Forgot to mention that I have currently stopped all Analytics jobs on
Hadoop (Camus, Oozie) as preparation step for a complete Hadoop cluster
reboot to install new Linux kernel upgrades. The reboots will be performed
in small batches to limit the blast radius but it might affect your jobs
Please let me know if you'll encounter any issue during the next hours.
Is there any standard implementation for split testing ("AB-Testing") that
is used or should be used?
I researched a bit on mediawiki.org but could not find any information on

We've been investigating some Fundraising nastiness, and I'm beginning to
think that it comes down to a faulty "kafkatee" feed going into the frack
I see about half the number of webrequests in our files, compared to what I
believe are similar queries done on the stat1002 copy of the requests.
This is borne out by another source of data we're cross-checking
against--we currently see lower numbers of fundraising landing page
impressions than of actual donations, which is clearly wrong.
Any help would be appreciated, with reviewing the queries I've made, or
reasoning about what might be failing here.
I can't get pageview analysis graphs to load on 2 wikis that I've tested,
and I've tried desktop and mobile on multiple browsers. Can someone take a
look at what might need fixing?

We use ua-parser to do browser detection so on this regard our preference
would be to do a pull request and add additional parser for Opera mini that
now doesn't look like it is in place. In our end we will just update UA
parser and get those changes. See:
The raw data (available for 60 days only) does have the raw user agent and
you can use that to get an idea of how many people have remote rendering
enabled. We can help you query the dataset as needed be. It is documented

We would like to announce http://analytics.wikimedia.org the domain where
the analytics team hopes to consolidate dashboards and data downloads (a
work in progress)
We have two dashboards to announce with data we hope you find interesting:
1. The new traffic reports with browser data for mobile and desktop domains:
2. The vital signs dashboard that displays several metrics that are of
interest like Pageviews and Unique Devices:
