Hi guys, is there any place where I could find statistics on how many times a particular map tile (image) has been loaded?
…seems to suggest that that kind of data is around, but I can’t seem to find it.
If you’re asking about the “standard” map on the openstreetmap.org website, I’d ask on the dev mailing list or in the #osm-dev IRC channel. If you’re asking about some other tile source (e.g. any one of the other styles on the openstreetmap.org website) I’d ask whoever looks after those tiles (there’ll be a link on that tile layer).
If you’re asking about your tile server, then Apache logs will give you an idea of requests and renderd START TILE and DONE TILE requests in syslog will tell you about render requests (assuming you’re using Apache / mod_tile / renderd of course).
On a well configured tile server, this statistic will not be available because it should not be necessary to end to end validate each cache hit.
