Beginning October 12th, one week from today, access to the statistics files exported by PrimeGrid will be restricted to authorised statistics sites and other authorised users.

We're still working on the final plan, but if you are currently using our statistics files, please contact me either on the forums, by private message, or at the email address listed on our contacts page.

This affects NO web pages. There are several bulk XML files, all of which are gzipped and end in a .gz extension, that are used by stats websites. Access to those files is being restricted.

The subproject statistics and any page that is linked to is not affected.

If you're viewing the content in your web browser, it's not affected. If you need to download and unzip an XML file, you'll need to talk to me and justify why you need to access information on all of our users.

Several reasons, but the immediate trigger was that someone was unintentionally downloading thousands of copies of the stats file at once, effectively performing a DDOS attack on the web server.

I won't mention them by name, but even if you figure out who it was, don't hate on them. It wasn't intentional, and they were very helpful in resolving the problem.

But it did bring to light that we want to control access to that file, both because of bandwidth and also because of privacy concerns.

Some of you may find this useful.

One person had been downloading the entire user_work.gz file just so he could read his own sub-project stats.

I've made that easier now. If you want an XML version of your subproject stats, use this URL:

https://www.primegrid.com/home.php?format=xml

Another thing that's been confusing people.

Only the big stats files in the /stats/ and /stats_work/ directories are affected.

If you're not downloading a massive gzip file, or your the URL you're using doesn't start with https://www.primegrid.com/stats/ or https://www.primegrid.com/stats_work/ then you're not affected by this change.

If you're running a stats site with a webserver for the whole world, you're probably using the big stats files.

If you're running something like gridcoin or charity engine, you're probably using the big stats files.

If you're getting information only for yourself, you're probably not using the big stats files.

If you're getting information for your team, you're probably not using the big stats files.

Some of you may find this useful.

One person had been downloading the entire user_work.gz file just so he could read his own sub-project stats.

I've made that easier now. If you want an XML version of your subproject stats, use this URL:

https://www.primegrid.com/home.php?format=xml



This now includes special badge information as well.

After a confusing couple of days, this has changed once again. This is how it works now:

home.php?format=xml

If you're logged in, this will show the XML stuff. If you're not logged in, you see an XML-style error.

home.php?format=xml&weak=<your-weak-key-here>

If you're not logged in -- and that includes if you're using a script or a command line instead of a browser -- as long as you supplied a valid weak key -- will show you the XML stuff.

Note that if you don't use format=xml the weak= parameter is ignored.

Also note that if you use this in a script (the intended usage) if you change your password, your weak key also changes and you'll need to update your script.

They're produced by different processes, so they're not all on the same schedule. Most are generated 6 times per day. Some are done once an hour.

I'm guessing some people might be having trouble with the passwords because there are symbols in there. If you're using something like wget, there's two things you need to be aware of:

1) Although it's not the most secure method you can put the username and password directly in the URL as such:

wget https://username:password@www.primegrid.com/stats/

You can also use the --http-user=user and --http-password=password parameters. This isn't any more secure than putting it in the URL, however. (Both would be visible via ps, for example.)

More secure would be to put it in .wgetrc or .netrc. You would use http-user=user and http-password=password.

2) Bash is probably going to mangle the symbols in the password, so replace them with their hex equivalent:

Assume your username is user and your password is !password!.

"!" is hex 21, so !password! becomes %21password%21

wget https://user:%21password%21@www.primegrid.com/stats/

Thanks for that info!!
Helps me a lot! :D


You're welcome. I'm watching tha apache log and many people are having trouble. It's a a bit of a nuisance using passwords in scripts if you've never done it before. Once you know how to do it it's easy, of course. :)

If it makes you feel any better, I had a heck of a time testing the XML I added to the private user account page.

It took me forever to figure out why home.php?format=xml&weak=<key> was working in the browser but not with wget. I neglected to change the & to \&.

Just a note for anyone using home.php?format=xml from a script:

I messed up the installation of the code on www, so it wasn't working before. It is now.

Also, in my instructions yesterday I said to change the "&" to "%26". That's incorrect. Change the "&" to "\&".

Hi Michael,

Have you noticed a drop off in the Gridcoin team stats since the restricted access went in?

Gridcoin is no longer accepting PrimeGrid as a 'whitelisted' project

I don't track team or user activity as a function of time, so I don't know. What I do know is that there's no noticeable difference in overall activity.

The Gridcoin devs are working hard to fix the problem. It's Gridcoin that caused this problem; locking down the stats was necessary to protect PrimeGrid. The ball's in their court to fix their architecture.

I just realized I've told the Gridcoin community much more about what's going on than I did the PrimeGrid community. Here's the scoop on what happened:

In early September I noticed that PrimeGrid was virtually unreachable for a few minutes. It turns out there was a DDOS attack against us, but it was a short lived attack. It only lasted a few minutes. Some investigation determined that this had been happening about once a day for a while, but since it was short in duration nobody really noticed.

By now you probably have guessed where this story is going.

Gridcoin needs our statistics, and collects them by having a large number of host computers each collect our stats files. At pretty much the exact same time. And these are really large files. While we have a fairly hefty server, and a decent pipe to the Internet, Gridcoin *is* a significant player at PrimeGrid, and all those hosts (over a thousand) downloading those large files at the same time was completely saturating our Internet connection.

PrimeGrid isn't the largest BOINC project, but we're up there, and our servers are more powerful than most. I'm not saying that to brag. The point is that if Gridcoin can effectively, albeit unintentionally, mount a successful DDOS attack against PrimeGrid's servers, imagine what Gridcoin is doing to all the other BOINC sites with much smaller hardware. Their only saving grace is that their stats files are almost certainly smaller than ours, and they may have fewer Gridcoiners (is that a word?) on their system. Nevertheless, this method of gathering the statistics is undoubtedly affecting many BOINC sites adversely. What is certain is that it has been making PrimeGrid's server unreachable for periods of time. That's unacceptable. Except for the fact that this is clearly unintentional, it would literally be criminal.

Back in September I reached out to Gridcoin. There's a fix in the pipeline. Things will hopefully be back to normal soon, minus the DDOS part.

We're not the bad guys here. Nor is Gridcoin. Everyone is working together to get this working.
