Today, I'll work on getting database dumps in place so we can aggregate page views. I'll also work on a script that will add this functionality to the mwviews utility .


Have a shell script running to get a year's worth of page view dump data starting in May 2016 and going through April 2017. It'll take ~3 days to run. Tried parallelizing it (by having "&" instead "&&" between commands in the script) but this resulted in some 503 http errors. Have been working on a mwviews utility script that will make this downloading process much easier in the future.
