Does anyone know if LE keeps internal metrics about client use based on the mandatory user agent strings that clients have to send. I know they’ve been able to do things like block badly behaving clients based on user agent in the past.
As a client author, it would be a huge benefit to get some sort of access to the metrics for my own client. Things like being able to see how many users are on what version of the client, what platform they’re running it on, how many certs have been generated over a particular time frame.
To be clear, I’m not looking to see the data for anyone’s client but my own. Publishing all the data publicly, while interesting, might lead to petty popularity conversations. I was thinking more along the lines of some way to register with LE as a client author and be able to get like a monthly email report with some sort of breakdown of usage for my client.
It’s probably not a realistic ask as there are far more important things for the LE folks to spend their time on. But I figured I’d put it out there.
