Wouldn't it be easier to let MirrorManager do that?
This way each mirror can save a counter per package and publish them
statically on the server side. To get a total amount of the data, all
counter files from all servers needs to be collected and that's it.
Maybe a bit less data, than collecting anything like in smolt...
Of course, this does not say 'how many computers out there have package
X'. Maybe it fails and one needs to download a package twice and so on.
But I think this would be a first great approximation.
I don't think yum
requests packages specifically from mirrormanager. It
gets a mirror URL from mirrormanager, then downloads everything else
directly from the mirror that it gets back.
