Revision as of 14:01, 30 May 2012

This page contains a variety of statistics about Fedora's usage. The Fedora Project believes that metrics are an important tool.

Contents

Who uses Fedora?

Lots of different people. Millions, in fact -- many millions! You can see some notable examples on the Overview page.

Fedora 16 (Verne)

Verne first ventured into the great unknown on 2011-11-08.

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 Because weekly stats were interrupted in the F15 cycle, these comparisons are made against a weekly average based on the nearest known totals.

Total repository connections

Total connections to repositories
Fedora 7 Fedora 8 Fedora 9 Fedora 10 Fedora 11 Fedora 12 Fedora 13 Fedora 14 Fedora 15 Fedora 16
4426684 7365867 4140961 4818972 5064199 5628470 4683533 5476997 2915494 2313203
TOTAL UNIQUE IPs: 37495837
This total is not a simple sum of the counts above. It is a list of unique IP addresses that have connected across all releases.


Note.png
Currently, there is no reliable way to determine the total number of Linux users, or even count the total number of users of any Linux distribution which does not have a mandatory per user registration process.
Anyone who tells you otherwise may be misinformed, dishonest, or trying to sell you something.

The numbers above do not represent a total user count for Fedora. We are counting IP addresses because that is the only thing we can reliably measure. OEM shipping numbers, application popularity contests, and other "estimates" all have intrinsic error factors as well. Without a 1:1 sales figure or registration process, user counting is a difficult problem to solve. Our accuracy section below has a discussion of what's wrong with IP number counts, too.

When you hear someone estimate a count of users, the right questions to ask are:

Precisely how did you arrive at this number?
For Fedora the answers are located at this page.
Where is the data located, so someone can duplicate the process?
Although you do need appropriate access to our logging hosts to gather the data, our Infrastructure team does welcome people who want to participate in their work.

Accuracy of metrics

The numbers above, for yum, represent unique IP addresses that reach our update server, not simply downloads. We believe it is reasonable to equate a "new IP address checking in" with "a new installation of Fedora", with the following caveats:

  1. Users who have dynamic IP addresses will likely be counted multiple times, which inflates the number by some amount.
  2. Users who are behind NAT or corporate proxies will not be counted at all.

The anecdotal evidence that we receive from different groups, companies, and organizations suggests that group (2) is significantly larger than group (1). As such, we believe that the true numbers in the field are higher than the numbers on this page.

For a more thorough discussion and enlightening information about the measurement of Fedora's userbase, refer to this blog entry by Jef Spaleta.

Why is the Fedora 8 count so high?

We believe this is due to the high concentration of Fedora 8 images on Amazon EC2. We may see additional changes with Fedora 14 and later as that release is expected to be available on EC2 on release day.

Smolt Data

Smolt is Fedora's hardware profiling project. It is an opt-in database that tracks unique installations of Fedora, and various details about that install. People who install to runlevel 5 will be able to opt-in during firstboot, but people who install to runlevel 3 will have to install the smolt client via yum and manually register.

BitTorrent

The following table shows the number of downloads that have been made over BitTorrent. This table shows downloads only through trackers connected to the official torrent server.

Downloads from bittorrent (as of 2011-04-12)
Sulphur (F9) Cambridge (F10) Leonidas (F11)[1] Constantine (F12) Goddard (F13) Laughlin (F14)
443,932 523,776 364,808 315,349 158,570 157,251
NOTE: these numbers seem incomplete and need to be checked against torrent records. --pfrields 11:35, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
  1. The statistics for BitTorrent were interrupted on or about 2009-09-04 Fedora 11 because of a torrent server reset. Totals at that time are added to the current totals (F10: 306,696, F11: 169,832).

Direct Download

The following table shows the number of direct downloads of Fedora 20 media from unique IP addresses, as shown in the web proxy logs. The actual number of raw downloads tends to be much higher.

Direct downloads from the web

(includes a count of DVD, Live, CD disc 1, and netinst ISOs downloaded directly from the web)

Accounts 2010-02.jpg

In April 2008, the FAS (Fedora Account System) process was converted to a click-through process instead of a manual process of GPG signing and fax/email.

Translations

Details about the progress of the localisation can be found in our transifex instance.

Ambassadors

Information about the number of Fedora Ambassadors.

Translators

Information on the growth and numbers of Fedora Translators.

Maps

A variety of maps showing various statistics.

Bodhi Updates

Bodhi is the system that is responsible for publishing package updates to Fedora releases. It tracks various statistics and generates graphs under the 'Metrics' section of each release.

Charts

Some charts are available reflecting some of the information shown on this page. Up-to-date charts are available at the Fedora community portal.

Legacy Statistics

Older releases and years are on the Legacy statistics page.

Commands

Information on how these statistics are gathered is found here.
