Downloads-By-Day

piwheels blog – The mysterious case of the unexplained downloads spike.

For several months, daily downloads have been fairly constant, and have shown slow and steady growth. Throughout January and the end of February, the minimum was 23,383 and the maximum was 38,139. The highest ever was 39,153. All of a sudden, on 4 March, we got 56, 225 downloads, up 48% on the previous day, and up 43% on the previous highest. This continued rising. 5 March saw another new record of 60,324. 6 March saw slightly less at 52,879.

Why?

We don’t know.

It could be that the maintainers of a Raspberry Pi project (perhaps something like OSMC or RetroPiE) just pushed an update to install or update these packages in particular, explicitly from piwheels, but not their dependencies. Sentry indicates it could be something related to monitoring.

If you think you might know, let us know on Twitter! @piwheels @ben_nuttall @waveform80
