The PoolCounter extension provides a MediaWiki client for the pool counter daemon.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called PoolCounter in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/PoolCounter/PoolCounter.php";
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


The C poolcounterd daemon is in the daemon/ directory. It requires libevent to be installed (libevent-dev on Debian-based systems). Run make to build it, and sudo make install to install it.

To make sure it is running, you can run echo 'STATS FULL' | nc -w1 localhost 7531, which should produce output similar to the following:
