Minetrack Data

Public domain Minecraft multiplayer server statistics

Since October 2016, minetrack.me has pinged and logged the reported player count (and timestamp) of several Minecraft multiplayer servers every ~3 seconds, producing a data set of over 500 million datapoints. The complete collection of databases, and all ongoing additions, are available within the public domain.

Using Minetrack Data

Beginning August 1st 2020, Minetrack automatically exports and publishes a 24 hour subset of its database at 1am UTC each night. The database is available as a zipped sqlite3 database (.sql.zip) or an uncompressed csv file (.csv). Both file formats contain the same three data points for each row: timestamp, ip, and playerCount.

  1. timestamp is a unix epoch time in milliseconds denoting when Minetrack has handled the network response from the Minecraft multiplayer server.
  2. ip is the (poorly named) hostname of the Minecraft multiplayer server.
  3. playerCount is either a int value denoting the Minecraft multiplayer server's reported player count, or a NULL value denoting failure to ping the Minecraft multiplayer server. Any databases prior to July 2020 will store a 0 value if Minetrack failed to ping the server. Unforunately, this means you cannot differentiate between erroneous pings and playerCount values that happen to be 0.

sqlite3 databases are additionally published with two pre-built indexes:

CREATE INDEX ip_index ON pings (ip, playerCount);
CREATE INDEX timestamp_index on PINGS (timestamp);

Files may be downloaded using the following URL format, where $MINECRAFT_TYPE is either "Java" or "Bedrock", and $FORMAT is either ".sql.zip" (for zipped sqlite3 databases) or ".csv" (for uncompressed csv files).

Legacy Database Releases

Prior to August 1st 2020, Minetrack's databases were manually published in large, numbered releases. These legacy releases remain available for download for archival purposes, however they are available only in their original zipped sqlite3 database format.
