deficiencies in the current report, as only the order of magnitude maters and is displayed. It's also useful to monitor trends, e.g. whether Hindi's share grows over English in India, but that's more hazardous and happens less frequently.

  5. Similarly to the previous report, but useful for the community of each wiki. Should be extended to all projects, not just Wikipedia. Very important in that it's the only piece of statistics we have on the project portal(s), www.wikipedia.org. --Nemo 09:45, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Unsure
  1. Nice trivia but I nver used it so far. I think it would be more useful if the numbers for each device/agent were expressed in percentage and the rows were sortable by any column. that would allow to quickly identify whether an issue affecting a certain user agent has a disproportionate effect in some region. --Nemo 09:45, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Unsure
  1. Very nice trivia for FLOSS boasting (Linux has more than half the visits of Windows in Italy and Japan, let's prepare for beating Windows!), but I don't know about reliability and I can't imagine a practical usefulness right now. Percentages, as above, may be more useful for some edge cases like deciding in what platform to make a specialised app for a certain country. --Nemo 09:45, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
