Use of the pvswim.org website continues to grow (based on annual utilization rates) continues to grow, but at slower rate than was initially the case in 1998 and 1999.
Recent meet results, meet announcements, access to the top times and similar items continue to draw the greatest attention. However, historical information continues to draw significant traffic on a daily basis.
PVS successfully transitioned to a new web hosting service last June 1 with minimal interruption in service.
During the past year, visitors to the site have averaged over 100/hr, over 200 documents are looked at in a typical hour, the site has almost 18000 hits per day and on a typical day, about 110 MB of data are downloaded.
The current searchable data base has almost all times swum by PVS swimmers since the beginning of the 1999-2000 season. It includes over 350,000 records involving more than15,600 swimmer names.
(Special Note: These utilization figures are significantly higher than have been provided in interim reports to the PVS Board of Directors this winter. Our webhosting service recently determined that they had been failing to process one of the two utilization logs that capture each visitior and download from the website. Accordingly, the activity since June 1, 2001 has recently been revised upward significantly.)
