Subject Popularity statistics
Date Sun, 09 Aug 2009 21:25:21 GMT
Hello folks,

I've just committed an actor in trunk which collects popularity stats,
currently it works for resent messages, which are displayed in the
right sidebar of the main page. With the current design statistical
information is considered volatile and will not survive a restart of
the ESME instance.

"Most clicked links" is another statistic, which will follow soon.

Unlike the tag cloud, the popular messages snippet is not comet-based,
but I'm thinking about ways to do it efficiently.

Another problem is that since there's no way currently to find out
whether a message has been resent or not, you can resend as many times
as you wish, and skew the statistics to your advantage. This can be
easily solved with another DB change, where a field in the mailbox
records whether a message has been resent already.

Have fun,
