Hi Denis,

your answers were very clarifying to me. :)

After these 3 tasks, when will the statistics be recorded? Few minutes after the upload finishes?

Our web servers will see the hits within minutes, but for performance reasons, we import the current day's hits at midnight (Eastern time). In other words, today's downloads will be available tomorrow for querying.

Another question I have is if the stats server detects that the same request is coming in a short time from the same IP, so it doesn't count every hit from my company network, for example.
There is no intelligence implemented here, since multiple hits from the same IP could possibly represent multiple (legitimate) downloads.  I think the key metric to any download statistic is the trend information -- not the actual number.

Keep in mind -- we will see ballot-stuffers.  It's only a matter of time.  Your trend data should make it obvious, however, so it should be easy to normalize.
