On this page, click on Downloads-Full list to visit a list of files downloaded. Use the browser's Find function to search for a file eg. framework_D.tar.gz.
Note: We see 26 hits in July 2104, but none in Aug. or June. However, we did multiple downloads using getbirch. What's going on?
Source code is in BIRCHDEV/getbirch/java-src/install. Main.java is where the URL is set to http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~psgendb.... so it looks like Java must be going through the U of M web server. Why, then, aren't hits from getbirch showing up? The path in the java source goes through a symbolic link into a different filesystem. If we went through FTP, would it show up then? If we did, then we might need to get permission to look at FTP download statistics.
It doesnt' appear to be FTP perse. It looks like the web server won't display downloads for any file for which there are less than 15 downloads. This was done by running wget from the command lines for different numbers of downloads. It seems likely that there must still be information on the downloads, but it isn't getting into the web reports. See data from software/BIRCH/Distribution/DownloadStats directory.
