I'm currently doing some maintenance work on the web services of the Countervandalism
Network. I'll be re-creating the web server to use a newer base image in Wikimedia
Labs. This will also upgrade the server from Ubuntu 12 Precise (w/ Apache 2.2) to Ubuntu
14 Trusty (w/ Apache 2.4).
While there, I took a look at the traffic logs. Here's a summary of the past year.

== Unique visitors ==
From all logs since April 2014, we've seen 4013 unique IP addresses.
Raw numbers by day:
These statistics include spiders, crawlers and other bots. The logs of 10 November 2014
were partially corrupted due to an outage at the time.
The actual number of unique visitors may be different. Various internet providers around
the world routinely assign new IP addresses to customers (thus the same user has multiple
IP addresses over time). Users behind proxies will appear in the logs as the same IP
address (thus many users share a single IP address).
