I rcvd notice server overload has been contained.
It will take some time to patch data from last weeks.
Underreporting is much less severe than in previous incident, maybe 5% for
November 2010.

For permanent solution the whole traffic log infrastructure needs overhaul.
Different software will allow distribution of load over several servers.
Nimish Gautam is working on this, but this is a major change and may takes
several months.



Thanks. I very much like this reach metric, should make it a wikistats table
for all languages some day.

Point taken (the question was actually to be expected). I will need to find
a little time to do this.

under the title "Wikipedia Statistics - South Asia"?

I will wait for consensus to arrive. How many languages would that add to
the list?

Also it could complicate matters some day when number of speakers per
language for the region would be factored in.
Somehow Wikipedia knows secondary language speakers on a global level for
most languages, but per country/region?!
I expect quality of census data will differ per country. Does census even
measure secondary language speakers?

I added EN today, which makes this report consistent with other region

It would indeed be nice to extend or modify or provide as alternate view
following reports,
based on view and edit counts solely from the region,

Doing this for full report would require significant update in data
collection and presentation layer, 
for which resources are currently not available.

I could start with an extra row or column (depending on the report), for
share of views/edits from the region.

That kind of info is already collected and used on

But even this will take a while, for three reasons:

1 Other priorities 
2 Both data streams (per country breakdown of views and edits, monthly page
views per wiki) are entirely different processes. 
Different data sources, different servers, different accuracy, different
periodicity of jobs. One process is fully automated, 
the other not quite yet. 
3 While current sampling rate of squid logs is quite satisfactory for page
it is really too low for accurate breakdown of edits per country per
This is under consideration and will be improved.
