It's come up as an answer for two questions:

  1. Open, big time-series dataset (ideally web traffic)

  2. Where I can find a repository of software usage/execution logs (traces)?

Here is the main page: A Week in the Life of a Browser - Version 2: Aggregated Data Samples

But the download links for the 3 data files is dead. For example:

https://testpilot.mozillalabs.com/testcases/a-week-life-2/witl_small.tar.gz

The relevant HTML source for the page can be found in this GitHub repo

<table class="callout">
    <tr>
        <td><span class="headers">Filename</span>
        </td>
        <td><span class="headers">Download Size</span>
        </td>
        <td><span class="headers">Num. of Tables</span>
        </td>
        <td><span class="headers">Num. of Users</span>
        </td>
        <td><span class="headers">Description</span>
        </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td><a href="witl.db.gz">witl.db.gz</a>
        </td>
        <td>1.1 GB</td>
        <td>3</td>
        <td>About 27,000</td>
        <td>Gzipped SQL dump of all three tables</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td><a href="witl_large.tar.gz">witl_large.tar.gz</a>
        </td>
        <td>469 MB</td>
        <td>3</td>
        <td>About 27,000</td>
        <td>Gzipped Tar archive of three CSV files, one for each table</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td><a href="witl_small.tar.gz">witl_small.tar.gz</a>
        </td>
        <td>7.4 MB</td>
        <td>3</td>
        <td>About 27,000, 387 w/ event data</td>
        <td>Gzipped Tar archive of three CSV files, one for each table</td>
    </tr>
</table>

In this case, the links to the download files point to the same folder, which is empty otherwise.

Who can find these data sets? (so we can properly host them)

One hint: find this guy and see if he still has a copy.

I just snagged it off the wayback machine here:

http://web.archive.org/web/20110711102216/https://testpilot.mozillalabs.com/testcases/a-week-life-2/witl_small.tar.gz  

but more files can be found here by searching for '.tar.gz' or '.db.gz'

http://web.archive.org/web/*/https://testpilot.mozillalabs.com/testcases/*

Download the data


Download links from Wayback Machine:

    p.s. I fixed the links. The * in the URL was making the text italic. – philshem Apr 8 '15 at 19:54
  • idk @philshem i was just thinking about that. i could put it on datahub, but my account is for Open Hampton Roads Data, i could make a free standing github repo, but it'll be linked to my account....can you make a datahub.io account for Open Data SE - probably better taking up on meta – albert Apr 8 '15 at 20:21
