Standalone user level installing (w/ python bundle)

This is the recommended installation method, the instalation script :

  • Downloads and install Miniconda (x86 or x64) a free minimal installer for conda/python ( in CURRENT_USER_HOME/dspace-stats-collector directory.
  • Installs dspace-stats-collector requeriments and packages in the miniconda python enviroment
  • Creates a default configuration file in CURRENT_USER_HOME/dspace-stats-collector/config
  • Downloads lastest COUNTER Robots file
  • Installs dspace-stats-collector script in the user crontab

IMPORTANT: The instalation script and the dspace-stats-collector does not require superuser privileges and don´t install any software outside the CURRENT_USER_HOME/dspace-stats-collector. The collector script execute read only queries over dspace relational db and solr core. This tool doesn´t write or modify any dspace file, dspace db or solr core. It´s recommended, but not mandatory, execute the instalation script from de dspace user.

Installation steps:

  1. Check if wget and cron are installed in the system.
  2. Download installation script from:
  3. Execute installation script from a plain user (ie: dspace)
  4. Configure matomo site parameters provided in CURRENT_USER_HOME/dspace-stats-collector/config/
  5. Execute CURRENT_USER_HOME/dspace-stasts-collector/bin/dspace-stats-collector -v (will collect and send events for the first time)
  6. Check if the collector is sending data to matomo instance ( do not execute the next step without this check )
  7. Execute CURRENT_USER_HOME/dspace-stasts-collector/bin/dspace-stats-cronify (will install collector in user cron)
  8. Check/ajust the user crontab (the instalation script adds an entry automatically in the user crontab, the collector runs every 60 min by default)


This component is part of an alternative DSpace Usage Statistics collector strategy developed by LA Referencia / CONCYTEC (Perú) / IBICT (Brasil) / OpenAIRE as part of OpenAIRE Advance project - WP5 - Subtask 5.2.2. "Pilot common methods for usage statistics across Europe & Latin America"
