Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Download statistics for p2 repositories?

I have re-opened this bug in cross-project list. It was "lost" in "sim rel" component.

It captures some of the discussion last year. Some of which was also conducted on this mailing list last year, such as see

This is a good time to re-surface the issue so there's time to test during M6 and M7.

As you may know, does not possess the ability to maintain download statistics of p2-enabled repositories.  We'd like to change that for Helios.

With the Update Manager, we came up with the Single File Hack.  Essentially, one JAR file representing one user download was using an absolute URL mapped to an server.  All other JAR files would be served from the mirror the user had selected.  This hack worked quite well.

In the p2 world, I am told that the Single File Hack is still be possible, but it requires tweaking the p2 repositories.  I'd like to investigate (and enable) this for the Helios repo, and document a procedure that would enable individual projects to gather download statistics should they wish to do so.

Since I'm not a p2 expert by any means, could anyone help explain how to configure a p2 repo in such a way that a single JAR file is fetched from and all others from mirrors?

Thanks in advance for your help,
