UWNet Login Statistics, 2005 School year

Login statistics gathered from the UWNet captive portal (captivator) network authorization system. These numbers include wireless logins and also some wired locations.

Here's a preliminary look at UWNet usage over the last year.
This dataset is for Sept 29, 2005 to May 19, 2006.   This
is not an official report by any means and is presented here 
only to satisfy your curiosity.

Each row in our logs is one login event.  There are verious
reasons that someone might need to log in again, such as 
going to a different building, or they got kicked off the
network and had to log in again.

This also includes logins for users on wired ports that are 
using the UWNet authentication system.  For example, the law 
school often has 100+ users on wired ports.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Total number of successful logins during this period: 480484

Distinct users: 24491

Distinct MAC addresses: 24569

* This is interesting, because it implies that 99.69% of users always use
the same machine/laptop.  Interpreted a different way, it could mean that 
shared laptops, such as those you can borrow from the library, only account 
for 0.31% of logins on the network.

Distinct guest ID's: 794

Distinct MAC addresses for guest ID's: 823


Logins sorted by LAN:

You can not exactly infer that most logins are still on the legacy Wireless 
Wiscworld lan, as that network was slowly decreasing in size over the past
year as the UWNet building networks are deployed.
