bStats is a free and open source website that helps you to collect usage data for your Bukkit, Spigot,
Bungeecord or Sponge plugin. Integrating bStats into your plugin is straight forward and done
in a matter of seconds. Detailed instructions can be found on the Include Metrics site.
After adding bStats to your plugin you also have to create an account in order to register your plugin. You can manage your plugins with this account, e.g. adding customs graphs, etc.
All data that is collected is publicly visible. If you are interested in what data is collected for your Minecraft server, you can just look at the pages for the plugins on your server. Please note that plugin authors can also send data that is customized for their plugin.
If you don't want bStats to collect data from your server, you can disable it in the bStats
config file. This file can be found in the /plugins/bStats/ folder.
bStats has nearly no effect on your server's performance and the sent data is completely anonymous. The collected data is important information for plugin authors to improve their plugins and keep motivated. To value their work and effort, please keep bStats enabled.
