In bug 392180, the updateType parameter was added to add-on update pings to indicate the type of update check. We should modify the parsing scripts to record this value, and only update checks of type 112 (per bug 392180 comment #14) should be exported to AMO's db if the updateType param exists. If the updateType param isn't set, as with older Firefox versions, it should be exported to AMO as well. I would also like to see a breakdown of the updateTypes for one day of pings just so we know how common the other types of checks are. Thanks!

Just checking in on this bug -- the whiteboard mentions last Friday.
Is there a status update on this bug?
Work on this was done a while ago but it wasn't pushed to production. I'll get a couple of days breakdown for you today and it should be pushed live today or tomorrow. Then, you guys can tell me when you want to cut over to the filtered export.
The breakdown is going slower than I hoped because we had to do some other backprocessing to recover from some unrelated ETL problems today. Here is the first day of Feburary, I should have several more days of breakdown tomorrow morning: utc_date | update_type | count ------------+-------------+----------- 2010-02-01 | 0 | 150494297 2010-02-01 | 32 | 2106 2010-02-01 | 35 | 4801 2010-02-01 | 49 | 123086 2010-02-01 | 96 | 1719683 2010-02-01 | 97 | 3342180 2010-02-01 | 98 | 433 2010-02-01 | 99 | 991 2010-02-01 | 112 | 23428846
Ugh. I didn't realize that the breakdowns for the other days were not put into this bug. They were removed after a recent DB upgrade. The percentages were very similar to the ones reported above. We are ready to flip this switch as soon as we get go-ahead from you guys. Obviously you need to communicate to your users that when this switch is flipped, ADU numbers for addons will drop substantially.

Alright, can we target for the new stats starting Monday? I'll do a blog post today and also post it to the developers' site.
Sounds good. I'll uncomment the updateType filter for Monday's export.
Sounds like this has been fixed (although my own add-ons actually had an increase in ADU...)
