Statistics on the use of the PVS Swimming website (http://www.pvswim.org) are shown below:
|Time Period||Hits||Average Hits/Day||Page Views||Average Page Views Per day||Data Downloaded (Mb)||Data Downloaded per day (Mb)|
|1997 (from Nov 21)||144529||3212||34131||758||457.30||10.16|
|2003 (thru Feb)||1524145||25833||424751||7199||10236.55||173.55|
The searchable data base (from September 1999) now contains 456108 records involving 391438 times (the rest being NS's and DQ's)
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.
February 2003 saw the largest usage of the website to date (average of 31444 hits/day) and page views (8874/day) and almost largest download to date (202.49MB/day versus 203.33MB/day in March 2001.)
PVS is nearing capacity in terms of amount of information stored on the current site. Consideration is being given to opening a second site (pvswim2.org) on which historical files would be placed. This appears to be a more economical alternative than expanding storage on the current site.
