Project Download Stats

Projects hosted at can track download requests and issue queries for statistical and trending purposes. There are two mechanisms to record a download request:

  • For ZIP file downloads, using the mirrors
  • For p2 repositories, using Equinox p2 download stats

ZIP files

When linking to a ZIP file on, projects must use mirrors. The link would look like this:

where /path/to/ is the path relative to When a user picks a mirror site, the download request is automatically logged.

Equinox p2 download stats

To enable download stats on your p2 repository, please see Equinox p2 download stats

Querying the database

Log into the MyFoundation portal, and use the [tools] for all Committers option of the Eclipse Projects portlet.

Enter a partial filename to search for, relative to the downloads area. The broader the search, the longer it will take to return results, so try to identify the core files that make up one user download. Use the % (percentage) as a wildcard to substitute multiple characters, or the _ (underscore) wildcard to substitute one character. You don't need to use % at the beginning or the end.

Sample filenames:

   /tools/emf/downloads/drops/2.0.1/R : All 2.0.1 release build files (ending wildcard assumed)
   webtools%1.0.1%zip                 : All Webtools 1.0.1 zip files
   eclipse-SDK%3.2.2                  : All the eclipse SDK ZIP files for release 3.2.2
   /birt%1.0%zip                      : All birt 1.0 zip files
   /stats/%org.eclipse.wst.xml           : All the org.eclipse.wst.xml downloads in all p2 repos
