A request was filed to gather the global registration data for a specific set of months [1]:

Generate the number for this report: File:Wikimedia Foundation Quarterly Report, 2014-15 Q2.pdf

Notes:

Recommendation: generate data from EL or using the NRU definition (Analytics)

Methods[edit]

Use a script to run the following query against all project databases on stat1003:

SELECT
    DATABASE() AS wiki,
    LEFT(log_timestamp, 6) AS month,
    COUNT(*) AS registrations
FROM logging
WHERE
    log_type = "newusers" AND
    log_action = "create" AND
    log_timestamp >= "20131001"
GROUP BY 1,2

And then use this query to aggregate the result to global counts:

SELECT
    month,
    SUM(registrations) AS registrations
FROM staging.wiki_month_registrations
GROUP BY month
