An analysis of access statistics for the primary PDB website shows that the number of hits it has received has remained consistently high over the past few months, with monthly totals of over 2,800,000 hits and over 2,100,000 files downloaded since February 2000. A new record of 3,117,732 website hits was achieved during the month of March 2000, which is 144,513 more hits than the previous record month of October 1999. The number of files downloaded in March had also reached a new record high of 2,379,710 files, 138,953 more files than in October 1999.
We hope that the final figures for the month of June 2000 will show that this pattern has continued.
While the www.rcsb.org/pdb address continues to receive the most traffic, use of the mirror sites and beta test site continues to increase.
