Statistics & Metrics

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

Fedora 9 (Sulphur)

Sulphur was released on 2008-05-13.

Yum Data

  1. ^  Totals will be off by approximately 3 weeks due to the August 2008 intrusion event and associated statistics lag. Since statistical counting was impossible for roughly three weeks, percentage comparisons are with the third preceding week's statistics in the previous release. In other words, this chart resumes by comparing Week 19 of F9 release and Week 16 of F8 release, and so on.

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.

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.
