Stats logging is used to collect information about usage to improve the user experience as well as give valuable feedback to Eclipse team.

Collected information:

  • current timestamp
  • user agent
  • selected IU roots
  • destination URL (either the installer, or an external service provider URL)

The information is logged when the relevant link is clicked (download button, resp. external service provider link).

The data is aggregated in a file configured in the eppwizard.properties file.

Example from /var/log/tomcat5/base/statistics.log
