I think it still runs daily. There was one complaint about that, but the
 user could accept that as a policy after understanding what happened (he
thought the feature was broken as there was no immediate update).

Sounds fine to me. Expect that to become a long file, though, with one
line per file (roughly 20000 files with at least one download).

I wonder whether it might be easier to have a single file, with the
totals for that server.

I would drop the "=" in that syntax.
