Fix '.*http.*' not being tagged as spiders in webrequest [5 pts] {hawk}
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Vital signs reports a large spike in page views from 9th Nov to 19th Nov (Although it is continuing)

To me this spike appears to be consistent with the spike in usage of the query service at
The spike can be seen on that dashboard should be excluded from the pageview definition / not counted as a wikidata view.
It would also be great if the data could then be regenerated for all historic days possible (if this was in-fact the reason for the spike)

JAllemandou triaged this task as Unbreak Now! priority.
JAllemandou edited projects, added Analytics-Kanban; removed Analytics-Backlog.

I messed up a deploy about a month ago, preventing the change merged here: to actually being applied.
I will:

  • bump refinery-core and refinery-hive (> 0.0.19) and update refine oozie job
  • deploy refinery with these new jar and new refine
  • restart refine process
  • document (wikitech webrequest, research pageview)

Change 254133 had a related patch set uploaded (by Joal):
Upgrade refine oozie job to jar v0.0.20

Change 254133 merged by Joal:

Per the drop on it looks like this has worked :)

It would be great to fix the legacy data here! :)

@Addshore: Not feasible since original user_agent is not present in pageview_hourly.

ahh okay! :/

Is it possible to add a not to the spike on the graph displayed on vital-signs?

I see these "A" markers on the graph already but I have no idea what they are about.

@ Addshore: The A are notes (there is a card if you place your mouse over it), and there is a note at deploy when the drop occurs.
Is there a necessity to add another? If you think so, notes are created using wiki:

Ahh, I never left my mouse over the tag for long enough.
Is it not possible to do notes on a per site basis?

It might be enough to slightly alter it to say specify there was a significant drop on wikidata this time! The drop on commons looks insignificant in comparison.

Wikidata dropped from a spike of 1.87 million to around 300k!

Notes are to the dashiki page, but I think you can modify the existing ones if you wish :)
