There has been much discussion and sometimes heated debate, both here and on other blogs, about the actual level of usage of Sansar, how to measure that usage best, and what those statistics mean. Galen, who is a very talented programmer who builds and sells scripts under the brand name Metaverse Machines, has put together a useful and informative new webpage gathering together various Sansar statistics. Let’s take a look at what he has given us.

First is a list of current statistics:

  • The number of Sansar experiences listed in the Atlas
  • How many people are in how many experiences right now
  • The peak (and average) number of people in Sansar today
  • How many Sansar experiences have been visited in the past 3 hours
  • How many experiences were visited today
  • How many experiences were visited this month

Galen also lists the four most active Sansar experiences right now, with some statistics for each:

Finally, he presents charts of daily, weekly, and monthly public visitors to Sansar, showing both peak and average numbers, as well as a chart of the number of Sansar experiences built over time:

Galen explains the data in the charts:

The following charts come from data collected using a publicly available API. We take a snapshot of all currently listed experiences and how many people are in them approximately every 10 minutes. The “peak” lines represent the highest concurrent head-count across all experiences measured in those snapshots across the whole day (or week). The averages are computed by adding up the total head-count measures for each day (or week) and dividing by the number of snapshots. The gaps between each snapshot make this data imperfect but very solid. To avoid visual confusion, today’s data is excluded.

This is a very handy tool, which will go a long way towards providing a more accurate picture of how much Sansar is being used. You can find Galen’s live stats webpage here.
